That's a very cool Cyclone Don. Did you have any idea that it was a show unit when you purchased it?

Nice going, Don - those are so cool! It'll look better when you get the rear end down off the jack stands! ;)

I got the all original GT rims with it as well as two more of the late model mustang rims. I will go with the GT wheels just need tires for them.

I noticed the car in the back ground. A 61 or 62 Olds F-85. I had one way back in the mid 70s before I got in to Cougars. It may have the Aluminum block 215 cu/in V8 in it. That was a fun little engine to play with.

I agree with Royce on the late model Mustang wheels.

Great looking Cyclone!!!

My parents bought a new 62 F-85 and in less then a year it started over heating. The dealer replaced the radiator because it had aluminum particles plugging it up. The heater quit too. Dealer said this would continue to happen due to the engine alloy and the next radiator would be on us. About a year later the over heating started again and they traded it in.
