'69 Cougar Eliminator (original issue)

I mail-ordered this kit, in the late 80s, from “The Model Shop”. I got it intending to build it for my cousin who likes Mercury Cougars. This was an original issue “Drag Kat” kit I kept for years. I converted it to an Eliminator edition by sourcing the rear spoiler from the parts bin and scratch-building the front spoiler. The hood scoop was actually made from half of the suitcase that came with an original issue 72 Grand Prix kit. The black Eliminator stripes are from Keith Marks. The Chrome has not as illustrious as a new kit but heck, it’s nearly 30 years old! I wish I had some red “GT” decals for the center caps.

I totally share your cousins enthusiasm for late 60s cougars. That shape combined with the hidden headlights is my personal highlight when it comes to muscle car design (maybe with a 67 camaro RS next in line). Your model looks as good as the many others you present here. Nice overall build quality level . I also build a yellow eliminator from this kit few years ago:

But I could not save the black stripes. Still it will be in the cabinet front row for good.

I too am a big fan of hidden headlights. Especially '68 Chargers and '69 Camaro RS
