Compare the Spoiler and Spoiler II

Meet some of our donkeys


We really like Uncle Tony’s Garage YouTube Channel and Uncle Tony enjoys visiting our place as well. Just recently Uncle Tony and his wife Uncle Kathy dropped in to visit our donkeys and to learn the difference between the 1969 Mercury Cyclone Spoiler and Spoiler II.


Unfortunately, as in almost every video and written article, there is a slip-up or two about the technical specs reported. Uncle Tony said the Spoiler II came with a Cleveland 351, we all know it is a Windsor but his slip up went completely unnoticed until I watched the video.

I hope you enjoy this and share it with your non-Spoiler/Spoiler II friends.


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.
