69 hertz eliminator

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.

It looks beautiful. As does your garage space.

Are you able to write your story for ATSOTC magazine. It would be fantastic to hear all about your car and journey with your dad to its final restoration.

Please email details and photos to editor@CougarClub.org
