Well, nevermind...the shop that's doing bodywork/paint and final assembly wasn't interested in actively completing the project...so no more unveiling. Looks like I'll find a good debut show for next year. :wall: :thumbdown: :oops: :evil: :angryfire:
That stinks :-/

Hey all, I'm looking for the Eliminator rear spoiler stripe from the '70 MY. I don't want to buy a complete stripe kit when all I need is that single piece. Anybody have one they're willing to part with?
I believe WCCC sells them individually.

Re: Boss 429 Cougars - Production Vehicle, or not?

Duly noted. I don't have a dog in anyone else's hunt for answers to questions about their Eliminators. But I know I want answers to my questions, so I consider it a courtesy to answer the questions that others have when I'm able to. I appreciate your input. I don't have a dog in that hunt. Who cares...

Re: Boss 429 Cougars - Production Vehicle, or not?

Well it seems there obviously was a change of plans at Mercury since they were primarily match raced with SOHC 427 engines. I think for sure it is silly to argue whether they are production or prototype - I for one don't care if you feel some need to place them in either category. I just think they...

Re: Boss 429 Cougars - Production Vehicle, or not?

No. You're saying Boss 429 Mustangs were given to racers for race / promo use. I'm saying street versions of those promo / race cars were available to the public. That's not the case for the B9 Cougars. Also, looking at the Memos. I don't think the Boss 429 Cougars actually were street legal - or at...

Re: Boss 429 Cougars - Production Vehicle, or not?

But vehicles identical to those race vehicles were available for public consumption. No Boss 429 Cougars were made available to public. Several of the Boss 429 Mustangs were also given to racers for promotional use. Does that make them not production vehicles? If a Boss 429 Mustang is or isn't then ...

Re: Front seat foam formers

Yeah, mine did / do the same thing. I need to replace the seat foam as well. My only concern is when I put the fresh pad inside the old skin and then sit on it, is that going to cause all the 50 year old stitching to pop >.<

Re: Boss 429 Cougars - Production Vehicle, or not?

If a Boss 429 Mustang is or isn't then the Cougar Boss 429 is or isn't. All of them started life as 428 CJ cars and all of them were converted at Kar Kraft in Brighton, MI. They made a lot more Boss 9 Mustangs but the process was identical and the Boss 9 Cougars, Like the Boss 9 Mustangs, had smog ...
