69 Elim in M&F

There's a well restored 1969 Eliminator in Mustang & Fords Magazine that shows a chrome grill. I thought, like Ray, they were black with the center chrome. Is is a Hertz 101 Eliminator, I wonder if that makes a difference?

The Eliminator in the August issue is a very good friend of mine. His grille is correct in that it is chromed in the center section and blacked out on the side pieces except for the top and bottom bars. All 69 Eliminators were done this way. The picture in the mag makes it look like the passenger side of the grille might be chromed, but it is not. Before any discussion arises about the hood pins on this car; they are NOT original and the owner is well aware that there aren't. This car won Best of Show at the '99 Cougar Nationals in Carlisle.

grill & hood pins

Barry,

AHHHHH! LOL Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words and it still isn't enough! The chrome top and bottom grill strips look just as "gray" as the center grill in the photograph.

I thought the hood pins were part of the Eliminator package, like the 428CJ, or could be ordered as a stand alone option. My pins aren't listed as an option on my car, but I like them regardless.
