For Sale at Auction: 1970 Mercury Cougar in Scottsdale, Arizona

Vehicle Description

This Competition Blue 1970 Mercury Cougar Boss 302 ELIMINATOR example comes with a Deluxe Marti Report. The Cougar Eliminator was presented to the public as a hardcore performer that had the hardware to match. The front and rear spoilers provided an immediate clue, as did the racing-style mirrors (with driver's side remote), blacked-out grille with hidden headlights, hood scoop and full-length Eliminator side stripes. This is one of 2,267 Cougars with the Eliminator package, one of 323 with these engine and transmission codes, and one of 177 with these paint and trim codes. Eliminators came from the factory with certain standards that included full competition suspension with heavy-duty shocks and springs, plus a rear stabilizer bar. Power comes from its matching numbers 302 4V BOSS V8 engine. The cabin is in character with bucket seats, full instrumentation that contains an 8,000-rpm tachometer, oil pressure gauge, Rally clock with sweep second hand and E.T. indicator, and a "visual check panel" that houses a door-ajar and low-fuel signals. Built-in Dearborn, this Eliminator is further shown as a retail order that was constructed in early 1970. This Boss 302 Eliminator is presented in its correct colors and the Marti Report also confirms the Eliminator Package, 4-speed close-ratio manual transmission (with Hurst T-handle per factory specs), tinted glass throughout, Traction-Lok differential, raised-white-letter tires, console, power front disk brakes, power steering, rear seat speaker, deluxe belts, AM radio, black Comfortweave high-back bucket seats and the interior Decor Group. This muscle machine has also been fitted with the factory-optional-style steel wheels of the original design, as seen in the period factory literature. Included with this Cougar are the Deluxe Marti Report and documentation of the 1981 sale to the most recent registered owner.
