New Parts From AMD

Torino Fuel Vent Hose

Marty Burke is at it again. You may know him for being the chief judge for the Fairlane Club of America or for his tremendous supply of Torino and Cyclone parts or his reproduction parts. He has a long history of working with AMD (Auto Metal Direct) to create accurate reproduction parts. We all know from being an owner of a 1968/1969 Torino or Cyclone (especially Cyclone) that NOS or reproduction parts are extremely hard to find. To help our Team Members, we will continue to bring you the contact info on anyone we find that has parts available for your car. Likewise, if you have parts or know someone who is producing them let us know at rfleener@comcast.net and we will let others know.

Here is the most recent part Marty has worked on in conjunction with AMD. It is the Talladega fuel vent hose. This fits 1968/1969 Torino, & Fairlanes. The Cyclones doe not have this part.

Fuel Vent Hose for 68/69 Torino and Fairlane

These are prone to getting hard and brittle over time. If you are bothered by a fuel smell in the passenger compartment this may be your fix. These will only set you back $29.99 plus freight.

AMD made these from a NOS part that Marty provided to them as a model so you know it is right.

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.
