SUPER SOLID Oklahoma car w/ recent restoration -thousands spent on re-chromed & new parts!
I have owned a few Cyclones and this is the nicest one. The body is really nice and straight! I still have all of the old Oklahoma receipts / registrations. This car has lived most all of it's life in a desirable climate so it's really super solid and runs great. Having said that it's certainly not perfect. There are paint chips, paint anomalies and such other small items that keep it from being 100%. Trim is the some of best I have ever seen. READ ENTIRE LISTING PRIOR TO YOUR OFFER.

NEW re-chromed bumpers by Tri-City Plating!NEW re-chromed fender trim (aka Sargent bars)NEW re-chromed rear deck quarter trim (see pics)NEW windshieldNEW rubber seals for windshield & back windowNEW tail lights and back up lights (all 4)NEW dash padNEW gas tankNEW gas tank sending unitNEW Crites fiberglass functional ram-air AFX hoodNEWEdelbrock302 high rise aluminum intakeNEW Edelbrock carburetor w/ electric chokeNEW Aluminum radiatorNEW Aluminized exhaust installed / weldedfrom manifolds backNEW Flowmaster style mufflersNEW B&M shifterNEW factory style carpetNEW rear view mirrorNEW dome light housing and lensNEW door handlesNEW door sillsNEW arm restsNEW oil pressure sending unitNEW rear tires (less than 5 miles!) fronts are good too

Fine printCar can been seen by appointment in central PA during the time of the auction. It is posted for sale locally so I reserve the right to sell it outside of this auction. Once the car has been purchased absolutely ZERO tire-kicking will be tolerated. I would rather keep my car than to deal with that.
