This 1965 Mercury Comet Cyclone was sold at Bring A Trailer back in 2020, but I thought you are going to appreciate such a well executed build.Evidently, it is not a genuine AFX car, but what’s wrong with a $100,000 tribute with extreme care in every detail?
This beautiful car is the result of a lot of hard work and dedication from the team at Randy Delisio’s Performance and Restoration. The black body is in impeccable condition, with a deep shine that is sure to turn heads wherever it goes. The car rides on 15-inch Cragar SS wheels that are wrapped in fat Mickey Thompson tires at the rear, giving it a menacing stance that lets everyone know it means business.
Under the hood of this beautiful Mercury Comet sits a Robert Pond Motorsport-built 482 cubic inch big block engine, which is capable of producing over 600 horsepower. The engine is topped with FAST velocity stacks and is controlled by a Tremec 5-speed manual transmission and a 4.57 geared Ford 9-inch rear end. The result is a car that is not only incredibly powerful but also incredibly fun to drive.
One of the best things about this car, however, is the beautiful V8 sound it produces. Thanks to HTP headers, dual exhaust, and Flowmaster mufflers, this car has a deep, throaty rumble that is sure to send shivers down your spine. Whether you’re cruising down the highway or taking it to the track, the sound of this car is sure to make your heart race.
Overall, the 600hp ’65 Mercury Comet Cyclone A/FX tribute on Bring-A-Trailer is an absolute stunner. It’s a testament to the hard work and dedication of the team at Randy Delisio’s Performance and Restoration, and it’s a car that any muscle car enthusiast would be proud to own. If you’re in the market for a classic American muscle car that’s been beautifully restored and is capable of producing some serious power, then this is definitely a car you won’t want to miss.
