Chuck Logan's Eliminator is a super nice very original car. He is expecting big bucks because of the NADA value showing his car to be worth $40,000 or so. (His interpretation, not mine) While I think it should bring top dollar it would be the first I have heard of selling in that neighborhood. Does anyone know of a Eliminator actually selling for more than the $24,000 that the Boss 302 went for a while back?
I think I remember a 69 rcode convert going for a few more dollars than the boss. The car was on ebay. But who knows. I have seen a couple of r codes with asking price of more than 30k. If they sold or got what the asked I don't know. It seems though cougars are climbing in price.
was that 70 rcode vert the one on ebay? Some big numbers. suprising no big buck eliminators. Is 24k the most paid for an eliminator? the boss cat was sold to mustangs unlimited, correct? HEY ROYCE!! Don't hog up all the nice cougars.
When I went "surfing" for my Cougar in the winter of 2000-2001 I used to pull about 7-8 pages from collectorcartrader.com in the 1000-8000 dollar range I only pull 1/2 that now.So someone or somebody out there are buying alot of cougars I know they'er not in my yard.Maybe being a cougar owner will get some respect now.
dan what we are experiencing right now is what happened in the eightys to a lesser extent where everyone is buying up cars and trading them since the stock market took a dump. When the economy takes back up then prices will drop again. if you look at the prices of other cars cougars havent risen as much as their compatriots and like the buicks and oldsmobile are relegated to second class citazens. mustangs and chevys are pulling some big numbers right now. just wait and many of these new restorers who do their restorations with a fountainpen will be selling off their livestock when they need the money to put in that no better stock then the deals will start poppping again. right now its a sellers market. bad time to buy. noty saying in todays market that the car isnt worth that to someone but he has more money than sense personally. but ive never been big on the whole matching numbers thing so to someone who that means something to they will probably pay that but in two or three years will he recoup that ...... thats would not be a test i would be willing to take.
Didn't Rich Ladd's 70 Q 428CJ XR-7 red convertible go for $32K? And resold a year or so ago for $28K (distress sale or whatever)? Although not an Eliminator, it should reflect what they are worth. plus 3 years of market change, up hopefully.
One thing I can't figure out is why Eliminators are supposedly worth more than a drop top with the same motor. I always subscribe to the philosophy that "if the top goes down, the price goes up" having had a 64 Falcon Sprint convertible, 64 T-Bird convertible and now the Cougar convertible.
