Cougars at Barrett-Jackson 2013: Featuring KTL's 1970 SCJ Eliminator
We went back to Scottsdale this January to witness the sale of Joe Valenti's 1970 Mercury Cougar Eliminator, with a 428 Super Cobra Jet drivetrain and the Drag Pak option. This rare car was meticulously concours restored over the course of 5 years by the renowned Cougar restoration shop KTL Restorations ( http://www.ktlrestorations.com ) in VA. A factor that made this auction even more interesting was the presence of another 1970 Eliminator, in the same Competition Blue color, and also with a 428 Cobra Jet engine (not Super) and also restored by a reputable hot rod shop. This car was not restored to the same "concours" level that Joe's car was, but it was still beautifully restored, and we expected to see it bring close to six figures. What we saw unfold that weekend in January was an interesting and sobering experience. These two cars, which would seem nearly identical to the untrained bystander, sold for vastly different prices. There is a lot to be said for the day and time that a car gets sold, as well as the quality of the restoration. But we were still very surprised by the results. This video puts you in the middle of the action to experience Barrett-Jackson with us. Enjoy! Need parts for your 67-73 Cougar?

133120 / 1970 Mercury Cougar Eliminator Boss 302
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/9fpv8je Ready for a different kind of pony car? Take a close look at this pristine 1970 Mercury Cougar Eliminator. Fresh out of a comprehensive restoration, this cat has and aggressive demeanor and plenty of power to back it up. Restored to factory specifications, the body panels are straight in true in every way. A coat of Ford's code N Pastel Blue covers the body, accented by the black body-length stripes courtesy of the Eliminator package. While the color may look white, there is a subtle blue tint that is guaranteed to make this Mercury stand out in the crowd. Panel fitment is also far superior to anything that left Ford's Dearborn plant in 1970. Other pieces of the Eliminator package include a front chin spoiler, blacked-out grilled, hood scoop, an air foil wing and discrete "Eliminator" decals. The glass appears to be original as does the stainless trim around it but both are in excellent condition overall. With its race-friendly look, this is very clearly no common Cougar. Under the hood, a familiar 290hp Boss 302 V8 provides more than enough motivation to push this cat around town. From the properly decaled single snorkel air cleaner to the date-code correct block, everything about the powerplant looks as it did when it left the factory. The engine fires immediately, idles well and has a menacing snarl to warn other drivers exactly what is beside. Beneath the car, a nicely detailed undercarriage consists of a factory chassis with factory-correct overspray gracing the rock solid floor fans. In the center, a Hurst-equipped Toploader 4-speed takes care of gear selection while a nodular Ford nine-inch differential with 3.91 gears puts the power the road. Steering is manual but braking is power assisted with discs in the front and drums out back. The chassis meets the road through Goodyear Polyglas tires wrapped around steel wheels topped with dog-dish hubcaps and chrome beauty rings. Between the doors, a Medium Blue interior is simple, comfortable and functional. The hi-back bucket seats are wrapped in Comfortweave vinyl and face a factory dashboard that houses the original instrumentation plus climate controls and an AM/FM stereo. With the exception of the aluminum Hurst shift handle, there are no frills to be found here. Behind the rear seat, the trunk features a correct mat, jack and spare tire. Documentation for this Cougar is strong with an original build sheet, dealer invoice and several records that spell out the car's full history. There is also a Marti Report that covers everything down to production dates. In this form, it's easy to imagine the Cougar as less of a sibling and more of a rival to the Mustang. With the Boss 302 and slick shifting Toploader, this cat offers all the fun in a unique shell. Call, click or visit http://rkmotorscharlotte.com for more information on this amazing Mercury.

Mercury Cougar - American Muscle Car
An excellent TV show featuring the classic Mercury Cougar. They cover all the classic years, and talk about all the different engines and option packages you could get. Only a couple minor mistakes (they say the that XR-7 package included a 4-speed stick, then show an automatic shifter in one... derrr) but overall a very nice overview of these cars.
