    This Mercury Caliente has the era nailed perfectly! This is how most hot cars looked back in the sixties and seventies. Not to many people had enough dough to have a strong, high performance drivetrain and a nice paint job..

    In my book, the height is right on the mark. I always liked the front to be slightly higher..

    I preferred the Sparkler version. It came with a chrome rim with a rough finished center section..

    Agree with the look & the stance but it's a Caliente, not a Cyclone. Close call ;)

    Thanks Joe, I straightened it out.. I thought the tail lights looked like Cyclone tail lights..

    A buddy had one of these. It was Butter Nut Yellow with black interior, 390 four speed.

    All '65 Comet models shared the same taillights. I drove a '65 Cyclone many years ago. Anyway, back to the Cragars ;)

    My '55 in the corkscrew at Laguna Seca.
    15x6" in front. 15x8" in back with the fender lips folded in a bit.
    I think Cragar SS's look best on mid '50's to mid '60's cars.:cool:

  24. Oh yeah! Had to have Cragar SS's in the late 60s/early 70s. I also had them on my O/T muscle cars. 64vette1972.jpg
