For Sale: 1966 Mercury Cyclone GT in Manitowoc, Wisconsin


Vehicle Description

Reduced! All vehicle trades considered, including classics and performance.

This is a real 1966 Mercury Cyclone GT, complete with its S-code 390ci 4v motor. It has been professionally restored in its original colors. The resulting car looks and runs fantastic, and represents one of the more rare and high performance Mercury models from the 1960s.

This car was taken apart and stripped down to bare metal. The floor pans were replaced, but all other sheetmetal is original and in excellent condition with factory stampings clearly visible. It was given a high quality repaint in its original code V color of Emberglow Metallic. All brightwork is in excellent condition too. Note the subtle pinstripe and rocker striping with "GT 390" callout.

The 390ci engine was rated at 335hp and a healthy 427ft-lb of torque. This motor has a few changes, most notably the Edelbrock aluminum intake, carburetor with electric choke, valve covers, and air cleaner. There is also an aluminum water pump and a Pertronix solid state ignition module and coil. The custom 3" exhaust and Flowmaster mufflers have a great sound. The engine is mated to the factory C6 automatic transmission and 9" rear end. There are many new parts underneath; suspension, steering, brakes, etc.

The interior was also redone with its code B4 Parchment / Emberglow color scheme. I think it's a very classy looking arrangement. The horn, heater, wipers, dash lights, and dome light all work properly. There is an aftermarket tachometer on the column and oil / temperature / volt gauges underdash. There is also a retro looking digital radio and a woodgrain steering wheel that really looks at home. Finally there is a very nice woodgrain package tray with "Cyclone GT" script.

When it comes to muscle cars from the 1960's, there are plenty of Mustangs, Chevelles, GTOs, and Camaros out there. But you don't see many Mercury Cyclone GTs, especially in this condition. Which makes this a very nice way to stand apart from the crowd.
