    This car is an r code. I saw it come up on e-bay a couple of years back. I have a copy of the auction with pictures.
    It is coral and had 91000 miles on it. A copy of the marti report was included with the auction.

  2. Hello everyone, I just bought a 69 CYS(rough)351 that is a 500 car.9H15M561604.Anyone ever hear of one of these.I can send pics to a phone or email.

  3. Hi everyone. I recently purchased a mercury cyclone GT 500 from my brother. It is listed in the registry at #10 (8H15R581776). I have disassembled the car to restore it, it is a low mile original paint car, It still has the markings under the rear bumper from the assembly line. My question is , it has a yellow stripe across the rear tail pan , does that mean anything? If so what? Can it be proven by documentation? I have heard it was part of a promotion, when you ordered the car, you had to pick it up at the race track and only 60 were done that way. Any information would be greatly appreciated Thanks Dave
