Retro Grade: '65 Mercury Comet Cyclone

Old School Muscle Meets HWC Quality

HWC Gary 09-06-12

With a style and performance upgrade in 1965, the Mercury Comet Cyclone became an edgier muscle car. Our Hot Wheels casting debuted in the 2011 Garage series, and gets its own upgrade now: the HWC special edition of the '65 Mercury Comet Cyclone! The offer begins on Tuesday, September 11 at 9:00 AM PT. It will be offered first to Red Line Club members for a 24-hour Priority Window, with remaining quantities (if any) available to ALL HWC members on September 12. Also, RLC members earn two Rewards Points for each one they purchase.

Finished in Spectraflame for the first time, the '65 Mercury Comet Cyclone will be dark red with a pearl white roof and stripes. Rising up between the unmistakable stacked headlights is a full-blown silver VUM engine, while the Neo-Classics wheels pay homage in tampo to Hoosier racing tires. It's a high-grade piece that belongs in your showroom!

  • Body Color: Spectraflame dark red finish (a first for this casting!)
  • Deco: Pearl white roof and stripes
  • Body Type: Chrome over ZAMAC
  • Wheels: Neo-Classics wheels w/"Hoosier" tampo
  • Base: Full-metal, polished-chrome-plated chassis
  • Window Color: Clear

With a production quantity of no more than 3,000 pieces, the '65 Mercury Comet Cyclone comes with an individually numbered sticker and ships in a Hot Wheels Kar Keepers case. Priced at $16.99 plus S&P (shipping & processing) each, there is a purchase limit of TWO per RLC membership on the first day of availability. If quantities remain after the RLC 24-hour Priority Window, it will be available for purchase by ALL HWC members, and RLC members may purchase one more.

Production car may vary from the photo shown. Mattel reserves the right to modify the color, decorations and wheel type.

Remember: When RLC members order this edition during the 24-hour Priority Window, they earn two RLC Rewards Points! You can still join the Red Line Club for 2012 now!
