Are you a diehard Ford fan who’s looking for some rock-solid muscle that’s stylish, powerful and roomy enough to take your other-minded friends on enlightening journeys? Then this slick Merc is just the car you need! In typical ’70s Motor City metric, Mercury’s aggressive Cyclone, adorned with long surfaces and creases that stretch from stem to stern, is incredibly hard to get straight once it’s been overhauled or reworked. Fortunately, the metal on this retro racer was subjected to a ground-up restoration that involved excellent panel alignment and an astute attention to detail. Correct Competition Blue 2-stage creates a nice foundation for sporty stripes, a functional ram air hood and, of course, correct spoilers. And items like broad bumpers, color-keyed mirrors, an intricate rear valance and a distinct gun sight grille create a sophisticated profile that, even 46 years later, marches to the beat of its own drum. Pop this Merc’s hood and you’ll find 429 cubic inches of Ford big block that, in its fully restored state, does a fantastic job of mimicking assembly line aesthetics. That muscular mill transmits power through a close-ratio Toploader 4-speed, which spins a nodular 9-inch axle that’s finished with a correct Traction-Lok differential and correct 3.50 gears. At the front of that drivetrain, correct power steering mixes surprisingly tight turns with responsive feedback. At the corners of the car, correct power front disc and rear drum brakes supply quick and precise stops. And all that proven hardware rolls on painted steel wheels, which twist meaty 245/60R14 BF Goodrich Radial T/As around stainless trim rings and satin center caps. When it comes to maximizing the amount of car your money will buy, you simply can’t go wrong with unique Detroit muscle. If you’re looking for a stylish, comfortable, and reliable classic that commands a lot of respect on the show field, and feels right at home on the highway, this hot hardtop is your hot ticket!
