1965 Mercury Cyclone
Not a clone!
MATCHING NUMBERS 1965 Mercury Cyclone 289/225hp 4bbl Edelbrock 500cfm (have factory Autolite carb), Auto, special order six digit DSO car was built July 9, 1965 (one of the last Cyclones off the Lorain production line?). Car was originally Pecan Frost with Palomino (tan) interior. Car is now black with black interior. Odometer shows 43639. Buckets w/factory console. Since these photos taken pulled old carpet out. Original Comet AM radio. Car came with rare fiberglass hood....been traded off. Now wears a Crites AFX hood. Only 200-300 Cyclones made with factory 'prototype' fiberglass hood. Great 14" tires with driver quality Cragar S/S's. Glass is good, no cracks or cloudiness. Window molding is great. Factory dash tachometer (needle missing). Have Cyclone rear panel emblem, Cyclone grille, inside door panel emblems, and quarter emblems. Cyclone steering wheel.
Quarters are rough. Driver's quarter is probably serviceable. I have a small quarter section for the drivers side from another car. Have a few leads on replacement quarter panels.
Car is driveable BUT needs a TOTAL rebuild/restoration!! The 289 runs like a champ. Front end is loose. Have an extra steering box and linkage off a Caliente. Brakes fair. Floors and trunk have been patched. Rear frame rails have rust. Center hump is solid. Torque boxes are bad. Good candidate for mild pro street/pro touring/AFX/NSS Nostalgia racer.
Outer rockers and inner rockers are solid! Front frame rails look good. Lots of potential for this factory musclecar.
The way you see it - is the way I bought it. Don't have the time to get into it.
For the listed price I have two really nice fenders to go with it.
Let me be clear: This is a project.
PM me for pics or more info.
