Mike, there is a old video on you-tube of this car the last time it was up for sale.I don't know how to put the link up, but I think it's at least 5yrs old now. Maybe someone remembers it.

Does anyone know about the car? I'm interested in buying it. Trying to contact the owner to see about it but would appreciate any input.

Does anyone know about the car? I'm interested in buying it. Trying to contact the owner to see about it but would appreciate any input.

Please bear in mind that I have not seen it myself.

In the past the seller has been asking quite a bit for the car, and marketing it poorly, IMO.

2012 - on CraigsList for $65k, subsequently listed on eBay for $75k, no sale.
2013 - CraigsList $65k
2014 - listed on eBay, bid to $40k (reserve not met)
2015 - CraigsList for $65k, subsequently reduced to $58.5k

Previous CraigsList ads have been about the same quality as the current one.  In fact, the pictures in the current listing are the ones used in 2015.

Pics I have from past listings show over-spray, indicating at least a partial repaint.  Listings also say “no rust”, and my understanding is it still has the original block and many other original Boss components.

Recently Phil Parcells (Cougar Database Registrar) had this to say about it:
Quote
I have seen it in person. It’s a 20 footer, was never restored, it has been maintained. It hasn’t been driven in years. I’m not sure the reason for the overspray / repaint if those low miles are true. It is overpriced and the owner is difficult to work with, so I think he scared away any interest he had on the car.

Phil

I think that if someone were persistant, and knowledgable, and could spend some time looking at the car and working with the seller, then a deal could be struck.

With a few restored Boss Eliminators going for $70-90K over the last year, $55k for one in what appears to be driver condition...  may be over priced?  Hard to say without some eyes on the car, or some really good pics.

Dave Wyrwas (70Boss302) is the Eliminator Registrar and lives in New Hampshire.  I imagine he knows more about the car, and could possibly inspect it if needed.

Hope that helps!

You saw Catgirl's reply on the Cougar forum, I'm sure.  Sounds like it IS still available.  This one has been a tough sell.  It has just enough "patina" and issues that a restoration could be justified (which means you need it for a lower price to make it pencil out).  Or you could just clean it up and drive it around to shows as a "survivor" (which technically it is not how I would define "survivor", but is still very cool) - and just let the next owner deal with restoration and part numbers.  But that means you still need the price to pencil out for the eventual resale 5 years down the road.

The price on this one has been reduced significantly for a "quick sale".

This car has to go like today!! It is a great car - see the post below. But the owner is very elderly and he and his companion are set to drive to Florida on Monday. First 30k takes it. Please e-mail me at kelly@classictag.net or call me at 412-737-5593. This is a steal for this car. Located in Livonia NY

Also on CraigsList, although the listing still has the old price of $38k on it.
