Re: Premium on Eliminators - worth it?

The thing is, if you started with a real unrestored 351 Eliminator the unrestored price is only slightly higher than a standard Cougar. When the car is finished it will have cost exactly the same as a standard Cougar converted to an Eliminator clone. The difference being a real one will be worth mo...

Re: Eliminators on the Market (August 2018)

IMO, not at the price he is asking. Most of those mods are not visible, so wouldn't count against you if you prefer a "Stock" appearance. The rear end would be a common change / upgrade, and not visible. The radiator could be easily changed out for a factory appearing radiator - or even a recored or...

Re: Best way to paint 70 Elim center grille

When I did mine I masked off the entire flat part around the cat. That "panel" was originally a anodized(?) black, but many have faded away to bare metal over the years. I believe you can buy a replacement for just that little panel behind the cat. Then you have to cut off the cat from the inside to...

Re: Hanging wire goes where ??????????????

Hmmm... it COULD be for the key buzzer. Mine used a black wire that was routed through the turn signal switch harness sleeve. From there it should have a pin in turn signal switch connector. If that's the wire.

Re: Distributor ID help... is this what I think it is?

Your car is what I would call "early" and it should have the C70F 12127-F. Last one I saw sold for $1500. Not easy to find, and when you do find one you better be ready to pay up. Wow. When I bought my CJ/4-speed distributor a few years back it cost me about $750 (unrestored), then another $450 or ...
