Building or Repairing a 1969 Mercury Cyclone Spoiler II Fender by Chris Vick

It has been awhile since I last posted  a story so here it is; FENDERS. Probably the most significant part of our long nose cars, T’s and II’s should be the same. I have built 2 sets of II’s fenders and have seen 1 nos T fender. Everybody knows that the front was added on […]

Spoiler and Spoiler II Hoods are Different!

Spoiler and Spoiler II Hoods are Different!

The 1969 Mercury Cyclone Spoiler and Spoiler II hoods are different! Ok, the easy response at this statement is sure, one has a scoop and the other one doesn’t. That is true but not the real difference. So let me go a step further; the Spoiler II hood is different from any other Cyclone! Thanks to […]

More Parts From Dr. Cyclone!

More Parts From Dr. Cyclone!

Dr. Cyclone, Tom Wilson, has been at it again. He has created even more new parts most of us need for our project cars. I am beginning to think that Tom’s nickname might better be “Dr. Frankenstein”! He is making so many body parts to help bring Cyclones back to life he is just like a real […]

What Are You Working On; John McElroy?

A couple of months ago I saved a very rare 390 4-speed Cale Yarborough Spoiler from languishing away in a garage. The car had new paint but had been sitting for years and was not being put back together. Some parts were missing and a lot of assembly was required. My backlog of projects prevented […]

What are you working on? Randy Gray, Part 2

Back in August of this year we told you about Canadian Randy Gray and the progress he was making on his Dan Gurney Spoiler II. At the time he was extremely excited to see the car in its blue and white paint scheme for the first time. Randy recently sent us some more photos of […]

What are you working on? Jim Ozinga

We have had a rash of “What are you working on?” submissions recently. I really like these and most of our readers seem to agree. The idea behind these is not so much the finished product but the progress of projects. Most of us have something we are working on. Our readers enjoy the variety […]

What are You Working On? Randy Gray

One of the things I most enjoy is sharing the photos and information I receive from our readers about their projects. Recently Team Member Randy Gray sent in some photos about his 1969 Mercury Cyclone Spoiler II project. It started out as an original paint car that suffered from just enough wear to justify a […]

What Are You Working On? Tom Wilson

What Are You Working On? Tom Wilson

Earlier we shared some photos of a Color Code car that Tom Wilson that lives near Atlanta is working on. Well, you won’t believe these photos. How would you change out a firewall on your car if it was damaged or rusted out? More than likely you would just use the car for parts or send […]
