You would also need to know how many 1969 "Q" code drag pak Eliminators were built to have the "complete" answer.

My Marti report does not give me that info, just on R codes. That's all I got!

My understanding is that there were 13 Q-code SCJ Eliminators in 1969.

Mike and others, there are a surprising number of available and very normal 1970 Cougar options that are missing the production numbers in Kevin's book Cougar by the numbers. Maybe Kevin will do a Revision #2 with those new options included. We can only hope! Here are a few options that I noted as missing. If you know of others - feel free to comment, as my list is probably not 100% complete. Thanks!

Missing Options include: Drag Pak (V and W code), Traction Lock rear axle, Tinted Glass, Intermittent Wipers, Competition Handling, Appearance Protection, California Emissions.

You can add the Export options to the list;
Accessory Packaging
Touch-Up Kit
Touch-Up Kit & Export Decal
Metric Speedometer

Rim-Blow Steering Wheel was also available as a seperate option.

The book does not give numbers for rear axle ratios. But I bet it is only a few...
