BIG 429 V8, C6 AUTO, AIR COND, PWR STEER, PWR FRONT DISC, EXC PAINT, SHOW WINNER
How about some American muscle that's big, bold, and rare? This 1970 Mercury Cyclone Spoiler tribute car has all the right features to grab attention on the outside and coddle you on the inside. And wait until we get to the engine!
The Cyclone was Mercury's version of the Torino GT. That meant it shared some seriously large power, while having its own unique styling and Mercury's lower production numbers. Competing with the likes of the Buick GS and Plymouth GTX, the Cyclone had to look the part, and this is one mean muscle car. From the aggressive hood scoop and gunsight grille, to the semi-fastback profile with subtle fender flairs, it was built to intimidate. This car was restored less than four years ago to an exceptionally high standard. The bodywork is laser-straight, panel fit is outstanding, and the paint has a brilliant orange glow that looks hot to the touch. True to the "Spoiler" name, this tribute has aggressive spoilers in the front and rear. It even has the package-correct striping and exposed headlights. This one was built so well it won the Best of Show award from the Ford Club meet at the 2011 Charlotte Auto Fair.
Inside, it's all about Mercury's blend of luxury and performance. The black vinyl seats are a must for any good muscle car, but these also have gray textured inserts that give it a much more upscale look and feel. The driver gets a Cyclone-specific three-spoke sports steering wheel. Plus, you have a B&M Quicksilver shifter to rest your arm or even bang your way through the automatic gears when you really want to takeoff from a stoplight. But this is more than just a driver's coupe. This is a big car with the space and seatbelts to seat five other people. So all your passengers get to enjoy the comfort of cold-blowing air conditioning, and modern tunes from the new AM/FM/CD player that was installed during restoration.
A car this mean needs a monster motor, and you won't be disappointed when you pop the hood. It's Ford's big-block 429 cubic-inch V8 engine that's famous for eating up everything on the streets. While the rest of the car has been restored a few years ago, this powerplant had its entire top end rebuilt just a few weeks ago. That's why everything looks so fresh and pristine in the engine bay, including the valve covers, tubes, wires, Edelbrock chrome air cleaner, four-pass radiator, and MSD Blaster coil. With all these upgrades, the dual exhaust has a heightened rumble that will scare lesser cars even at idle. Just in case that sound wasn't enough, this Mercury has no trouble getting its power to the ground thanks to Ford's stout C6 three-speed automatic transmission, linked to their nine-inch rear end. But there's more to this car's story. The rear end ratio is a highway-friendly 3.55. Combine that with the power steering, power brakes (discs up front), and modern BF Goodrich T/A Radial tires, and this is the kind of muscle car you won't mind taking on road trips.
Rare, beautiful, and impressive, this Mercury Cyclone Spoiler packs an upscale punch that will make Ford fans smile everywhere it goes. These haven't lasted in our showroom in the past, and we dont expect this one to either, call now!!
