More Parts From Dr. Cyclone!

Dr. Cyclone, Tom Wilson, has been at it again. He has created even more new parts most of us need for our project cars. I am beginning to think that Tom’s nickname might better be “Dr. Frankenstein”! He is making so many body parts to help bring Cyclones back to life he is just like a real life Dr. Cyclone “Frankenstein”.

Here are a few more photos of his most recent creations.

How about these; new passing gear kickdown arms for big block Torino and Cyclone!!
Ok, who can guess what this is in the first try? Answer below. Hint, the part is still in the die.
Have you figured it out yet? This is the butchered up radio opening.
It is the radio opening. The new piece is a repair patch for all those chewed up dashes out there as the result of 8-Track and Cassette conversions! This is the new patch panel ready to be installed.
This is the mold for the front panel between the fenders on a Mercury Cyclone Spoiler II.


Some of my first and strongest memories from my childhood relate to cars. I still remember when things happened based on what car I was driving at the time. I grew up and lived in Iowa for nearly 40 years before moving to Southern California and now live in Tennessee. I was a Corvette fanatic for years but then re-discovered vintage American Muscle. My wife, Katrina, and I decided we wanted to focus on unique and rare muscle cars. After a lot of research we fell in love with the Ford Blue Oval Aero Cars. These were only built in 1969 and and aerodynamics became an important part of winning races. The only purpose of these limited production cars was to win NASCAR races using the Boss 429 and 427 power plants complimented with a special, wind cheating, aerodynamic body. The Ford Talladega and Mercury Cyclone Spoiler II are terrific and historic cars. This site is devoted to these car and their owners past and present. We provide an Online Registry for recording the long term history and ownership of every remaining Talladega, Spoiler and Spoiler II.
