Description:

1966 Mercury Comet

Thanks for visiting our listing for a 1966 Mercury Cyclone GT 390 that we’ve dubbed the Psycho Cyclone.


Never for the faint of heart, the Cyclone GT 390 was all performance and no excuses right off the production line. Boasting a big block 390 FE Ford and a Hurst shifted Top Loader 4 speed, this was the ground pounding hotrod to own back in the day.


We found this gem in December of 2014. Bringing her back to life has been a 19 month journey. Many parts were obsolete but the basics were there in big bold capitals. Big Block, 4 Speed, CA Black Plates that read “SiCK”, sorta and a matching title. The rear wheel flares were already done and we liked the chance to go wide on the rear tires. Building the Sick or Psycho Cyclone was on.


Rarity

This model/style was built for 1966 and 1967 only but even those model years featured very different front and rear styling. Like many muscle cars of the 60’s, there were many more base model Comets sold than hotrods. Still, winning races on Sunday meant selling cars to Mom and Dad on Monday and out of 155,000 Comets, 13812 Cyclone Gts were sold in 1966. Between lots of racing and 50 years of time, very few of these Cyclones are left.


Exterior.

Nice chrome and trim. Excellent glass. See the pictures. Solid with nice California floors.

Please come inspect this great 66 Cyclone before the listing ends. We are happy to meet you and show her off. Please keep in mind that this is a 50 year old used car and the loud pedal has certainly hit the mat more than a few times.

Please enjoy the video walk around.
