Mercury Cyclone GT 500

We don’t talk much about the 1968 Cyclone GT 500 because we know so little and there just aren’t any around. It has been a great draw for this site and people seem to really want to know more. We recently received an email from K. Peppers with some information and photos that we thought deserved a little special attention. If you want to know more about these cars we have listed as much as we know on this site. We would also direct you to our sister site where you can view even more photos and register your GT 500.

This car is not for sale so don’t ask.

Peppers states that he is planning on restoring the GT 500 for his cousin whose father bought it new. He hasn’t started on the restoration yet and based on these photos I think he should keep it original un-restored. What do you think? He is going to get a Marti Report before doing anything.

We hope to have more details on this car soon.

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

  1. Had a 1968 Mercury Cyclone. Bought used in 1973 with 21,000 miles for $1100. Sold it in 1975 for $750. Needed money for college. It was Calypso Coral with a 390 engine and manual transmission. Wish I could find it back. Have another spotted. Same color but a 351/auto. I’m from a small town in southwest Iowa. An old farmer has this car but will not sell. Drives it to town for groceries once a month just to tease me.ilsovig
