Dr. Cyclone has been busy in the lab!

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.

Here are the newest offerings from the Dr.’s lab.

About the Author: 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.
