The only other Marti Report for an 1969 XR7 HT SCJ stated that it was 1 of 53 for Drag Pack.
I wonder if that number (53) is for both Q-code and R-code XR-7 HT SCJ's. Info I have indicates that 48 were Ram-Air SCJ 1969 Cougar XR-7 2-door hardtops - 33 with 4-speed / 15 with Automatic.
I don't have much info on the Q-codes or Standards though, beyond the Eliminator stats.

*By the way, you REALLY need to get on the previous owner about that folder of documents! That is incredible history and it is a shame that it was seperated from the car!

Got to love a low number car either way.
Mike, I contacted the previous owner after I bought the car and his reply via email was, "it went with the car". That was back in late 2015. I recently befriended him again and he told me he would look for it and that his wife was the best person to contact about finding it. I sent her a nice gift in the mail with a lovely note asking her if she could try and locate the "file" that had all the info in it. At that point I didn't realize the info was in a binder. I may give it one more try and see if she can look for a binder instead of a file.
I also was recently in touch with the the guy that did the appraisal on the car for the previous owner and he knows everyone who's hands it went through to get to me here in Boston. He said he would give those folks a call to see if by chance they might have it. I's a long shot, but worth the effort.

Well hopefully it will turn up! Looks / sounds like some cool docs - and an antique trophy! Awesome stuff :-)

Scott,
just got the most recent Marti Report: looks like it is one of 53.
Nice job ordering this car Tommy.

Great car. Scott let me drive it, so I know the power it has! If it was me, I would slowly start to put the car back to factory stock, as that is where the most $$ is. Add the rocker moldings, correct antenna, Non-AC lower dash, etc. Some items from 1970 are better however, and I would keep those, like the 4 speed shifter and bolt in window glass. Good luck with the sale, it should sell quickly as it is a high quality car!

428Cougarguy,
thanks so much for your input. I was tempted to put the car back to factory stock. I have the correct lower dash and some old rocker moldings, but I'd prefer to sell the car as it is and let the next owner make those changes if so desired. The car needs a good home, perhaps where it is warm year round and can be driven a lot more than I have. I just posted the for sale ad on here today if you have not seen it yet.
Thanks again for your verification of an awesome Cougar,
Joe B.
