Eliminators on the Market (May 2018)

#1

Post by Mike_B_SVT » 05 May 2018, 23:22

Making progress! Heater box is redone and installed, brake booster is painted, AM/8-Track is refurbished and reinstalled, still have a laundry list of things to do, but moving in the right direction. Just a matter of getting things put back together, for the most part. Can't wait to get it back on the road! Now I understand how restorations can take a decade, but how do people stand not being able to drive their car for that long?!?

As always, if you know of an Eliminator for sale or are looking for an Eliminator, please feel free to post here, or contact me. I'll do my best to help you find the Eliminator you are looking for, or help find a new home for your Eliminator, if possible. Send me a PM or email me directly at: EliminatorSearch@CougarClub.org

Also, be sure to check out the Eliminator Owners and Enthusiast group on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/473220306059769/
You don't need to have a Facebook account or be a group member to browse!

Don't be shy about commenting or asking about a car in the list. Folks here are always happy to help answer questions or concerns.


Did some "Spring Cleaning" on the listings a bit. Took out most of the Facebook listings, as many of those are quite old and may not still be available.

"Now I understand how restorations can take a decade, but how do people stand not being able to drive their car for that long?!?"

Mike,

That's why you need a second one, so you have a back up and don't get withdrawal. At least that's what I used as an excuse to get my Eliminator, it was to motivate me to get my other car done....... You already have the listing to choose a good candidate from. :whistle:

I think if I got another one I would have to live in it! Or be buried in one of them, because the wife would kill me!
