competition handling sway bar

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.

Just purchased an 7/8" competition sway bar for my 69 Eliminator - 390 GT. the sway bar has an green spot on it. does anyone know what this looked like originally? I thought it was only one spot/stripe, but while cleaning this up with my wire brush, I found two green spots. these of course are 80 years old. Does anyone know what this looked like originally?

If it is a true competition sway bar, it should have one Green and one Yellow brush swipes.

Granted this Competition handling front bar is for a 1971, but the paint daubs are the same colors. Top bar is a standard 71 bar.
