0F91G512239 Unrestored Comp Blue/Black

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.

Does it have a "Caution FAN" sticker? :)
I'd like to see some up close photos of bracket bolts such as the horn mounting... heads out towards the nose or inwards towards the firewall?

Bracket bolts--Horn mounting, shock cover and other bolts were mounted according to the installer. If right handed on passenger side of car, mounted with nuts on inside, if left handed, nuts on outside etc. There is no protocol with the Mustang club of America because there was none at the factory. Been there, done that.

PS---No CAUTION FAN sticker. They were not used at the factory.

Well done Dave. That is a great Cougar. It is special to see one in this type of condition in photos but even better to see it in the videos. Thanks for sharing and enjoy your latest Cougar addition.

Got my MCACN email tonight, with Dave's Eliminator prominently featured! Are you going to take the car through thier Vintage Certification program? That would be so awesome to have a video of that (hint hint)!

Here are the mufflers on the 10/13/1969 built B2 Eliminator. Things have been a little hectic lately but I will be adding more pictures and scans of the paperwork. I do plan to have the car at the East Coast Cougar Nationals next month as well as in Chicago in November.

The original owner had two build sheets that came with the car. I do not know where they were found. They are both tractor feed pages but they are different in that one is ~ 8 x 8 inches and one is ~ 8 x 11 inches. The only differences in what is on the pages is the rotation numbers. The 8 x 8 is rotation number 0639 which is also written on the radiator support and the other one is rotation number 0624. The rotation number on the buck tag is 503, so we know that there were at least 3 different rotation numbers assigned to this vehicle during production.

The spare tire appears to have never been removed. As this car was built in October of 1969, it has what are commonly called the "no size" tire. The actual size of the tire "F70-14" is not called out in raised white letters. The belief is that the "sized" tires were not manufactured until January of 1970. There are 4 red paint daubs on the back of the tire as well as an inked arrow to the weight. On the front side there were two small squares of rubber that kept the tire from rubbing against the rivets on the jack, but stayed on the tire when I removed it as can be seen by the "Goodyear" lettering.

That is cool! I'm pretty sure I've seen those little blocks of rubber drifting around in trunks before. Always thought they were just stray junk. Probably came loose the first time the tires were pulled out and then ended up down in the nooks and crannies.

Also cool to see how they cut the hole in the trunk mat to accomodate the mounting bracket location for the staggered shock cars. My mat is pretty beat up, so it is nice seeing how it is supposed to / used to look :-)

Thanks for the great detail pics and info Dave!

*Also nice to see exactly what sort of Jack I should have in the trunk, since mine was built within days of yours :-)
Did you find any date or PN stamps on your Jack? Or handle?

While at MCACN the car was filmed by Lou Costabile of "My Car Story". It has been posted on You Tube.
