Lot #1271 - This rare and matching numbers 1970 Cougar Eliminator with 428 SCJ Drag Pack has undergone a five year photo documented concours restoration by Cougar specialist KTL Restorations. During the 1970 run, 2,267 Cougars were produced with the Eliminator package. 127 of those Cougars left the factory with the 428 SCJ Drag Pack option. This car is one of five remaining with the rarer C6 automatic, as well as the 3.91 V Code nodular rear registered with David Wyras, the Eliminator registrar for the Cougar Club. Perhaps even more rare than its one of one status documented by the Elite Marti Report, this car retains its original born-with driveline with matching photo documented VINs on the block and transmission. Unique Drag Pack and Eliminator features include a speedo gear reducer, external oil cooler, external power steering cooler, manual choke, performance handling package, Ram Air induction with original factory cut hood and of course the reinforced SCJ reciprocating system with LeMans rods to withstand the rigors of higher RPM drag racing. With ultra-low production numbers, the 1970 428 SCJ Drag Pack Eliminator occupies a rare and unique place among the elite Ford muscle car produced during the golden age of horsepower and torque.
