Hello all, I just bought myself a stripped-down shell of a '66 Cyclone GT hardtop, along with many boxes and bundles of parts that go with it. No engine or tranny but the VIN and doorplate indicate it was an S-code 390 w/C6 automatic. This will be my first restoration project, although I've wanted one of these ever since I got rid of the '66 Caliente I drove in high school. I look forward to learning from everyone's experience on here and I hope I can contribute some along the way. -Steve

Thanks for the warm welcome! I haven’t taken delivery yet so I don’t have any good pictures. I’ll post some as soon as I get the car home.

My Cyclone GT was delivered yesterday. Yes, it needs a lot of work.

That gives you something to do :P One of my favorite body styles is '66 2dr hardtop, I bet you can make a super nice car out of it. Not sure how hard it is to find parts for them but since it shares the Fairlane platform I am sure most of the mechanical parts are easier to come by.

Can't wait to see you start working on it.

See Ya,
Mike

Thanks, Mike. Speaking of Fairlane compatibility, do you know if floor pans are interchangeable between '66 Fairlanes and Comets? The floors on this one are worse than I thought. :(

I am going to say yes, if I am wrong someone here will correct me :P

Check the regular places like Mac's etc. and see if they list them as the same.

Good luck, I think it will all come together for you just fine.

See Ya,
Mike
