Always love to see stats too! Not sure if we talked about this already or not...

For 1970 Cougar Standard Hardtops ...
458 with the 428CJ engine... 374 of them were Eliminators = 84 non-Eliminator standard hardtop Cougars w/ 428CJ
243 with C6 Automatic transmission... 192 of them were Eliminators = 51 non-Eliminator standard hardtop Cougars w/ 428CJ/C6 Auto.
43 of them painted Competition Yellow... 41 of them were Eliminators = 2 non-Eliminator standard hardtop Cougars w/ 428CJ/C6/Comp Yellow.
17 had Black Standard bucket seats... 16 of them were Eliminators...

= 1 non-Eliminator standard hardtop Cougar with 428CJ / C6 automatic / Competition Yellow / Black Standard Interior.

Time for a small update. I got the old small block C-6 out before Christmas. I started removing the wiring for the car, and went overboard. I removed nearly all of it. I still have a couple running down the passengers side rocker. One being the rear seat speaker wiring. To bad iti had been butchered at the package tray. I then removed the lower dash, brake pedal hanger(with a clutch pedal on it) The A/C box and most of the vacuum lines. I filled up 4 moving boxes with the parts. Even though the wiring is butchered I am holding on to it for now. Who knows, the one in my parts car may need some help that this may render pars for.

I'll remove the rest of the steering column when I get in to the engine compartment some more.

I have a lot more work to do in the engine compartment, but parts are getting removed.

It looks like somebody has painted the area on the P/S frame rail Red tnen Silver. The rest looks like it was painted Silver then back to Black.

I have been working part time for some friends. Last week I put this project car back together. It need a total restoration. But it is a legit L-78 65 GM Plastic car.

It sounds nasty, I have only moved it out of the shop and back in. I think this will be for sale soon. My friends put out a request for help in December. I responded and have been playing around with their cars as well as mine. It is kind of fun not needing the money but going to work anyway. It is helping me stay off the computer too.
More later.
Oh I almost forgot, when I took apart the A/C unit I found a Lady's Omega watch in it.

It may have been sitting on top of the dash and fall down through the defroster ductwork. But is is hard to say.

I also may have more history information. I won't revile that until I can verify it. I got that info from a guy up near you.

I was back at it yesterday. I hope to get more done this afternoon as well. I started with removing the drivers side seat riser so I ca get on to replacing the floor pan. What a mess! Look at that rust!

When I looked at the car it has about 2 inches of water sitting in it, from a leaky rear window seal. And it took its toll on the floors. I know this going in. If this were a "H" code car I would not have planned to repair this. But being a rare "Q" code... The seat riser was bad as I suspected. I have another set that I will most likely use.

I set the new floor panel in the car to see how it would look.


I then moved on to the engine compartment. I removed more parts, Master cylinder and booster, frame mounts, battery tray, vacuum lines and the transmission cooler lines. I them gave it a washing. It will need a bunch more work down low before I start removing all the layers of paint. I think this is about the ugliest engine compartment I have ever done.
A couple before cleaning shots.



A couple after cleaning shots.




It's going to be a long slow slog on this beast. But it's underway...

I spent a few hours back on this car today. I ordered an export brace for it and thought it might be a good idea to test fit it. So I dug out the bolts for the shock caps and found a set of cowl end bolts and it went on fairly easily. I may end up needing to place the car on jack stands when I do the final install.


Next as I was going to start cutting out the floor on the driver's side, I cut out the drive shaft loop. I thought as I'm working by myself at this time and I'm replacing both floors I would just hack it out.


I then moved on to slicing and dicing the rusted floor out.




There is still a lot of trimming to do. Next time I work on it I'll set the new floor pan back in place and do some marking. Then decided how much more trimming I'll do. I also need to get the tank for my welder refilled.

More as it happens.
