Not really a "for sale", but spotted this yesterday while combing CL. Pic in the ad shows a Metallic Blue '69 Eliminator. Searcher says he posts here occasionally, but he has no VIN to track via DMV or to give to Elim Registry.

I suggested he try a reverse VIN search with Martiauto, since he knows many various details about the car.

In case his ad expires eventually, here is his email and text of the ad for future reference.

Wanted: This 1969 Mercury Cougar - $1 (Richmond / Amelia)

I'm trying to locate a car and hoping someone who reads this can help. I know it's a shot in the dark, but why not.

In 1969, my father bought a blue Mercury Cougar Eliminator from Whitten Bros in Richmond. He owned it for a short time, sold it to a lady in Richmond, who sold it back to us (my brother) several years later. My brother drove it throughout college, and sold it to a gentleman in Ameilia probably around 1981. I have been unable to locate the VIN and unable to get any help from DMV without it. The car has a lot of sentimental value; my first car was also a Cougar, both my brothers have owned them, and I've owned several since then. My father passed away many years ago, and I would love to track this car down and talk with the owner about it. The picture below was taken at our house when it was owned by my brother.

Any leads anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated!

Well, its time for the Eliminator Market to crop up again. Funny how it goes in waves of feast or famine. My wife thinks it has to do with business economy / tax cycles.

As you probably know, Don Rush has information on 3 Eliminators local to Oregon that are for sale. His thread is here:

The one in omaha has woodgrain dash..? Guessing it's not an ecat..? Looks like a nice car though...kinda steep for an XR7


That 70 says Mike_B all over it doesn't it? Could be the one....

The Omaha car looks like camera-case to me. Its also in the Registry, and the owner has a Marti and Eminger for it.

Now the Saginaw car is questionable, to me. No clock, wrong seats, etc.

Not sure about the blue car. Have to get some info on it.

Yeah - it is the Saginaw one I was wondering about.....

The Blue one looks like the dash may have been altered for guages - but if you really look - it looks like all they did was extend stuff out of existing pockets and maybe didn't hack it up...? (I hope) Kinda looks like it may be salvageable....sure sets it up for some wheeling and dealing I'd say.

Possible scam going on with the Vanguard Eliminator. I've sent Vanguard and Autotrader an email about it.

Someone appears to be using the Vanguard pics and description and offering the car for $10k.
