Mercury Comet 427 Dominates in 64 NHRA


For 1964, Ford produced about 50 ultra-high performance lightweight Comet Cyclones, equipped with their racing two-carburetor 427 engine, similar to their cousin, the Ford Thunderbolt. To avoid competing with each other, the Thunderbolts ran in super stock on 7-inch (180 mm) tires, but the Cyclones were modified to run in A/FX on 10-inch (250 mm) tires, where they were as dominant as the Thunderbolts were in super stock. Drivers included Ronnie Sox, Don Nicholson and Wild Bill Shrewsberry in conjunction with Jack Chrisman.[4] Shrewsberry still owns his original 427 Comet in Caliente trim.

    1. thats an old pic from all American day at castle hill, a guy I work with took that pic

  1. Man that would be a fun car to drive 64 cyclone it was a good year I built one of those for a friend of mine when I was in the army in the mid- seventies pulled the 289 out put a 302 in it had a cam high rise Holly but the headers wouldn’t fit that year it took special headers we couldn’t get them put Toploader 4 speed in put a 9 inch Ford in it it turned out pretty good it was probably a little over 300 something horsepower good memories

  2. Friend of mine had one back in the late 70s it had a factory hood like that and a 390 i believe

  3. — those Ford Thunderbolts on 7″ Tires were really hard to handle — Hubert Platt was one of their best Drivers—-
