Who is Dr. Cyclone?
Some of you long timers know Tom Wilson as Dr. Cyclone. For you new folks, Tom builds body parts for B-17 airplanes for a living and 68/69 Cyclone body parts as a passion. He buys the dead Cyclones and similar to Dr. Frankenstein he cuts them up, makes new parts and brings them back to life. If you have been around these cars for very long you know body replacement parts are almost always needed for a restoration but no one makes them. At least not until Dr. Cyclone went into his lab!
We have previously shown you some of the rare and needed parts he has stamped out on his press but here are some of his newest creations. Tom has agreed to give us a little tech session at our Talladega Family Reunion. He may even bring some of his parts for those of you who might need some. I already have my order in so get in line!
We have not been able to get him to do any Torino parts yet. However, many of the Cyclone parts are interchangeable but certainly not all. Everything in this post except the rear quarter panel patches and the Spoiler II header panel will work on a Torino/Talladega or a Cyclone!
What new parts does he have?
How do I get mine?
If you want any of these parts or others from the Dr.’s shop you can reach Tom by text or phone at 770-757-1508 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Dr. may even be able to deliver your parts to the Talladega Family Reunion if you order soon enough and you plan to attend or know someone from your area who will be.
