I just received confirmation from Welly Die Casts in England, that they are currently in the molding stages for the new Mercury Cougar Eliminator in 1:18 scale!!
Even better news, they are doing BOTH 1969 & 1970 !! They are limited to 3 colors each year and interior color is supposed to be different too. The release date is unknown at this time, but it can't be long. I have posted the photos at the links below.

Bill,
good to hear the news about finally making a diecast for the 69-70 cars.Iasked a local diecast vendor if he heard anything about them making a diecast for the eliminator a week ago. He said i do not know i get a list from a local dealer and what he has and i go from there. So good to hear the cougar community will have 6 more diecasts to buy now.
thnks

p.s. they say what colors the cars will come in? the 2 giveaways are yellow and orange so far. They say if the blue and the gold or the green will be the other choices for 70?

Why do the 69's come in Maroon.....and they have black hood scoop/spoiler.

I hope they update the colors to the ones that came on the cars.

Nice to see it happening though....I will get a blue one for my brother. That will be a good birthday present. Bummer they arnt making a Yellow one.

Wooo, for someone like me, building a 69 Eliminator with a black scoop and spoiler, that one is PERFECT.

Can't wait until I can order one of these
