0f91q509919 Competition Yellow/Black Interior

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.

I purchased the vehicle in 1970 so that would be the 10-26-70 date. The invoice adjustment would have been the repossession by the bank. My pay was screwed up in the USAF and I went a couple of months with no paycheck. I was sure it was November of 1971 that it was repo-ed; I may have been wrong or it may be the date that the dealership re-sold it to the second owner who eventually parked it in his garage. The second owner kept it until he died where the third owner bought it from the estate sale in 2016 or 2017. I bought it from 3rd owner in 2019 and started the motor for the first time in about 35 years (72# oil pressure, no smoke or blow-by, 18 inches of vacuum, nice little rumble). BTW, I put water into the radiator in about April of 2019 and it has not been started since and there are still no water leaks.
