It was an original paint car, it was certified by Dave Wyrwas (he is the previous owner and Cougar Eliminator Registry) as original, the car should also have staggered rear shocks and it does not. It was a 100% original car with original paint before we started the restoration and can be verified by Dave, and I have the original build sheet for the car and Marti. Furthermore my fully documented SCJ eliminator 4 speed did not have staggered rear shocks even though it should (and Bosscougars used to own that car). Guess what, they built some cars with exceptions, it was a different time. Hope this clears up your questions.
Frank i see you posted that you send McKeever a pm, why not just post for all to see?
