With 15 of this Mercury Comet Cyclone converted into B/FX race cars in 1965, you’re looking at one remarkable piece of American automotive history. Showing less than 550 miles on the odometer, which means she lived 1/4 mile at a time, this car definitely feels at home at the drag strip.
Mercury did great in the 1964 A/FX class with the 427 powered cars, so for 1965 they decided to enter the B/FX where cars had small blocks. This 1965 Mercury Comet Cyclone packs a Hi-Po 289 V8 engine, which dressed with Ford Racing parts exceeded 400 horsepower.
