Description for Mercury Cougar 1969

Proof that the elusive "Barn Find" is for real! This 1969, Cougar Eliminator S code, was literally found in an Ohio barn! Acquired through original owners estate by Sunbelt Motors, offering this rare, 1969 un-molested original barn find car for auction.
Specifications include:

390-4V V8 with close ratio 4 speed and 3.25 Traction Lock rear end. One owner car with 62763 miles "verified by estate with Odometer statement." Absolutely a unique and rare one off factory build. As the story goes, the car was purchased new by Mrs. N. Frazier in 1969. Mrs. Frazier gifted the car to her son, Glen upon his return from military service, in 1975. The car has been in the same family until Sunbelt Motors of Ohio purchased it in October, 2018. According to a source familiar with the family, the car was running when it was parked in the barn circa 1981.

Believed to be 1 of 4 Eliminators built in 1969 with this configuration: 390-4V with close-ratio 4 speed drivetrain and Competition Orange paint with White interior.

Hello Sun-Belt,

My name is Mike Banks, and I help track and document Eliminators for the Cougar Club of America and the Eliminator Registry. I've been following this car since it turned up for auction at Glen Frazier's estate sale a few weeks ago. Congratulations on your purchase - a very rare combination, as you know. This is currently the only Eliminator accounted for in this combination of Engine, Transmission, Color and Trim.

Very cool to finally add it to the Registry!
