Hi All,
Here is my 70 cougar. When I just bought it on 1997 from L.A.
Now I have daily driven with that (in summer april-sept)
and it is time to take that car for COMPLETE RESTORATION for few years.
I am not going to do macthing number car, only refreshing and 428 CJ engine. Interior/exterior/wheels will be like original.

What you think ?
:p: :p:
regards satu

Does it have a 428CJ in it now? If not, what engine is it? Going to a 428CJ can be very expensive, you might be better off building up a 351. On the other hand with a well built 428CJ you might need hair plugs after driving the convertible LOL!

Thank you for your reply. Now it have 351 C, but we have extra CJ 428 (ex.drag racing stock engine) in our garage. That can be change to my cougar easily. Also my car is registered already to 428 engine that legally it is no problem.

(We do have also Eliminator 428 cj '70 drag race car class D/S.)

70 eliminator...

you got any photos of the drag eliminator? we'd love to see that one, too.

do you have problems getting parts in finland? surely there aren't many cougars there.
