Re: Paint color

The owner emailed me at about the same time as the original posts. It was definitely not an Eliminator from the factory. The serial number is too low, the scheduled build date is too early (28K = October 28, 1968), the paint color (W) was not available on an Eliminator and the interior code (1A) is ...

The car is a sesquential series. Serial # 9F91R516789. Would that have included this muted yellow?
Thank you.
9F91R516789 is not an Eliminator, so it is possible that it was paint code "W".

Re: Paint color

If you are referring to a 1969 then "W" was an available color. It is a shade of yellow.
It was not available on an Eliminator in 1969. The yellow for an Eliminator was paint code "9" Bright Yellow.

Re: New Cougar owner

It will be interesting to see the Marti report.
Your DSO is 97 which is an export code, so it was originally built to leave the US. Did you also order the "Eminger" invoice?

How do you tell the difference? Wouldn’t the 3169 date code indicate 1969?

Thanks
3169 as a date code on seatbelts is the 31st week of 1969 which is July 28th to August 3rd which would be 1970 production.
Also as Neal stated they are 1970 belts because of the single buckle per front seat.
