Chassis Numbers 7 - 9

CHASSIS 7 – My second Cyclone! Bought from the original builder, sold by me in 2002 and now been through a number of owners. 1.8 8-valve Vauxhall engine. Recently owned by Martyn Henson, the original builder of chassis 27, which is my third Cyclone... we swaped cars! But then sold to a new owner in the Netherlands.

CHASSIS 8 – This is Stan Paice's car, who runs the Cyclone Register (see links page). Stan built this car in 1997 over a ten month period with the help of his son, Philip. It's powered by a 1-8-litre 8-valve Opel Ascona engine. The gearbox is an F16 unit. The colour is Renault Sunflower. Wheels are TSW Blades. The strange gearknob you can see in the pic is made from an Australian Banksia Nut! The original silencer (made with two MGB boxes) has been replaced with a stainless steel one made by Torque Technique of Salisbury, Wilts. I used the same company on my second Cyclone, with is currently in the For Sale section of this site. The front brakes (originally from an  Opel Manta) have been replaced with Hi-Spec discs and calipers, and the rears are also in the process of being upgraded to Hi-Spec units, including a handbrake facility.

CHASSIS 9 – This car features a Vauxhall 16v red top turbo in the rear. It's now owned by a new owner in the Netherlands. These pictures are provided by the previous owner, John Cuthbert, who bought from the original builder some years ago.
