Restored to perfection!
Thanks for stopping by and looking at my Cyclone! Every classic muscle car has a story, this one is no exception.
This 50 year old beauty looks like it came out of a time capsule, no joke! Purchased in 71 in Yubacity (Northern California) it spent much of its life in the bay area with an owner who spared no expense on maintaining her. From there its following owner took the powerful drivetrain and built it up tastefully. (See list of performance upgrades below.) I bought this car last year after finding it at an estate in San Diego. It was a true barn find! The car was immaculate. It had spent the previous five years in a stall covered due to its owners failing health. Upon purchase of the Cyclone the torch had been passed! It was my turn to bring this rare gem back to life! - Now here we are... A beautiful Cyclone that runs and drives like a champ, no hiccups or oddities. Fires right up every time! This rust free example is extremely rare! Plus the interior.. its all original! Thats right, no seat covers or torn seat buckets.
If you want an opportunity to own a rare classic 70's muscle car here your chance!
