Additional Info

Here is a very original and hard
to find 1966 Mercury Cyclone GT with just over 86k original miles. Jamaican
yellow paint with black bucket seat interior. "S" code 390 4V, C6
automatic, 3.25 Equalock rear end (before they called them traction lock) power
steering, power brakes, bucket seats, console and factory tach. Appears to be
original from paint to hubcaps. Engine bay is nicely detailed and still has
factory chrome valve covers, oil cap, air cleaner, carb and exhaust manifolds.
Not perfect as it is 53 years old and original but still a nice looking driver
with some minor patina. It is very hard to find a Cyclone GT, much less one
that is this clean and original and anyone who has owned or ridden in an
original car knows how nice they are compared to cars that have been apart or
restored.

 

No Marti reports are available
for 1966, but the Data plate is original and reads:

VIN - 6J26S5xxxxx

Body 63H, Color 8, Trim 86, Date
06A, DSO 54, Axle D, Trans 4

 

The paint is factory original
but still shines. It is still quite presentable and looks very nice to the
casual observer but does of course have some flaws. The paint appears thin of
the front edge of the hood and the tops of the headlight buckets (from
polishing and waxing over the years). There are various chips that have been
touched up etc. The body is nice with no rust or evidence of previous rust
repairs anywhere, you will not find a more solid original example. Seams are
very tight and I don’t see any bubbles anywhere. No cracks where the roof meets
the quarter panel behind the quarter window like most every Fairlane or Cyclone
out there. Doors open and close very nicely. Door jambs are very nice. Body is
overall very straight with a few slight waves in the roof and some minor dings
in the trunk lid that probably only I notice. Also has one minor ding in the
right rear quarter but it looks like an easy repair for a paintless dent shop.
The frame, floors, undercarriage and trunk floor are original and in great
condition. Even the insulation on the underside of the factory fiberglass hood
is intact. Glass is all good, windshield has been replaced at some point.
Bumpers are original, they are both straight, front is pretty nice with some
thin spots from water drips and rear is straight and decent but is showing its
age. The rest of the trim is in very nice shape. Brand new BF Goodrich T/A
tires mounted on 15x7" Magnum 500 wheels The 4 original Cyclone hubcaps
are in excellent condition and included as well!

 

The interior is in very nice
condition and appears mostly original. The seats, dash pad, console, headliner
and carpet are all in very nice condition. The chromed plastic on the
instrument cluster does have some typical fading. Factory steering wheel is
very nice. Still has working original factory AM radio. The console is in
excellent condition and it has the factory tachometer mounted on the dash and
it works properly. Gauges, lights, signals, heater, wipers, interior lights and
horn all work. The glove box light and reverse lights still work! Even the
original weather stripping looks very nice.

 

The "S" code 390 GT
engine runs strong with no smoke, knocks or ticks. Nicely detailed, It is stock except for an
aluminum intake manifold, Pertronix ignition kit and a slightly larger Comp
270H Cam (cam card included). It still has the original Holley 4150 carb with
tag(which has been completely rebuilt), exhaust manifolds, chrome valve covers,
chrome oil cap, chrome air filter and dipstick. Transmission shifts well and
the car drives very straight and smooth. The 9" Equalock rear end is
smooth and quiet. Has a little play in the steering which is typical for cars
of the era. Brand new dual exhaust system from manifolds to stainless tips with
Dynomax Super Turbo mufflers. It has power drum brakes which are all new, new
shocks and the original power booster has been rebuilt. The brakes still don’t
seem to work as well as I would like but that is probably because they are drum
brakes. I would upgrade to factory style disc brakes, but that is of course up
to the buyer. I also have the original "S" code cast iron intake
manifold, which is included in the sale!

 

Real Cyclone GT’s are hard to
find and to find one this original and untouched is extremely rare. Overall
this is about as clean and original as you will find. It would make an
excellent driver and it ready to go as is. The casual observer will think it is
in excellent condition and the enthusiast will appreciate its originality.
Being over 50 years old, it is of course not perfect and has minor flaws to the
trained eye but it can be driven and enjoyed as is. It could use restoring of a
few small items to improve the look a bit if you so desired but I wouldn’t do
anything beyond that to the appearance myself.
