Dr. Cyclone, Tom Wilson, has been busy in his body-part recreation lab! He has been a life saver for many a nearly dead 1968/1969 Mercury Cyclone over the past few years. His passion, dedication, skills and equipment have allowed him to re-create many otherwise unobtainable rare Cyclone parts. What started out as a process to restore his own derelict rust inhabited Cyclones has expanded to help others. Now, the good Dr. Cyclone is breathing new life into some of the rarest of Cyclones, the Spoiler II cars!
The process of manufacturing his parts is a very expensive one. The extraordinarily small number of remaining Spoiler II cars prohibits any of the big parts manufactures from even considering such a task. The labor and time to make each part accurately and as near perfect as possible means the parts are not cheap. As the old story goes, “if it was easy everyone would do it!” The reason you can’t find the Cyclone/Spoiler II parts you need is likely because they just plain aren’t available. Until now your only options were to not do the project, not do it correctly or make the part yourself. If you can’t make one yourself you have to find someone who can.
We are not alone, this has been going on for years with the ultra expensive restoration of the Coach Built Classics from the early part of the 1900’s. The cost to restore and purchase these cars justifies the cost. The Spoiler IIs have not yet reached that level of cost, but neither do they need has many hand built parts.
