    1. You are mistaken about the ’65 cyclone. Cyclones never had a 6 cylinder. They only came with v8s, only came as 2 Dr hard tops or convertibles, only had 3 SPD autos or 2 of 2 4spd manuals. They were Mercury’s answer to the super sport.

    I ordered a 1965 Comet Caliente when I got home from the Marine Corps, I had the only one in the 5 state area I had all Cyclone equipment High Performance 289, 4 speed, in the turquoise color with the same vinyl interior I loved that car I would like to have one back but can’t find one.

  5. My first brand new car. Ordered a red 4 on the floor 289 and I loved that car. Received it in April 1965 and entered the Navy in October to stay out of the army managed to hang on to the car . Was married and had two daughters and a great wife .Rolled it over and totaled it in 1969 on Michigan ice. Still very sad as the car had all my young life memories.
