Sorry about your cousin. It appears he had a nice collection of Cougars, 2 Boss 302 Eliminators and a 351 4V Eliminator. There also seems to be one VIN missing from the list too if there are 9. Were you not able to read the first two digits of the VIN on that last one? Looking forward to seeing some pictures. You might want to go here and order basic Marti Reports for each of them so you will know the basic details about how they came off the production line. http://www.martiauto.com/martireports.cfm

I grew up mostly on and around the Fort Knox area, but live in Texas now.

I think it would be a good idea to have an appraiser come look at the collection. Or someone that knows Cougars at the least. There may be someone from this group that may have the time to come out and look them over. The Eliminators are worth more then the others, the Boss 302 cars are worth more even if missing the correct power train. Though that drops the value a bunch. A good auto appraiser could give you appointment sales values, they usually give insurance values that are higher then sales values. Knowing the over all condition of each car is really needed to ascertain true values. IE a rusted out Boss 302 missing it's power train may be worth less then a base 351 2V in near mint condition.
Good luck with this. I know several good people have already reached out to you from here.

So, did anyone hear anything back from Brian?

*Sorry ~ I guess the seller's name is Scott! He must have been saying thanks to Brian Carpenter, and I misunderstood.

Well, I had a tentative appointment set for tomorrow, Saturday, 4-21 to meet with Scott... key word being had. Scott informed me last evening that his Cousin's Widow, had decided to accept a $25K cash offer from a previous looker. During that conversation, Scott also passed along that She was ready to sell and move forward with the process. Scott also said that the buyer has (3) male Grandson's and plans to restore (3) of the Cougars as family projects. And, that some donor parts might be used from the other cars for those restoration efforts.
Scott is a straight-up guy. :)

Maybe the new owner of this collection will chime in soon...

I looked at the Cougars before they sold. I wasn't interested in all on them. I just wanted the 70 Boss Eliminator. They were all serious project cars except for one.

Any pictures or other details on the Eliminators? Would be nice to get these thoroughly documented, if possible.

70 Boss Eliminator competition orange although very nice condition with good paint and was missing the Boss drive train. Damage all down the passenger side as he hit the whole side of the car with some other piece of equipment while moving things around in the barn. Worst damage was to the quarter panel door latch area. All of it was repairable.
The 70 Eliminator 351 with the sun roof had lots of rust issues to the bottom side and around the wheel house arches. One of the other Cougars would need sacrificed to save this one. Competition gold with white interior. Would be a nice looking Eliminator once restored. Most Cougars had the engine out and pieces were loose. I think the agreed on price was good for both seller and buyer. A lot of labor to move everything and you only had a month to do it.

No pictures were taken.
