Description

Lot #1093 - 1970 Cougar Eliminator 428 Cobra Jet. Kevin Marti confirms this Competition Green (Gabber Green) vehicle was ordered by Ford research as a factory test vehicle and was shipped to building #5 R&E in Dearborn, MI. It retains its matching serial number motor and transmission. Photos taken during restoration verify this. Photos also show it was a very nice original car and it still retains its original sheet metal, windows and interior. The restoration was done over a two year period by Billups Classic Cars of Colcord, OK.
