1965 Comet Cyclone

1965 Comet Cyclone muscle car
1965 Comet Cyclone. For 1965, this muscle car received updated styling front and rear (including stacked headlights). The base 6-cylinder engine was increased from 170 cid to 200 cid. Still using a single-barrel carburetor, it produced 120 hp (89 kW) at 4400 rpm.

    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.

      1. Cyclones were never convertible in ’65. The Caliente was the only model to come with a ragtop. I owned a Caliente 2dr hardtop and a convertible and considered putting Cyclone trim on the convertible.

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.
