In 1970 Mercury introduced what they called the “Mercury Action Pack” and they were inspired by the legendary racing Cyclones and Cougars of the period. The four cars in the Action Pack were the Cyclone, Cyclone Spoiler, Cyclone GT and Cougar Eliminator. They were a rumbling brand of performance that was said by the Company to be a new experience.

The Cyclone Spoiler was considered the “muscle Mercury” and it brought all of the excitement through its long list of standard equipment which included the powerful and highly-respected 429-cid V-8 Cobra Jet engine that produces 370 horsepower. Additional standards consisted of a four-speed manual transmission with Hurst shifter, Ram Air induction, Traction-Lok differentail with a 3.50:1 rear axle ratio, Competition handling package, front anti-lift spoiler, rear deck “airfoil”, 140-mph speedometer, 8,000-rpm tachometer, oil pressure gauge, engine temperature gauge, ammeter gauge, Hi-back bucket seats, racing mirrors and special competition colors. This Competition Gold Spoiler 429 CJ has been restored and also features its interior in black, AM radio and styled steel wheels. Sources indicate that only 1,631 Cyclone Spoilers were produced. The vehicle is reported as sparingly used and will stand out as one of the toughest and strongest Mercury’s this side of sanctioned racing.
