Re: complete 1969 Cougar Speed Control system

69CoupeCC, would you mind sending some pictures my way, or posting them here? I'd like to use them for the upcoming Eliminator Book that Don Skinner is working on, in order to show what the components include and what they look like. I understand the car is not an Eliminator, but the book will also ...

Re: Boss 302 Eliminator Production

169 469 The increase in Boss 302 Mustang production was even more dramatic: 1,628 in '69. 7,013 in '70. Also, those numbers put into perspective just how rare any Boss-engined Cougar really is. Have to keep in mind that '69 Boss production didn't start until mid-April '69. So basically about 2 1/2 ...

Maybe the seller means it is the original factory paint color? The door jamb does appear to show faded Comp Orange. I think this...

Re: Should this be restored or replaced

Cool thanks. My car isnt a $200 water pump level restoration, it will be getting an off the shelf replacement. Thanks very much Tinman! Just keep an eye out for a core with a good date code. They usually turn up in the $50-75 range. Stash it away for a time when you are ready to take it to the next...

Re: 70 Power Steering pump color

Catlover, thanks. The next question is to figure out which pump I have since this paint is for the Thompson F code... 1967-1973 COUGAR W/ FORD THOMPSON P/S PUMP, TAG CODE F Should be a tag on the back of your PS pump.
