1969 Cougar Eliminator Production Stats

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.

1969 Cougar Eliminator Production Stats

Post by Mike_B_SVT »

Hey Gang,

I decided to post up the '69 Eliminator production numbers in thier own thread instead of including it in the "Looking for Elite Marti Reports" thread because I think it will be easier for folks to find this way. I'll most likely move the '70 numbers to thier own thread when time permits.

If you have an Elite Marti Report for your Cougar Eliminator please consider sharing the production breakdown information so that we can better populate the database. Feel free to post your information here, or in the "Looking for Elite Marti Reports" thread, or PM me, or email me directly at mbanks -at- nikon -dotcom. If you are concerned about your VIN number you can leave it out or block it out your picture.

Thanks!
Mike B.

Mike, looks interesting. Is there any way to find out how many were shipped to Canada? I was told at the time I bought mine that Canada would only get 10% of production, being about 225. Any way to verify that?
Thanks.

Hi Harry, I think to get those numbers you would have to take it up with Mr. Marti. I know that he provides a research service, and since he has ALL the info he should be able to find out how many went to Canada.

Hi Mike , Do you still need more Marti reports. Mine's a deluxe report. I don't know how to post it on here but I could scan it and email it to you.

Thanks
