Our Detroit Showroom is proud to offer a super rare 1965 Mercury Comet Cyclone. For 1965, the Comet Cyclone was powered by the 289-cu.in. V-8 with 225hp, the same engine that was put into Mustangs. And for more power, there was a special high-performance package, better known as "Hi-Po," available with the Cyclone, and it shared the 271hp V-8 which, when installed in a Mustang, was known as the "K" code car. Powering this gorgeous Comet Cyclone is a 289-cu.in. V-8 with 225hp at 4,400 rpm and 305-lbs.ft. of torque at 3,200 rpm, with 9.30:1 compression. The cylinder blocks were built with durable precision-cast alloy iron, five main bearings, hydraulic lifters, a Ford C5MF-9510-A four-barrel carburetor, and the correct code for this engine is "C." The interior on this 1965 Mercury Comet Cyclone is a pristine Ivory vinyl sporting buckets and a console. The Cyclone interior features all-foam bucket seats with pleated vinyl covers over laminated fiber and foam, which gave the Cyclone the most luxurious seats in its class. A console was also standard equipment with the Cyclone. The unique door panels with pleated vinyl, bright upper and lower moldings, black vinyl insert and Cyclone nameplate, also in black, adorned the garnish molding, according to factory literature. You can enjoy cruising features like Air Conditioning and Power Steering while kicking back in your comfortable interior. If you are looking a collectible Mercury, look no further. Call one of our friendly and knowledgeable sales staff at 313-982-3100 to put this gorgeous Merc in your collection.

1964 Mercury Comet

1964 Mercury Comet


Engine: 302 V8
Transmission: 5 Speed Manual
Mileage: 67,478 ( since rebuilt )

For sale in our Tampa showroom is this awesome 1964 Mercury Comet. This beast is powered by a Ford 302 V8 Engine that includes a holly carb, MSD ignition and ford racing valve covers. It’s even got hood pins to keep the beast behind closed doors. Don’t be fooled by the 4-speed shift knob as this Comet has a 5-speed transmission that turns 3.08 posi traction gears. This Mercury is set up to handle great with a new front coil spring suspension. The white exterior is complemented greatly by the chrome Riddler wheels that really gleam in the sunlight. The interior is stitched up in an awesome black and burgundy combination that makes the inside as much of a head turner as the outside of the vehicle. Don’t worry about keeping cool as this Comet has a new vintage air system. The odometer is only showing 67,478 miles. This body style comet has a lot of history behind it starting in 1964 the Comet was redesigned with a much more square shape, though it was still built on the same unibody as the 1963 model. Its basic lines were shared with the new Falcon, but the front grille used styling similar to that of the Lincoln Continental. Along with the redesign, the model designations were changed. The performance version was known as the Cyclone, replacing the previous S-22. Then in descending order of trim levels were the Caliente, 404 and 202, replacing the previous Custom and base models. The 2-door station wagon body style was discontinued. The top-of-the-line station wagon continued to be known as the Villager. The base 144 cid six engine was dropped and the 170 cid six became the new base engine. The 260 V8 was available at the beginning of the production run, with the new 289 being available mid-year. Due to the success of the full size Ford and Mercury "fastback" roofline introduced in mid-1963, the Falcon and Comet 2-door hardtops got a similar roofline with sharper corners. These vehicles really helped pave the way for the muscle car era that was about to begin in the United States of America.
