Hi forum!
Hope your weekend was full of fun, sun and cougars! I am contemplating building a cougar clone. My car came with the F-code Dark Aqua Metallic, White vinyl roof. My question is, did they make any 69’ Eliminators with this color combination? Do you think this combo would look ok? Or would it just look too much like a clone?

Give me your opinion!

Tom,
I think the white Eliminator stripe would look good on this color combo, as it matches the top. With the wing and hood scoop body color, I think it would be striking. Neal.

Aqua 69

Tom,
My 69 convertible is "F" aqua as well. It used to have (and someday will have again) a white softop. So, they probably look very similar. I have the white hood stripe on my car and the stripe looks great with the white interior and really contrasts well with the aqua. Like Neal said, with the scoop and fin the same color as the body like the 69 Elim's, it should look really sharp. Also, I do not believe the Elim's came in F code dress, but I sure would like to see what it would have looked like.
Follow the link to see my car with the white hood stripe.

Eliminator Clone!

The 69' Eliminators only came in Blue, Yellow, Orange, and White.

I think Aqua with white strips would look great! It would look alot like a clone if you keep the vinyl top, as the Eliminator package was not optional with a vinyl top.

The CCOA has a great site with lots of info on the Eliminator option:
