I don't know about the caster but the negative camber is excessive...You would think that someone should have caught and corrected that... :o

Besides being undrivable, that much of a toe issue usually tire-squeals so loud that you need to wear a mask.

OBTW is a collapsed upper ball joint OK if it’s ‘original’?

Mecum boys'll have a hard time pushing that up on the block.

It will be interesting to see if it goes this high.

Wow. This car is really taking a beating from the forum brethren.

...not saying it doesn’t deserve it.  ;)

Rusty hood hinges, painted fender bolts, incorrect fuel pump and line, painted Cragars...So many things easily corrected to make it much more presentable.  Makes you wonder what's hiding in the trunk and underneath.

How do you see it as taking a beating, the car is what it is.  People are pointing out the issues and no one is "beating it".  I personally see it as education because if it's not right, its not right.  Whomever is looking to buy it should be educated and hopefully makes the right decision for them.  The worst thing someone can do is pay way to much thinking they purchased a gold car only to find out it wouldn't even place. 

Lets face it, if you drop 6 figures on a car you aren't typically going to Walmart and parking it in the driveway at home :-).  It's an investment regardless, just an awesome, jaw dropping one :-).

As long as the potential buyers knows and understand what they are getting and happy with the final price, then all should be good.  It is the surprises later that could be a problem.  Then I have issues.

I have a buddy that just called me today that is purchasing a beautiful Wimbledon white 1969 Cougar ELIMINATOR.  It does not have the original engine, but does have a freshly built 351 Windsor.  I told him he might be paying too much for a non-original drive train and that if and when he goes to sell, that will hurt the price.  We both agreed, if he loves the car, enjoys and drives the car regularly, then all should be good.

Take care

Cory

Cougar Eliminators were introduced in 69-70, none in 67.

Correction made.  I should have known better.  Typo

Thanks

Are you serious? Are carryovers up that high?

Quite optimistic.  I'd think it would have to be a Div 1/Premiere level car to get into that range.
