1969 Mercury Cyclone Spoiler and Spoiler II; What are they?

In 1969 the Aero Wars were all-out fierce competitions between the Ford camp and the MOPAR group. Believe it or not the fastest Fords were Mercurys! The 1969 Mercury Cyclone was faster than the Ford Talladega because the aerodynamics were better. Ford limited most NASCAR teams to the Ford Talladega since Ford sold far more cars than did Mercury. That resulted in Ford winning the NASCAR Championship in 1969.

What about the Mercurys? What was so special and why don’t we know more about them? Here is a video we did with Uncle Tony’s Garage YouTube Channel. I hope you learn more about these cars and will visit our other web site: for even more details and examples of these really cool cars.

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
