1964 Mercury Comet Cyclone
New for 1964 was the Comet Cyclone

1964 Mercury Comet

The Mercury Comet was restyled for 1964 with a "macho" new image.  Gone was the S-22 and Custom series options as well as the compact economical image that was portrayed from 1960-1963. The new Comet's boasted both sport and style. New for 1964 was the model series 202, 404, Caliente and Cyclone. The most talked about Comet's of 1964 were the Caliente's and Cyclones. The Caliente was promised to be every bit as hot as it looked, and offered wide, full length molding down the side, a padded instrument panel with walnut grain trim and deep loop carpeting. The Caliente was offered as a 2 or 4 door and convertible. The Comet Cylone was the other new hot topic for the Comet lineup. These special Cyclones were 2-door hartops equipped with bucket seats, a 3-spoke steering wheel, center console, tach, simulated chrome wheel covers, and a chrome dressup engine kit that included air cleaner, oil filter, dip stick, radiator cap and rocker arm covers.  The '64 Cylone came with the 289 210 horsepower engine.
