Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Ft Lauderdale is pleased to offer this beautiful 1970 Mercury Cougar Eliminator for sale in our Ft. Lauderdale showroom. Mercury introduced the Cougar in 1967 as the Pony Car wars were in full swing. Mercury was reluctant to bulk up the Cougar and take on the muscle market, a place where rivals like the SS396 Camaro and Ram Air 400 Firebird had already begun staking territory. By 1969, the Mustang was knuckling against these two with its 428 Cobra Jet Mach 1, and Mercury could no longer sit on the sidelines. By mid-year, the division had jumped into the fray with the Eliminator. The name was taken from a Cougar show car and from the 1968 Cougar Eliminator funny car driven by "Dyno" Don Nicholson. Management fathomed that racing exposure could heighten Mercury's profile with young performance buyers. Decked in bright colors, blacked out grilles, body stripes, spoilers and decals, the Eliminator was based on the standard Cougar and came with a choice of engines from mild to wild. This awesome bright baby blue 1970 Mercury Cougar Eliminator is powered by a 351 Cleveland V8 mated to a 3 speed automatic transmission. With a wonderful white, this is one fantastic looking machine! Options on this 1970 Mercury Cougar Eliminator include Am/FM Radio, Spare Tire, Tilt Wheel, Power Front Disc Brakes, Power Steering, and Competition suspension.
