Lou and Erin Whitfield; 1969 Mercury Spoiler Dan Gurney

Updated: 1-17-2011

1969 Mercury Cyclone Spoiler Dan Gurney Special

This is a muscle car project that belongs to friends of ours in California; Erin and Lou Whitfield. It is a true barn find. This will be a long term project but we will keep you informed as it moves forward. These photos were taken as the car was being loaded up for its trip home. It just got a bath at the local car wash and will need more than that before it hits the street again.

It is a 351 Windsor with air. These Dan Gurney Specials are very rare making this one terrific find. For more on the Spoilers and Spoiler IIs you can Click Here.

Here are the most recent photos of Lou and Erin’s Project Spoiler. From the photos this looks like one really solid old Gurney Car! Erin, keep us posted on Lou’s work.

See any rust? NO!

Lou has got this shell cleaned out!

Don’t you wish your floors looked this good.

    As for rust-out and rot-out, no. It looks worse than it is. What folks see is 40 years of “rust flash”.The car’s solid, and it’s never been hit.It has the original paint, which will come off when I take it to bare metal this spring.
