Cyclone Spoiler

1970 Mercury Cyclone Spoiler.

The Mercury Cyclone was restyled for 1970. The wheelbase grew an inch to 117 inches, but the overall length grew by 6.7 inches. The latter was due to a new protruding nose and fender design, that sported a gunsight-type design in the grille center. While its Ford Torino cousin got new fastback designs, Mercury intermediates did not, and also lost the convertible for its Montego series. The Cyclone hardtops had trunk lines about halfway between the old notchback hardtops and the fastbacks.
There were three Cyclones for 1970, the base model, the Cyclone GT, and the Spoiler. The base Spoiler came with the 429 V8 rated at 360 bhp, a four-speed manual with Hurst Shifter, the Competition Handling Package, 3.25:1 rear end gearing and a bench seat. Options included the 370 bhp CJ 429, 375 bhp Super CJ 429 and in some cases, the Boss 429. The GT had only a lowly 351 cid V8 rated at 250 bhp. The new Cleveland 351 was optional.

Production: 13,496

Engines: 351 Windsor V8 250 bhp. 351 Cleveland V8 285 bhp. 429 V8 360 bhp. 429 Cobra Jet V8 370 bhp. 429 Super Cobra Jet V8 375 bhp. 429 Boss V8 .

It was typical for the era. That's actually a mid-sized car.
