I'll have to go with the original "Eliminator" Cougar funny car :WEG

I also loved the way Fast Eddie Schartman(?)'s 70 ProStock Cougar looked!

Hmmm...need to go find pictures!

One of the original teams that got Cougar funny cars (the first flip tops) was the Kenz and Leslie group in Denver. The car was a tube chassis with the flip top fiberglass cougar body, a cammer and a C6 transmission. It was driven by Ron Leslie. The last time I toured the K&L facilities (about 20 years ago) they still had the car and one or more spare cammers. It is in a small collection of company race cars that they occasionally let tour groups see. I don't know if they still have the collection but the company is still in business.

Back in the 60's it was a competitive funny car but I don't think they traveled much.

If we are talking original cats I would have to vote for a 68 GTE with a 427 4 sp 2nd up is the 428cj cats but don't under estimate any cat you see putting up the road, there could be an fe lurking under the hood waiting to pounce....lol

both steve, mine was identical to this one right down to the factory hood pins. i noticed that they left the cj428 stripes off the hoode only difference that i can see is that mine had a ford shifter and not a hurst.

Nice car. The changeover for the Hurst shifter was probably 1970 like with the Mustangs.
