March of 1969 at the Atlanta 500 marked the debut for the Cyclone Spoiler II. It isn't often remembered, but the Spoiler II did not race immediately in the 1969 season. In particular, Mercury teams like the Wood Brothers ran a Torino skinned car at Daytona in 1969. Same goes for the Boss 429 which was not legal to run immediately in 1969. It also made its' debut at the Atlanta race. To celebrate the new car and engine, Ford paraded a selection of Spoiler II's before the race.
