1969 Mercury Cyclone Spoiler and Spoiler II Fenders

We all know that the 1969 Mercury Cyclone Spoiler II fenders started life as regular Cyclone fenders but how much was really used from the original fender? Where was it cut off? What was added? To build the NASCAR minimum of 500 cars was a tall order for Mercury. There were a lot of special […]

What are you working on? Richard Fleener, Part 2

For me, one of weakest links in the Fords of our vintage is the power steering system. At least in my case, leaks from the system are constant and inevitable. I don’t know how many power steering pumps and power rams I have gone through over the years. I will not change out the system […]
