We have spent a lot of time researching and reporting on the 1969 Ford Talladega and Mercury Spoilers but there is another Blue Oval car that continues to make us scratch our head. It is the 1968 Mercury Cyclone GT 500. Note, I didn’t say GT; it is a GT 500! The differences are small and to be honest I don’t even know for sure what they all are. If you go to our page on the Cyclone GT 500 you will know as much as I do.
I discovered these cars a couple of years ago and I am still trying to find out how many versions there were and how many cars were built. These also have a NASCAR connection and seem to be limited to sales in the SE but I did get a report about a possible sales promotion in the Colorado area. I am still looking for more info in the way of photos, build sheets and Marti Reports. News articles in magazines and newspaper ads are also terrific.
If you currently own one of these cars, know someone that does or bought one new please send me an email to Richard@LegendaryCollectorCars.com or leave a comment so we can get a more complete idea of what these cars are and how important they might be to the history of the breed.
