Competition Green 428CJ Eliminator at Leake Auction January in Scottsdale AZ

For two years the Eliminator roamed the streets looking for prey. Although you could get an engine available from Mercury in the Eliminator, the Cobra Jet 428 and Super Cobra Jet 428 were common under the hood. This was also the only Cougar to get the Boss 302. The Eliminator Registry is maintained by Dave Wyrwas.

The underside is odd. Lots of yellow and green paint where it shouldn't be. Otherwise seems decent enough.
