The Cougar Eliminator has become a hot collectible muscle car. Only made in 1969 & 1970, these Eliminator Cougars had both looks and power to back up the name. For 1969 the Eliminator exterior package included one of 4 special paint colors, blacked out grille, driver's side "racing style" mirror, front and rear spoilers, hood scoop, styled steel wheels, rocker trim and body stripes with "ELIMINATOR" text.

The interior was also upgraded including hi-back bucket seats, 6,000 RPM tachometer, and other custom trim. Under the hood engine choices included a Boss 302, 351-4V, 390-4V or 428 CJ & SCJ.
This particular Eliminator has some serious rust issues. The rear half looks like it could crumble to dust any minute. Check out the daylight showing through the rear quarter panels at the trunk! Several other spots are totally rusted through, which means there's a ton more rust that you're not seeing.

It's a desirable Cougar for sure, but it needs a whole new body.

    This is 9F91S569962 as seen in Sept 2011. It is 1 of 4 Eliminators built with a 390-4V and 3-speed manual transmission in 1969.

    It is believed to have been rebodied due to the extensive rust, and converted to a 4-speed in 2013, after changing hands several times.
