1970 Mercury Cougar Eliminator (Cat 2)

Photo of a 1970 Mercury Cougar Eliminator (Cat 2)


I owned my 69 CJ428 Eliminator and a 69 CJ428 Mustang Mach 1. I needed a more family friendly car so I sold the Mustang (the slower of the two CJ cars) and bought a 1970 Eliminator with the stock 351C-4v and air conditioning as my new family travel car. It had 3.00 gears and would get 18mpg on the highway. This was in 1972. I still have both Eliminators.


I have the Marti report and the window sticker on this car too. It has the 351 Cleveland four bbl engine rated at 300bhp

Factory Options

Air conditioning was the main option I wanted and it's got it.


I have put a ram air system on it (off of a CJ car), a holley carb takes the place of the stock autolight, it has MSD ignition, and Hooker headers. I replaced the FMS automatic with a C6, and the 3.00 non-traction lock rear with a 3.50 traction lock.
