When Mustangs grow up, they want to be Cougars. With the same long nose, short deck styling as the Mustang, but in a slightly larger, more luxurious package, the Cougar offers grown-up performance for people who like a little luxury with their muscle. And if you're unfamiliar with cars like this 1970 Mercury Cougar Eliminator, well, you get a serious dose of performance to go with your unusual Mercury styling.

Freshly restored in high gloss Competition Yellow with black Eliminator stripes, the Cougar's lines are clean and instantly recognizable. From the finned front grille and hidden headlights to the kick-up behind the doors, it looks muscular and every bit the high-profile muscle car that Mercury wanted it to be. Added goodies include the hood scoop and deck lid spoiler, which make the Cougar look like a middleweight boxer in a tuxedo, elegant but ready to rock. They skipped the vinyl top that's sometimes found on these cars, and we think it's all the better without it, looking sleek and potent as intended. The paint is well applied over super straight sheetmetal, and the shiny yellow paint reveals that a lot of time was invested in getting everything blocked and flat. All the chrome and trim has been polished up, proper Eliminator decals affixed to the quarters, and the full-width taillight is in superb condition.

The all-black interior was the most popular choice in 1970, and it still looks awesome today. The high-back bucket seats look right in the vintage cat, and the door panels have been restored to like new condition with carpets obviously installed not too long ago. The gauges appear to be original, and their condition suggests that this car has always been treated well, and the setup includes a factory tach, which was optional even in the Eliminator. The original AM radio is still in the center of the dash, and with the entertainment available from rowing the Hurst T-handle shifter through the gears, we don't think you'll worry about an upgrade there. There are no surprises in the trunk, either, where you'll find a correct plaid mat.

Power for the big cat comes from a 351 Cleveland V8, which was rebuilt just 200 miles ago. A correct intake and big Holley 4-barrel carburetor gives the engine bay the proper 1970 look under that big air cleaner, which has been augmented with reproduction decals. Plain valve covers remind you that this car was built for speed above all else, and with Ford Blue paint, it looks like it should. Hoses and ignition components appear to be newer, and everything works as it should, starting easily and idling with a definite performance soundtrack. The aforementioned 4-speed manual transmission spins the original 9-inch rear with easy-cruising 3.25 gears inside, and there's a great-sounding dual exhaust system that rumbles with the proper amount of authority. A beautiful set of 15-inch Magnum 500 wheels really set off the orange bodywork, and the staggered 235/60/15 front and 275/60/15 rear BFGoodrich T/A radials completely fill the wheel wells.

For those of us who have reached a certain age, a little luxury with your performance is definitely a good thing, and this Cougar delivers plenty of both. Documented with a Marti Report that verifies that it's a real-deal (1 of only 2,267 produced) Eliminator, this is a very rare find that's 100% ready to rock. Call today!
