Stop lusting after the 1/4 panels Mike... This is not a parts car!
LOL! Nah, I'd just love to see another Eliminator :-)

Mike, do you have any of this ones history?
I don't know the VIN for it, and it doesn't look familiar from the pics. I took a quick look through my files but I didn't see any that appear to match up.

By vin it's at least not a Boss, but could still be an Eliminator.

0F91M513485 is still an Eliminator, just an M code, 4 speed with ac and manual brakes and steering.
It was originally sold out of GA and was purchased in Odessa, TX in 1975 by the "current" owner.

"What's under the hood?" It was NEVER a regular 302, always a BOSS 302.

It's still an Eliminator, and it has a 4 speed. Don, now you need to show us the other one. I bet it has a big chunk of Cast Iron under the hood that will make this one a driver.

The seller included 4 351 4v engines. One was a BOSS 351 from a Mustang thus some of the confusion on the phone when his wife was giving me the sales pitch. I am going to clean up the eliminator and make it as complete as possible and then put it up on eBay

Very cool!

You'll have to check the B1 engine for a VIN stamp. I'll send Rick Ybarra your direction. He maintains the Boss 351 Registry.
