Has anyone bought one yet, or better yet started building one?

Used my hobby shop Christmas gift certificate to pick one up last week . It's currently in primer while I decide what color to paint it . The excellent instructions list all the factory stock colors and to my shock black is not amoung them . I only say that because in my mind I'm seeing a black Cyclone with a red interior . A little contemplation is in order...Anyway this kit is priced a little cheaper than a "standard" Moebius kit , not to worry it appears as detailed as the others . I will build this kit out of box as I usually do with a first look at a kit . So far everything looks good . One thing you notice with these kits is there are no leftover parts for the junkyard , i.e. options . I'm OK with that as long as they keep coming out with multiple versions . With this kit the only options are the "Cyclone" chrome steel wheels or S/S style mag wheels also chrome . The kit engine is a 289 or a 302 , I don't have the kit here with me , so I can't say for sure . My build will be done in a couple of weeks so I'll be sure to "chirp in" my commentary on the buildup .

                Take care and see you around the clubhouse .

Black is definitely a factory color for these... here's a '65 Comet picture gallery that Mr Geary dug up > http://www.ebay.com/itm/1965-Mercury-Comet-CYCLONE-/182393979503?forcerrptr=true&hash=item2a7787426f%3Ag%3ANtwAAOSwA3dYWBfL&item=182393979503&nma=true&si=bYAkEHFTz08UHg0aOY8iB34QSBA%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

This is a pretty cool kit with many interesting possibilities.

Oh , to have a spare 45 thousand bucks , what a beautiful car . This car "back in the day" would have made a great sleeper . Does anyone know if there were other engine choices for the Syclone version of this car . The mid sixties were wild times in Detroit , so I wouldn't be surprised if some "factory" hot rods were snuck out the back door .

 On my build , I'll have to check out the color sheet and come up with something . This is my fist look at this kit so I'll build it out of box . But from the looks of it , plummed and wired this could be a contender at any contest . On the bench is a 65 Plymouth Belvidere 1 that was painted black with a red interior , waiting for foil and chrome . (talk about a sleeper , with the 426 wedge or later hemi ,,,) I just love that look , and I'm really not a big fan of black . Some guys like everything black not me , I'm more of a color guy and usually will choose the extreme when it comes to color choice . Well we got 20 inches of snow last , so you know what me and my snowblower were doing all day , I'm pooped , time for a shower and the sack .

                 Take care and see you around the clubhouse ,

I haven't seen the kit to know what it contains.  Top engine in 65 was the 271 HP 289 with single 4bbl. 

For 1965, the Comet Cyclone was powered by the 289-cu.in. V-8 with 225hp, the same engine that was put into Mustangs. And for more power, there was a special high-performance package, better known as "Hi-Po," available with the Cyclone, and it shared the 271hp V-8 which, when installed in a Mustang, was known as the "K" code car. In the Comet, the engine code is "A." When equipped with the Hi-Po package, a 1965 Cyclone came standard with: 289 four-barrel high-performance engine, four-speed Toploader transmission, nine-inch differential, performance suspension, quick-ratio steering and 8,000-rpm Rotunda tachometer. However, the following items were extra-cost mandatory options with the 271hp engine package: four-speed transmission, heavy-duty front suspension, low-profile rayon tires and 42-amp alternator, according to 1965 sales information.
