1970 Mercury Cougar Eliminator Additional Info:

Ground Up Restored and Documented 428CJ 4 speed Eliminator w/ Build Sheet /// The beneficiary of a professional, ground-up restoration that utilized many original and NOS components, this slick cat features a correct layer of vivid Competition Blue 2-stage that's highlighted by traditional Eliminator war paint. Hoist the hood and you'll find 428 cubic inches of legendary, numbers-matching V8 that looks as fresh as the day it rolled out of the restoration shop. Long regarded as one of the meanest... MoTown mills ever created, Ford's fabled Cobra Jet utilized revised heads, heavy duty Le Mans connecting rods and a nodular iron crank to ensure blue oval pony cars remained the kings of stoplight muscle. Just aft of that legendary V8, a numbers-matching Toploader 4-speed spins a tough 9-inch axle. A factory-spec suspension centers correct power steering between factory drum brakes. And at the edges of the car, power meets pavement through Cougar-branded Magnum 500s and F70-14 Goodyear Polyglas Custom Wide Treads. Between the doors, a correct White Clarion Knit Décor interior features correct Hi-Back vinyl seats that, in honor of their pre-restoration appearance, have been with upfitted with stylish black appointments. In front of those seats, a symmetrical dash founds rebuilt factory telemetry next to correct 8-track audio. Below that dash, a factory console floats a traditional Hurst shifter opposite pick-free door panels that front correct power windows. And the driver spins an ornate, wood-trimmed steering wheel. Mixing a correct restoration with a storied drivetrain, this incredible Cougar is an ideal candidate for rounding out any serious collection. Call, click or visit for more information!
