Re: 1970 Cougar Eliminator Production Stats

So does a 70 Eliminator 428 CJ, non drag-pak 4-speed count as 1 of 6 or 1 of Unknown? Competition Yellow. Hi Chuck, Currently I have data that indicates... 39 Eliminators built in 1970 with the 428CJ and 4-speed that were painted Competition Yellow. Unfortunately I don't have any data that indicate...

Re: Assembly after paint.

Mike-Being the Eliminator registrar ... I want to clarify that I am NOT the Eliminator Registrar. I just help gather data and track cars for the CCOA and Eliminator Registry. Dave Wyrwas (70b302cat) is the Eliminator Registrar. Re: Orange Eliminator in above picture. Mike-Being the Eliminator regis...

Unless stated otherwise, jack stands are sold in pairs and given a weight rating based on what the pair of them can support together. For example, a pair of 2-ton jack stands are rated for loads up to 1 ton per stand.
That is good to know! ...and quite deceptive >.<

Re: 9F91M571265 window sticker on eBay

Thanks for posting that here! Great place for it, IMO! I saw it a few days ago and added it to my files, as well as sending the info to Dave & Phil, but didn't think to add it here. D'oh! I'll add some more info for any future searchers... 9F91M571265 1969 Eliminator Bright Blue Metallic / 351W-4V /...

Re: Assembly after paint.

Update? How do you know it was a spoiler delete car - is that called out on the Marti report or window sticker? The 6-digit DSO: 528020 - For 1969 the "8020" portion was the order code for "Rear Spoiler Not Installed" (aka "Rear Spoiler Delete"). For 1970 the code appears to have been changed to "8...

Re: Harbor Freight - floor jack and stands

I'm using their heavy duty jack stands with no problems yet (knock on wood). My HF floor jack is about ready to be retired though, after only a few years of use. I think that if you consider the 2 ton jack stands, and you use 1 at each corner of the car, you are only putting ~ what, maybe 1 ton on e...

Re: 1970 fixed column turn signal switch

These have been upgraded to brass rivets. In the past they were zinc and that caused problems. https://secure.cougarpartscatalog.com/sm44f.html?attribs=79 ...now if they would just change that giant clunky Emergency Flasher knob. Although I guess you COULD cut the knob at the shaft and graft on an ...

Re: What's it worth...

I'll jump in and say $5k. Lets say as a non-matching, #2 car, it would be worth... $50-60k. You'll need $15k in drivetrain components, give or take. Maybe closer to $20k when you have it all restored / refurbished? Figure $20k in body / paint. Interior $5k. Other incidentals and unforseen stuff $5-1...

Re: 1970 Front License Plate Bracket

Hmm... with a little cleanup it might fit in nicely with the *cough*cough* "patina" of my '70... I just dont think I can bring myself to buy yet another crusty front bumper bracket, LOL!

Definitely a hard piece to find though!
