Today I got the truck moved to my place. Only 108 miles one way... I drove it around the area I bought it at and it want to go... But the brake pedal is sticking and I have to pull it up to get full release.
This is it, but I didn't get the cap.

Minor update time on the Q code. I have been collecting parts for the last year. I have the 428PI and a cast iron tail shaft housing C-6 from another 70 Police interceptor. I found a set of -N heads that work with the build date of the PI to upgrade it to a CJ. I got a CJ Holley service replacement carb, a new set of the cast aluminum find valve covers and a set of headers. As well as a bunch of small parts. The trunk is getting full.

Image

I hope to start doing some small projects on it after the first of the year. Like getting that crappy 302 out of it. I removed the heads and found that while it was a recent rebuild, it had gotten water in it and has rust in several cylinders. Oh well....

This afternoon I got the factory invoice and Elite report from Marti Auto Works. Interesting. It is 1 of 1. But...

Image

Apparently only because it is a California car.
I found this to be interesting, no prices on the window sticker,

I've already called Marti Auto up about this(will call back in the AM) and have discussed it with Mike Bank. He said he has seen a couple other Eliminators that are early build unit that are the same way. Note here on the Factory Invoice it only has dealer prices on it.

Image

So the car still has a lot of mystery in it's past. I'll post what I hear back from Marti Auto Works tomorrow.

Enjoying the posts, Neal.

It's a mystery to me how Marti calculates his "One of ____" figures. On my black Eliminator for instance, he calculates it as a one of one, but never includes the special paint option. Doing so would have cut the number of steps to get there by half, or more, in my estimation. Likewise for your car, I'd bet that of the 17 428/C6 std. hardtops in Competition Yellow with black standard interiors, 15 or 16 of them had the Eliminator option. I doubt there would have been a need to get to the radio/emissions equipment levels if that had been one of the earlier criteria. But in any event, its a cool car, and certified one-of-one, regardless of how he got there. Enjoy, and please continue to keep us posted.

My discussion with Marti Auto Works this morning I was informed that this car was invoiced before final pricing had been established and the original window sticker did not have retail pricing due to that. I have ordered another invoice for my first Cougar. 0F93H501543. I can prove I use to own it and can get a photo copy of the invoice. I am curious as to what day it was built and if it also went out the same way.

My Son has a 72 Mustang with similar situation, early build and 3 different invoices, one waiting on emissions approval saying property of Ford, not for sale until Federal approval, then the other 2 list original pricing and then a change 2 weeks later.

Did Marti Auto Works inform you of the multiple Invoices? I only received the one.

Neal,

No they did not, the three sheets showed up when we ordered the invoice. We did order some other things at the same time but there was no special notification note or anything. Nor is there anything on the Marti report about the emissions hold. The car sold several months later making us think with the hold it may have ended up being used as a demo since they initially couldn't sell it (even though it showed as a stock order). The PDF is too big to attach as here and I see that is not an acceptable format for the gallery.
