Assembly after paint.

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.

Good looking job, and it is fun at this point, because everything added makes it gooder and gooder.

Very nice looking paint, enjoy! I have not heard of spoiler delete before. I’m not too far behind you on my 69 XR7.

Looking good! Do you know what your paint mixture was? I'm working on my yellow '69 and am having a hard time getting the hue correct.

I'm curious about the picture you posted, I thought that Eliminators had a walking Cougar on the gas filler door. Was this not the case in '69 or was the walking Cougar logo only used on '70 Eliminators?

The Mercury crest was correct for 69 Eliminators. The walking cat was for 70 only.
