What do you say when you find one of the most beautiful cars in the world...& then you realize it's just a Cougar...a Cougar you say ??? Yes...but not just any Cougar...! This magnificent speciman of a Muscle Car is one of the rarest cars to exist...PERIOD ! The Cougar Eliminator was produced in 1969 & 1970. It was the red headed stepchild when compared to it's cousins...the Boss 302 or even the Mach I,which were far more popular. Completed on 12/10/69 & sold thru Fuquay Motor Co. from Fuquay Springs, North Carolina, this example is finished in Competition Blue (essentally Grabber Blue) w/a White Std.interior.

It also includes the original Build Sheet (now quite faded & falling apart). It has a deluxe Marti Report & a copy of the factory invoice. It has had a nut & bolt complete restoration just a few years back...it still looks new ! This 1970 Cougar Eliminator is one of the rarest cars to have been manufactured during the last year of the pure 1/4 mile burnin Muscle Cars. It truely is a perfect running & driving experience to go along w/it's near perfect restoration.It will surely prove to be an excellent investment for the picky collector. Imagine this "Pony Car" in your stable...it is for sure going to be a fun investment !
