Simple Eliminator Question

For two years the Eliminator roamed the streets looking for prey. Although you could get an engine available from Mercury in the Eliminator, the Cobra Jet 428 and Super Cobra Jet 428 were common under the hood. This was also the only Cougar to get the Boss 302.

No, Eliminators were introduced in April of 1969, by which point all Cougar production through the end of model year 1973 was done at Dearborn. IIRC San Jose Cougar production ceased in November 1968.

Thanks - That is what I thought but wanted to double check.
