1969 Mercury Cyclone Spoiler Barn Find Update

1969 Mercury Cyclone Spoiler Dan Gurney Special

I usually say, “Wipe it down; Fire it up; Hit the road.” I think in this case it is more like, “Hook it up; Strap it down; Hit the road.”

We told you about this Barn Find a while back. Well, now it is back on the road; not on its own but back on the road none the less! We have some photos to share of Lou and Erin hauling their newly found prize home. We will be keeping you posted on their progress of restoring this car as they provide photos to us.

You can find these updates on Our Friends’ Cars page under the Car Museum. This is a muscle car project that belongs to friends of ours in California; Erin and Lou Whitfield. We already have more photos on their page so check them out.

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.

I grew up and lived in Iowa for a good portion of my life before moving to Southern California. After 20+ years we now live outside Nashville Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check out our other web site at site) As long as it has four wheels and an engine I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife, Katriana, is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. It includes a Best of Show winner, a survivor, a driver with lots of patina and several others. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out working with or showing our miniature donkeys. You can see more about that part of our lives at
