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.
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!

An excellent TV show featuring the classic Mercury Cougar. They cover all
the classic years, and talk about all the different engines and option

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.

Front Suspension & Chassis Upgrades - '68 Cougar / Mustang
In this video, we show some of the ways you can easily stiffen your car's
chassis and upgrade your front suspension. Using Andrew's '68 Cougar as a
guinea pig, we bolt on, and weld on, some simple parts that will make a big
difference in reducing the torsional flex that these front ends are prone
to, as well as improving the integrity of the shock towers.

133216 / 1970 Chevrolet Nova SS
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/8cswasv
It's rare to enough to see a stock spec Nova, let alone one this sharp.
With big block power and a Muncie 4-speed, this Nova offers a highly
authentic driving experience without the overhanging fear of wrecking a
priceless investment. If you're looking for a different kind of muscle car,
this 1970 Nova SS might be the perfect option for your garage.
While this one left the Willow Run assembly plant with a Green Mist
exterior and a green interior, the restorer mercifully updated the
combination to Astro Blue with a black interior. Today, the car presents
incredibly well and turns heads wherever it goes. Sight the body from any
angle and you'll find a smooth wave-free exterior casting nearly perfect
reflections thanks to the slick base/clear paintwork.
Chevrolet did a particularly good job designing tasteful ornamentation for
these Novas and every bit of it remains intact on this '70. From the SS
grille to the "Hurst-equipped" emblem on the decklid, the badges and
brightwork look showroom fresh as does the glass. Combined with the glossy
paintwork, this is one clean Nova.
Open this SS hood and you'll find the desirable 396 cubic inch big block in
full 375hp L78 trim. Though not original to the car, the block sports a
correct 3969854 casting number with a March 29th, 1970 date code to further
authenticity. With a factory appearance right down to the GM reproduction
hoses, everything about this big block looks and feels right. Breathing
through cast iron manifolds in an OEM style dual Exhaust system, the sound is fantastic.
Peer underneath and you'll find a well detailed undercarriage with correct
finishes and markings all the way around. At the center, a Muncie M21
four-speed manual transmission works in concert with the big block to
provide an authentic driving experience. A GM 12-bolt with 3.07 gears puts
the power to pavement. Around the drivetrain, a rebuilt factory suspension
consisting of double A-arms up front and parallel leafs out back presents
well with recreated chassis inspection markings. Steering is manual by
braking is power-assisted with discs up front and drums out back. Goodyear
F70-14's wrapped around SS Rally wheels complete the package.
Between the doors, a simply but functional interior provides all the
essentials. Seating is provided by a nicely recovered black vinyl bench
with simple black door panels featuring a wood applique strip at either
side. From the driver's seat, a showroom quality dashboard places nothing
more than a speedometer and fuel gauge in the cluster. At either side of
the cluster, there are controls for items like the ventilation system, push
button AM radio and lights. An aluminum three-spoke sport steering wheel
with a red, white and blue Chevrolet horn button tops the lockable steering
Documentation for this car includes copies of the original window sticker
as well as a brief spec page that provides an overview of the car's key
This 1970 Nova is a great way to get legendary GM Performance in a package
that won't break the bank. Ready to hit the streets sideways? Call, click

Is It Numbers Matching? - Cougar by the Numbers
In this video we delve into the complex topic of decoding tags, date codes,
and other numbers to check if your classic Ford / Mercury is "numbers
matching," using Don's newly acquired '69 Mercury Cougar XR7 428 Cobra Jet
convertible as an example. While we haven't covered the subject 100% in
this video (to keep it concise) we think this covers most of the major
components and gives you the knowledge you need to figure out what your
numbers mean. As mentioned in the video, we highly recommend Marti Auto
Works, especially his Tagbook, which made this video possible. Visit him

133288 / 1971 Ford Torino Cobra
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/beaojvg
If you're in the market for a special Ford that's stacked with a top option
drivetrain, this amazing Torino Sportsroof is your next car!
This buff Torino popped out of Ford's hot Atlanta factory on September 2nd
of 1970 in the midst of the great American performance wars. After spending
a short time as top notch showroom candy at Thompson Motors in Hampton,
Virginia, it began a long life of solid maintenance and back roads workout
routines. And today, covered in a fresh coat of correct Grabber Blue paint,
it sits as the beneficiary of a thorough frame-up restoration that was
conducted on solid, all-Ford bones.
Lift the car's war painted hood and you'll find a date-correct D1VE 429
Cobra Jet V8 which has been fully detailed to a better-than-factory
appearance. While Ford brass rated these big engines at 370 horses for the
sake of appeasing whiny insurance agents, they probably had a hard time
keeping a straight face. That's because real world numbers were closer to
allowing this sizeable car 13-second quarter mile passes with some basic
shade tree tuning. At full throttle, the flapper valve opens, drawing cool
air through a correctly decaled ram air induction system into to a large
Holley four-barrel carburetor. Below that carburetor, finned aluminum valve
covers hang at the sides of an original cast iron intake which holds a
correct Autolite coil next to a traditional points distributor and fresh
suppression cables. The smooth mill breathes through cast iron manifolds
which exhale into a true dual Exhaust
system. And all the while a correctly decaled radiator cycles water through
reproduction Autolite hoses and correct tower clamps. As you can see, the
car's spotless engine bay has been properly sprayed in a smooth coat of
satin black paint. And all its correct ancillary components, from fresh
decals and an Autolite voltage regulator to a correct power steering pump
and a reproduction Autolite Sta-Ful battery, are present and accounted for.
Peek underneath the car and you'll find a clean and solid undercarriage
that's punctuated by factory blue floors. In the center of those floors, a
close ratio four-speed manual transmission proves just as effective as ever
at slinging gears and scorching stoplights. From there, power is channeled
down the driveshaft to a rugged combination of correct 3.25 gears and
Dutchmen axles that are housed in a correct Ford 9-inch Traction-Lok rear
end. And the torque finally meets the road through a familiar set of chrome
Magnum 500 wheels which wear equally vintage F70-15 Firestone Wide Oval
Super Sport tires. The car's suspension remains in stock form with double
A-arms at the front and parallel leaf springs out back. Spent gases are
whisked through aluminized, true dual pipes which employ an H-pipe
crossover and great sounding dual chamber Flowmaster mufflers. As mentioned
before, there's a freshly rebuilt power steering system that makes turning
easy and parking a cinch. And braking is an equally smooth process thanks
to rebuilt manual drums that occupy all four wheel hubs.
Between the car's sizeable doors, a black vinyl interior offers the one
thing many basic muscle cars didn't -- comfort. While the bench seats may
not look like the lap of luxury at first, a brief stint behind the car's
wheel reveals just how comfortable they really are. At ground level fresh
black carpet, which is framed by chrome Ford sill plates, covers rock solid
floors while an equally nice headliner lines the long, slopped roof. The
dash is stock but Ford's choice to use individual gauge pods versus a
standard cluster makes it look more modern than other cars of the day. At
the center of that dash, a correct Philco AM radio rides above a
well-integrated Auto Meter oil pressure gauge and a chrome Hurst T-handle
shifter. And in front of the driver, a factory steering wheel combines with
chrome accessory knobs and pleated black door panels to provide a fresh and
appealing driving environment.
There simply aren't that many chances to own a top dog muscle car --
especially at this money. Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com
