Press Release, New Product
We believe it is important to keep our readers and Team Members up to date on any new developments we come across in the Talladega/Spoiler world. Recently, Nolan Clinard contacted us regarding a new product he is manufacturing that might be of interest to some of you.
It is a tail panel for 68-69 Fairlane-Torino fastback (Sportroof) that spans the rear rails were the bumper bolts to the body. It is designed to fit Fords and not the Mercury cars since it has the opening for the gas tank. Nolan is looking for input regarding the Mercury Cyclone cars which have the fuel filler tube through the driver’s side rear quarter panel.
This picture was supplied by Nolan. I have not seen these in person but would request anyone who has to provide additional input.
The panel is made of 18ga steel, and cut by computer at a modern machine shop. The components are assembled at a professional shop near his hometown. The price as shown is $250 plus actual cost of shipping.
If you are interested in one of these or would like to offer Nolan some suggestions on panels for our cars his email is: email@example.com.
If you know of any other parts that are being re-manufactured for our rare cars please let me know and we will be happy to post the information on this site.
