The Mercury Comet Cyclone is a classic American muscle car produced by the Mercury division of the Ford Motor Company from 1964 to 1972.
The Comet Cyclone was based on the compact Mercury Comet model but featured performance-oriented upgrades.
The Cyclone saw production over five generations, with the 1965 model belonging to the first generation.
The Cyclone was competitive in motorsport events and achieved initial success in drag racing and later in NASCAR.
In the 1968 Daytona 500, the Cyclone took both first and second place.
In 1971, the Wood Brothers Racing #21 Mercury Cyclone dominated the NASCAR series, with 18 wins out of 32 races.
During its nine years of existence, more than 74,000 Cyclones were produced, but only 30 were made in 1972, its final year.
