This has got to be one of the rarest of our Project Cars. It is an original 1969 Mercury Cyclone Spoiler 428 CJ Ram Air Drag Pack Dan Gurney Special. We are still tracing the history of this car but we do know it was a special order Home Office Reserve for the L-M Eastern Region Sales Office and did a lot of drag racing in the New Jersey area. We have time slips and decals from the Island Dragway and Raceway Park in English Town, NJ.
There will be a lot more to come on this car. Our first task is to do a detailed initial inspection which we will record on this web site. After that will come the initial clean up and then the decision on how far to go with the restoration and the list of what we need.
If you remember this car up in the NE at drag races please let us know. Photos would be beyond our hopes!
This car is a 428 SCJ 4-speed Drag Pack with black bucket seats and console. We already know we are going to keep the original interior. It is in great shape only needing carpet and headliner (thanks to one pesky little mouse who gnawed a small hole right behind a sun visor.
Keep checking back there is a lot more to know about this car; its history and its future.
