1965 Mercury Comet Cyclone Race Car

This 1965 Mercury Comet Cyclone was purchased by the current seller when it was featured as a BaT Exclusive in August 2010 (see listing and Success Story). The car has since had the drivetrain, suspension, brakes, and steering rebuilt. It retains the 13″ Baer brakes, 347-inch small block, toploader, and TCP coil-overs that set it apart from most of the Falcons and Mustangs it runs against. All fluids are new and the car is ready to go. It is displayed below with all current photos, and is available near Laguna Seca raceway outside Monterey, California for $30k.

This 1967 Chevrolet Camaro was raced in the Northeast ever since its build was completed in 1971. It has been closely patterned after the Penske Sunoco team cars. Find it here on eBay out of Santa Clarita, California.

american race car 1967_c10


We love Camaros that have been set-up for road racing. The mild fender flares allow room for some serious Hoosier rubber on this car, and this Dodge Viper GTS blue is slightly lighter than the Sunoco cars. All the exterior modifications on this car are very tasteful.

american race car 1967_c11

We like the simplicity of the cars we see in vintage photos. The shot above shows this car in its early 70′s trim, apparently ready to race in Canada with several maple leaf logos. The look of the front of this car with covered lights and deleted front bumper is very similar to the original set-up above.

american race car 1967_c12

The interior if this car is impeccable, and we love the clean white finish. The cage is very complicated but is claimed to be the exact design of the Penske cars. The onboard fire system, brake adjustment, and inboard stainless braided lines are all nicely executed.

american race car 1967_c13

The engine is an SVRA-legal 302 with 4-bolt mains and a spectacular 580 horsepower. It is backed by a trick Jericho transmission with a Hurst shifter. The cowl induction is custom fabricated and looks very nice.

american race car 1967_c14

This car has all the right parts and is very well built. The only thing it is missing as actual Trans-Am race history from pre-1971, but the SCCA history does make it nearly as legitimate. This would be a great Group 6 car, but should not be purchased by a beginner.

This 1968 AMC Rambler has been given a thorough restoration in the style of the Hurst SC/Rambler cars, but might be even better given its fuel-injection and 5-speed transmission upgrades. We like the real Hurst cars, but nobody drives them, and this one can likely be had much cheaper and will be a better performer. All that plus a hot 390 AMC V8?

american race car 1968_a10

Okay, so the patriotic colors and hood snorkle are a bit garish, but we think they are great because when painted all white or pale yellow these cars can be forgettable. This one looks strong over 5-spoke wheels, and we would enjoy telling people that we drive a Scrambler instead of a Rambler

american race car 1968_a11

The interior is really well done with nice bucket seats and a clean dash. We’d lose the Grant wheel in favor of something more low-key, or maybe even the stock wheel. The Edelbrock fuel injection programmers are a selling point, and we suspect that they can be detached or hidden when not in active use.

american race car 1968_a12

The 390 V8 is nicely warned over with large exhaust and a mild cam, but our favorite upgrade is the electronic fuel injection. This system still hides beneath the stock looking air cleaner but gives far better fuel control and tuning than a carburetor. Just this addition also gives us more faith in the build, as it isn’t something a cheapskate would add.

american race car 1968_a13

This is a cool little car, and the V8, 5-speed, and 3.70 positraction axle more than back-up the flashy paint scheme. Drive it to work all week and take it to grudge night on Friday!

This 1964 Chevy Corvair coupe looks terrific and has was built into the current vintage race configuration in 2001. According to the owner it has since run at Lime Rock, Pocono, VIR, Summit Point, BeaveRun, Blackhawk Farms, and Monticello Motor Park. He says that it is never the fastest at the track but is never the slowest, and we really like seeing one of the early body Corvairs prepped for performance instead of the more commonly modified later cars.

american race car 1964_c10

The car has the nickname the “Plain Brown Wrapper.” It was painted 1964 Desert Beige, and the seller says that the 1964 coupes were the lightest of all the Corvairs. This one weighs 2314 lbs.

american race car 1964_c11

The interior has a clean vintage look thanks to custom carpeting and a vintage wood wheel. The stock seats are included but have been swapped out for a single Kirkey race seat. We’ve always dug the round dials of this dash design.

american race car 1964_c12

The engine bay looks far too clean for a car at this price point. We love the look of open K&N’s on these flat-six engines. The stock low-spec engine was swapped out for a four-carb model, and the 3-speed transmission was also swapped for a 4-speed.

american race car 1964_c13

This is a great looking car that has the right privateer look, as if it might have shown up at a track looking like this in late 1964.

I have resisted restoring the car over the past 10 years.. the new owner can keep as is or restore and enjoy all the attention that goes with owning this very special car.
american race car Nh10
It took me almost 10 years but I now have film of the car at Nassau, at New Smyrna ( middle weeked of the Feb. 57 Daytona Speed Trials 1st ever NASCAR Sports Car race ) , at Daytona on the beach and at Sebring. Shortly after buying the car and showing it at the Bloomington Gold Special Collection..I was contacted by GM. Over a period of a few months they provided me hundreds of Vintage Photo's. It is time for me to retire andlet someone be the new owner/custodian.
american race car Nji10
I will post a few pictures and later add the film links. Purchaser will get everything that goes with the car. If you like a Special Bonus feature..the hardtop retains it original headliner. I was advised years ago that in 1956/1957 Corvette Hard Tops had the last 4 digits of their VIN # handwritten on the underside manufacturer label prior to installation of the head liner. If by chance the hard top got swapped with one of the other two sister Nassau cars..it could identify one of those two cars still missing after all these years.
