The Comet really came into its own in 1966, with an all-new body on a two inch longer (116 total) wheelbase, new trim, and beautiful styling which was especially fetching in 2 door hardtop and convertible form. It could be had as a Comet Caliente, Comet Cyclone or Comet Cyclone GT. The car had finally matured into a properly mid-sized vehicle after starting out life as a compact and gradually moving up in size since 1960.
The other major news for 1966 was the addition of the big Ford FE block 390 V-8, with 265 hp standard on the Comet Cyclone GT. Two additional power upgrades were available at extra cost; 275 hp (automatic transmission only) and 335 hp. Cyclones major competition was Pontiacs GTO. A Comet Cyclone GT paced the 1966 Indy 500.
The new 390 engine helped bring a lot of attention to Mercury with everything from street racing by civilians all the way up to the ELIMINATOR 1 funny car run by Don Nicholson. As for styling, the vertically placed dual headlamps which had debuted in 1965 made a return for 1966. Five circular instruments with a larger central speedometer were utilized.
The sporty Caliente two-door hardtop made a good family mans alternative to the Mustang. For 1967, a new instrument panel and new padded steering wheel center were the biggest changes to the car itself, with a new grille and trim changes seen outside. Under the hood, the 390 was now down to two versions; 270 hp and 320 hp (now standard on the Cyclone GT).
From a collecting standpoint, the best of the Comets are indeed the 1966 and 1967 cars, and genuine GTs command a significant premium.
This particular car is finished in the extremely rare Cinnamon Frost color and boasts the rare factory fiberglass hood and front bumpers for weight reduction. Its powered by the 330hp 390V8 driving a T6 transmission. Power Steering, Its stopped by power disc brakes and a 3.50 Positraction Rear..
The car came out of Kentucky and has been owned by a serious local collector for the past several years. It won an award at the Ford Nationals in Carlisle where cars complete from around the country, no small feat.
If youre interested in a muscle car that you wont see by the dozens at every car show you attend, with styling that still looks killer today, in true collector quality (with authenticity verified by Marti Report), at a price that wont break the bank, this Cyclone GT may be for you.
