THE 1970 MERCURY COUGAR ELIMINATOR



The Eliminator was a special performance model only produced for two consecutive years. Mercury released the Eliminator half way through the model year in April 1969.
Although over 72343 Cougars were produced in 1970, only 2,200 Eliminators drove off the assembly line. This accounts for roughly 3% of the cougars produced. Of all Eliminators, sources report that about half of these cars had the 351 Winsdor V-8 engine. The remainder was split between the 428 CJ, the BOSS 302 cars. The 428 CJ was only available with the 3-speed automatic transmission. The BOSS 302 was only available with a 4-speed.
The Eliminator had special features to seperate it from the masses of other muscle cars. Every Eliminator came with the 4 barrel carburator standard. The Eliminators of 1969 and 1970 had different stripe packages on the hood and lower body line. The Eliminator had the "black-out" look of the Ford Mustang MACH I.
