1970 Cyclone GT, 351 4 barrel, automatic transmission, PS, PB, AC, center console, rear defogger, hide away headlights, competition orange with black bucket seat interior. The car currently has 14x7 magnum 500 wheels.
The body panels are straight with little to no sign of rust. The paint shines nicely. The panel alignment is ok but could be better. The black vinyl top is very nice with one little flaw I pointed out in the video. The interior is very nice with one small hole in the headliner.
The 351C runs great and the transmission shifts smoothly. The car goes down the road at highway speeds with out any problems. I rebuilt the front brakes with new calipers, brakes, and flex hoses, the back brakes were fine. The exhaust system is good. I also put a new 600 cfm Holley on top the motor. The wheels are new and the tires are like new.
The car did have some rust repair to the floors that I pointed out in the video. But overall I would say the car is solid. The wipers are not currently working and the radio is not original or working. The majority of the AC components under the hood are gone. However the AC dash and all the components in the dash remain intact. The body side trim is not original. It is stick on plastic chrome. It looks good but it is what it is! Original body side moldings go about $600 if you want them. Prior to a previous owner applying the trim and painting the black the car was solid orange with the trim hole filled in with body filler.
This is a great looking car, it drives great, its a nice example of a Cyclone GT that you can drive and enjoy. It's not perfect and it's priced accordingly. Check out the video below.
