Up for sale is a 1970 Cougar Eliminator project car. It is am M code 351C 4 bbl with an automatic FMX transmission. It does not have many options other than power steering and a center console. Originally was a manual brake car. but previous owner converted to front disc brakes. Car comes with a Marti report and an Eminger invoice that verifies it as an Eliminator. It is a southern car with a 21 DSO(Atlanta). I have owned this car for over 10 years and have been restoring and collecting parts for it for as long. I have bought three cars just for parts to contribute to this one. There is way to much info to put down in this small space. so call me with any questions (256) 282-4055.

Current State:

Car is a rolling chassis. with engine and transmission removed. quarter windows and back glass removed. and interior removed. Recently had a professional replace floor pans. A lot of the  parts have been restored and are in boxes. Car does have new upper and lower control arms and spring perches. Some of the parts worth noting are:

   -- rechromed bumpers front and rear with restored bumper brackets

   -- rechromed rear turn signal assemblies with restored lenses

   -- rechromed quarter window moldings

   -- rebuilt dash. upper and lower. nbsp;with all camera case trim present. new headlight switch. nice dashpad. correct working am radio w/ new surround bezel

   -- restored turn signal assemblies

   -- restored side marker assemblies

   -- correct 70 sport mirrors. right and left

   -- nice decklid trim and blackout stripe kit

   -- nice. possibly NOS. exterior door handle assemblies

   -- nice center console

   -- new KYB shocks front and rear

   --- all Eliminator correct parts. camera case dash. hood scoop. rear spoiler with support brackets. walking cat fuel door. etc


Driveline:

Original engine and transmission were gone when I bought the car. Does have a 351C and FMX that have supposedly been rebuilt and have 3000 miles on them. but can not document. Engine has 2bbl heads on it now. but I have a rebuilt set of closed chamber heads and factory cast iron intake to go with it. Exhaust manifolds have been blasted and painted with Eastwood cast iron high temp paint and heat cured. Have a nice rebuilt automatic shifter with lock out rod. I do not have the automatic kick down rod. Driveshaft has yet to be touched. but is there. Rear end is a 3. 25 open . if it is the same it is built with. Have not done anything to the rear axle. I do have the correct air cleaner. heat shield and S tube. It presently has a set of 69 GT wheels on it.

Sheet metal:

Have gone through three different cats and picked the best sheet metal for the Eliminator. Very nice doors and fenders and decklid. and hood. The right rear quarter has a wave near the body line and was recommended it be replaced. The left quarter has some filler in front of the wheel well from previous damage. I have a right rear quarter that comes with the car. Floor pans have been replaced. Torque boxes. trunk drop-offs. aprons. rockers. owl. roof. frame rails. shock towers. all are solid. The left torque box does have one small piece of the vertical area. where the parking brake cable goes through. that has some rust. but structurally solid. The battery apron was replaced by previous owner. Has nice stone shield. front and rear valance.

Interior:

Car originally came with standard black interior. I do have a used set of standard door panels and rear quarter panels. They are far from perfect. but not junk either. Nice center console. No carpet. headliner or weatherstrip. I do have repop sail panels and package tray. Seat belts are all there. but need restoring. Seats upholstery is older. possibly original. but is ok without any rips or tears.

Parts I know that will be needed that I do not have:

---- Carpet. weatherstripping. brake lines(may have some used ones). uel lines. nuts and bolts and various hardware. exhaust system with h pipe. etc.

Everything Else;

There is a lot that I have not mentioned. not on purpose. but because there is so much information in my brain on this car because I have owned it so long. If you have any interest in this vehicle. it would be best to call me at (256)282-4055. Best time to call would be during the day. 8-5. It is easier for me to tell you about the car than to type about it. This car is registered in Alabama. where there are no titles on vehicles prior to 1975. This car does not have a title. Buyer will receive a written bill of sale and a copy of the registration. Car to be picked up in Anniston. Alabama in a reasonable amount of time. no marathons. Prefer that potential buyer preview car in person. if at all possible.
