Car description

1969 standard Cougar Drag Pak 428 Cobra Jet R code. Drag Pak 3.91 rear (code V) with a build date of November 21, 1968. Delivered to Toronto Canada. This is not an Eliminator, but a standard Cougar with Drag Pak option. Sorry, no engine, drive shaft or transmission and I don’t know where these original parts went. Original interior except carpet. It does have the original 31-spline, 9-inch rear end cast dated 8-J-23. Original burgundy color (code B) with white/red interior (small tears driver seat). No vinyl top from factory. I have a Marti Report (see photo).

Has factory power disc brakes, manual steering, ram air, AM radio, rocker molding, raised letter F70-14s, traction-lok 3.91 ratio (V code), automatic C6 transmission and tinted glass—nice little drag racer in 1969. Original buck tag, VIN plate and door data plate.

Magnet holds on 95% of this car. Nice and straight body with decent smooth paint needing wax. Beautiful rust free doors and front fenders. Both front fenders dated 11 13 W2. Passenger door is dated 10-1-W2. Driver door striker metal is dated 10-14-W2. Frame rails look straight and solid (see photos) and engine bay aprons are excellent with factory spot welds visible. I cannot find a date on the hood and see blue and brown paint peeking out underside. Trunk is dated 11-8-W2 and is in fine shape. Shock towers are good except for a small square cut-out on the driver’s side bottom inside corner (see photo). I see minor hammer work on upper shock towers for header tube clearance. Front grill is nice and straight. Some solid metal rust repairs on the trunk floor with undercoating added and this area looks good from underneath. Left torque box is very rusty and right has been repaired (see floor photo). Some bondo in the very lower rear quarters where metal patches were welded in. Quarters look good from inside the trunk with lower patch lines visible. Both long floors were replaced in the past and seem fine, some rust showing under the back seat floors. Wheel wells look good as does the rocker rails. I believe other than the metal above replaced, the rest of the car is original sheet metal.

Interior trim and original white interior are decent—some driver seat wear and tear. Nice dash with perfect and bright wood grain. Gauge faces are bright with a tastefully added tach. Nice Carlite glass with windows rolling good and both doors close perfectly. Speedo reads 6218. Beautiful original headliner, but two small mouse holes: one hidden above the passenger visor and the other above the driver rear sail panel. Doors close good with no sag.

It has an odd looking oil cooler (maybe a Canadian version) and one original oil cooler line. Looks like it was drag raced in the day, but not abused or wrecked. No crazy race mods...just bolt-on frame connectors (see photo), ram air scoop painted black, trunk mounted battery and a 1971 Mustang rear spoiler added. Someone cut the hood’s ram air hole bigger—I hate that! It has a DSO of A1 Central Canada, but I believe some of it's life was spent in upstate New York where I got it. Not aware of any racing history for this rare cat with very sharp claws.

Sold as-is and I expect full payment in 10-days. Contact me for more info please. I have the car for sale locally, so I reserve the right to end this auction anytime. Clean title in my name. Thanks Rick (301) 237-8360
