Thanks Neal!

For a minute I thought this was the Marti for the NJ window sticker car. Oops!

That Eliminator is loaded. Only mod I would add is a 3.50 posi. 8K or best offer on Ebay, just checked and it appears to be sold. Hope it went to a good home and someone will restore it.

Steve O, I would add the Decor Interior, along with that 3L50 set of gears.
I think that this is the first time I have ever noticed "Rim blow deluxe steering wheel" as a stand alone option.
Must be because of the Standard Base interior, since those came with the two spoke wheel.

It IS an oddity! iirc, it has an Export DSO (hence the shipping to NJ). So possibly ordered by a GI either through a CA dealership, or to take delivery in CA? Would be interesting to learn more about the history.

Supposed to be a 2 (or 3 now) owner car, so contact with the original owner should not be too difficult (if he is still with us).

Can't wait to hear more about it Neal!

More info when I have it.

One of the interesting things on the is it sole new in New Jersey, but has the California emissions package on it.
I was out at Mainly Muscle cars again today. I had a part they needed. So I got another look at this Eliminator today. They have detailed it up nicely. New magnum 500's. They also had a new windshield installed after I tool a couple pictures of it. I tell you what, a few hours with a buffer really made the paint pop. They still have a few things they want to do to it but may have a sale already. Someone is coming over tomorrow to look at it. Here are sone before and after pictures.

I didn't take any rear shots as the tail lights are not back on. They are being redone. I think this will make someone a sweet driver. Oh and the color shift is due to lighting and using a cell phone.

Wish I could justify pulling the trigger on it. She'll need some work still. But will be a nice driver.

I believe it ended up selling via eBay with the $8k buy now.

That 69 Boss E Cat at Mecum probably sold in the right range. Looking at it in detail lots of little things so-so on execution and multiple high $$ parts not there. Cloudy clock lens, wrong snorkle, 70 air cleaner, and non Ford distributor, that's what we can see. Also poor presentation in the pix dirty areas. So if then can't be trouble to clean up for the photo shoot, who knows what else is been done half-assed.
