This 1969 Mercury Cyclone was built by Homan and Moody for Bobby Allison to race in the 1971 NASCAR Winston Cup season. The 1969 car was chosen because of the superior aerodynamics to the 1971 model. It features the 427 tunnel port Ford engine producing about 525 hp.
He first drove it at Talladega where he finished second to his brother, Donnie. With this car, he won the Charlotte World 600, the Dover Mason Dixon 500, the Brooklyn Michigan Motor City 400, with additional wins in Atlanta, Talladega, Darlington, and Charlotte. Bobby finished 4th in the Winston Cup National Championship that year.
