***COLD AIR CONDITIONING --- AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION --- POWER STEERING***
***CARNIVAL RED PAINT --- RED BUCKET SEAT INTERIOR***

This is a 1965 Mercury Cyclone coupe in Carnival Red with red bucket seat interior. The owner asked me to list because he is moving to Florida and downsizing. This is a pretty original car with 106K miles on it. The only changes from original are the Cragar SS wheels. conversion to a dual chamber master cylinder. replaced the original four barrel with an Edelbrock and the AC compressor has been upgraded. The car is a great driver with power steering and automatic C4 transmission. I could not find any rust or evidence of previous rust on the solid body. It has been repainted once. The paint has aged and has some chips and blems. We believe the interior is original with buckets and console and a white headliner. The AC is very cold. AM radio does not work. Engine is the 289 A code that runs well. Car is a solid driver that could easily be taken to a higher level. It's a nice survivor car.
