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.
