1964 Mercury Comet History

In 1964 Mercury made major changes to their Comet. What once was the mid-size economy car image from 1960 to 1963, now restyled to change the look and feel with new V-8 engine selections, new sheet metal lines
and a more complex grill to name just a few. There was more than one model to choose from. Including a hardtop coupe, four-door sedan, convertible and station wagon, all with a standard bench seat and six-cylinder power. These Comets boasted decent handling and an economical purchase price. Comets were noted to be very fun and economical.A sportier off shoot of Comet’s top-line was the Cyclone. A hardtop coupe with standard bucket seats, console and a 289 V-8 with a four-barrel carburetor; it was the expensive Comet produced in 1964. Engine appointments included chrome valve covers, chrome air cleaner top insert. Distinguished by less exterior brightwork, simulated chrome-reverse wheels with exposed lug nuts, a tachometer, three-spoke woodgrain steering wheel, special interior trim and chrome engine dress-up. A special insignia with the word "Cyclone" and a checkered flag adorned the lower section of the front fenders. There were 31,204 Caliente 2 Dr. Hardtops produced. There were ONLY 7,454 Cyclone 2Dr. hardtops produced!!The Comet got a boost in its performance image when a fleet of Comet Hardtops averaged more than 105 mph for 100,000 miles in Daytona. After results of this endurance run were publicized, sales of the new Comets began to increase dramatically. Specially built drag racing Comet's with 427 big blocks also were making some noise on the tracks. This 427 Comet was one BAD BOY!! 43 years later the RARE to FIND 1964 Mercury Comet Cyclone is more desirable than when it was new!!


In 2007 this Gorgeous Black 1964 Mercury Comet Cyclone 2 Dr. Hardtop is very desirable car and a RARE FIND! When was the last time you saw a nice example like this car. Vin#4H27K546187. It is equipped with the strong running 289V/8 4 barrel . It has the factory 4 speed with the factory shifter. Finding a nice factory 4 speed Cyclone is a much RARE FIND in 2007 than a Automatic. It still has the factory tachometer mounted on the dash and still works. The Data Tag confirms this Cyclone came with a Factory 4 Speed and a 3:25 rear end. The White Bucket Seat Interior looks original and is in very good condition for being 43 years old. Console. It has new door panels and arm rests. A restored original Dash gauge Bezel has been ordered and will be installed. Then the Dash will look very nice. It still has the factory Mercury Comet under dash Air Conditioner that blows cold. The original Compressor has been replaced with a new style compressor that has less pull on the engine. New chromed bumpers trunk mat. It still has the original factory simulated chrome-reverse wheels caps. The original style F70-14 Firestone Red Line Tires sets this Gorgeous Black Cyclone off!!
