1966 Mercury Cyclone
One owner cyclone from 1966 til April 2019. "A true garage barn find story (always garaged since day 1)
We have copy of original tan Virginia Title with car.
Purchased NEW by Mr. Doug Howlett
Mr. Howlett purchased new at M.D. North Lincoln/Mercury in Norfolk, Virginia in late 1966
Car stayed in Norfolk throughout it's early life into the 90's and then he moved to Suffolk, Virginia where the car stayed in his heated/AC garage with his trains sets & other toys (total man cave)
Sometime in late 90's Mr. Howlett sent Cyclone out for 1 repaint and freshen up on original engine & transmission (rebuilt & resealed)
Mr. Howlett gave us photos of him and his wife leaving for honeymoon sometime in 1966/1967 time frame.
In early 70's Mr Howlett used car for loan to buy a home for his growing family (paid 2nd lien off in January 1973). From then on he kept car in his garage for weekend driving and enjoyment.
Mr. Howlett broke his back sometime in 2016 and is now confined to a mobile wheelchair. He can no longer drive and enjoy his cyclone anymore.
My son and I found out about cyclone in spring of 2019, we went to his home in Suffolk and met Mr. Howlett now into late 70's age. He showed us his man cave and trains, but I couldn't keep my eyes off of the beautiful Cyclone. We purchased it that same day and went back a few days later to drive it home. On trip from Suffolk to Virginia Beach cyclone turned 100,000 miles as we drove it back (these are original miles).
We photographed Mr. Howlett with title in hand in front of his car when we purchased. It was hard leaving seeing how upset Mr. Howlett was, taking his prize toy away. He cried as we left his driveway.
