For Sale: 1968 Mercury Cyclone in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

The Cyclone carried the banner for Mercury in motorsports during the muscle car era. This 1968 Fastback design was so successful in NASCAR racing, that it spawned the "aero wars" in which the major manufacturers released increasingly radical designs to outdo each other on the superspeedways. Big name drivers like Cale Yarborough and Dan Gurney wheeled these cars into the history books. This 1968 Mercury Cyclone Fastback is set up for maximum enjoyment on the street utilizing the tried and true 302 cubic inch V8 with a Holley 4-barrel on top, and a four speed manual transmission with the factory floor shifter. That coveted V8 muscle car sound emanates from the dual pipes equipped with Magnaflow mufflers. Finned aluminum Mickey Thompson valve covers and a chrome air cleaner offer a sprinkle of hot rod vibe under the hood. Power steering and power front disc brakes add to the driveability factor. The car is finished in medium blue metallic with white GT stripes at the belt line and the axle line with GT emblems on the front fenders. The interior will bring back memories or take you back in time. A thick wood rimmed steering wheel sets the mood and it feels great, while a column mounted tach and Sunpro gauges are both attractive and functional. The wheels are the correct Styled Steel GT Wheels with raised outline white letter radial tires. A 1968 Mercury Cyclone is a rare find today, and this one has been driven only 231 miles since being restored. Now's the time to bring out your hidden Cale Yarborough.
