Over the last year or so we came across the 1968 Mercury Cyclone GT 500. Not a GT; a GT 500. It is a very rare specimen and you would walk right by most any car you would see thinking it is just another Cyclone GT. You can read all about what we have found out about these cars on our Factory Specials page about these cars.
We thought we had figured out most of the basics on the car until we were contacted by Thomas Kau of Wisconsin. He told us about one he has had in his backyard for nearly 20 years! However, this one is greatly different from the previous GT 500s we have seen picture of. It raises an entirely new batch of questions.
All you four wheeled private detectives out there lend us a hand and help sort through all this.
