SUPER SOLID Oklahoma car w/ recent restoration -thousands spent on re-chromed & new parts!
I have owned a few Cyclones and this is the nicest one. The body is really nice and straight! I still have all of the old Oklahoma receipts / registrations. This car has lived most all of it's life in a desirable climate so it's really super solid and runs great. Having said that it's certainly not perfect. There are paint chips, paint anomalies and such other small items that keep it from being 100%. Trim is the some of best I have ever seen. READ ENTIRE LISTING PRIOR TO YOUR OFFER.
I just bought another project so I have decided to let this one go. Good recent 'local shop style' restoration includes the following new parts (tons of money spent):
NEW re-chromed bumpers by TriState!NEW re-chromed fender trim (aka Sargent bars)NEW re-chromed rear deck quarter trim (see pics)NEW windshieldNEW rubber seals for windshield & back windowNEW tail lights and back up lights (all 4)NEW dash padNEW gas tankNEW gas tank sending unitNEW Crites fiberglass functional ram-air AFX hoodNEWEdelbrock302 high rise aluminum intakeNEW Edelbrock carburetor w/ electric chokeNEW Aluminum radiatorNEW Aluminized exhaust installed / weldedfrom manifolds backNEW Flowmaster style mufflersNEW B&M shifterNEW factory style carpetNEW rear view mirrorNEW dome light housing and lensNEW door handlesNEW door sillsNEW arm restsNEW oil pressure sending unitNEW rear tires (less than 5 miles!) fronts are good too
PLUSFactory Cyclone grill is in very nice shapeFactory Cyclone wheel covers are present but have scuffs & scratchesDoor windows roll up and down very, very smoothly
Featuring the following aftermarket extras:Smoke color professional window tinting workUnderdash Pioneer CD / Stereo with removable face-plate6x9 coaxial speakers in the rear deck/window tray
Things that I wish were better on this car -Missing rocker panel trimPaint has easily visible small "fish eyes" that shine in the sunlight (see fender close-up pic)Interior has been re-upholstered in non-stock material(2) small quarter sized holes in the headlinerOriginal AM radio assumed to be non-functional or has been disconnectedDash trim could better matched or restoredCenter console needs to be bolted down to the floorTwo of the factory cyclone wheel covers (fronts) are scuffed
Fine printCar can been seen by appointment in central PA during the time of the auction. It is posted for sale locally so I reserve the right to sell it outside of this auction. Once the car has been purchased absolutely ZERO tire-kicking will be tolerated. I would rather keep my car than to deal with that.
