68/69 Ford Torino “Eyebrows” Fender Trim

One of the truly nice guys in our hobby is Marty Burke. Not only is he a good guy and he loves Fords and Mercs, he also is a wealth of knowledge and he makes terrific reproduction parts for our cars. If you haven’t checked in with Marty lately to see what he has in the way of used parts, NOS treasures or new reproductions you should do so immediately.

One of the most sought after parts for a 1968 or 1969 Ford Torino and FairlaneĀ is the front fender “eyebrow”. This is the trim piece that you find dented on the leading edge of every front fender of these cars. To find a repairable one is extremely difficult and expensive and to find an NOS or even good used one is like winning the Lottery. If you do find one it would help if you did win the Lottery because that little piece of trim is going to cost you. The next most difficult part to find is the leading edge of the hood trim. This piece also always ends up with a big unrepairable dent right in the middle of it.

Marty has come to the rescue again. He now has high quality reproductions of these parts available at a very reasonable price. These are now ready for shipping. They are reproduced using NOS Ford parts. They are perfect in every way.

Cost is a very reasonable $180/pr plus shipping. Marty is happy to take your Visa/MasterCard. He also reproduced the hood lip molding and it is available for $185 plus shipping.

The good news is, we don’t need these for our Talladega cars; the bad news is, we do need them for our Cyclones! Just a thought, maybe sometime in the future.

Some of my first and strongest memories from my childhood relate to cars. I still remember when things happened based on what car I was driving at the time. I grew up and lived in Iowa for nearly 40 years before moving to Southern California and now live in Tennessee. I was a Corvette fanatic for years but then re-discovered vintage American Muscle. My wife, Katrina, and I decided we wanted to focus on unique and rare muscle cars. After a lot of research we fell in love with the Ford Blue Oval Aero Cars. These were only built in 1969 and and aerodynamics became an important part of winning races. The only purpose of these limited production cars was to win NASCAR races using the Boss 429 and 427 power plants complimented with a special, wind cheating, aerodynamic body. The Ford Talladega and Mercury Cyclone Spoiler II are terrific and historic cars. This site is devoted to these car and their owners past and present. We provide an Online Registry for recording the long term history and ownership of every remaining Talladega, Spoiler and Spoiler II.
