Most of the pictures of the 1965 Comet Cyclone show it with a small popup hood scoop and carburetors.
The image below shows the exterior setup (along with my Dad and brother)
Also see here for a shot of the engine setup.
In the image below the vehicle has a fuel injection unit on it. More than likely this was testing for the combination that would run in the 1967 Cougar called ‘Super Cat’.
Following up on the last post here is another set of pics showing the progress of the construction of the 1967 Cougar known as the ‘Super Cat’.
I’ve I’ve had a few scans lying around of the Super Cat showing the construction of the vehicle. The vehicle built was done by my Dad in my parents garage in Inkster.
This image comes from a scrapbook that we had. Shows the 1965 Comet Cyclone named the ‘Chargin’ Cyclone’ launching off the line at the old Detroit Dragway. Pretty cool shot of the car.
Tom Tate sent me this picture of the Chargin’ Cyclone at Detroit Dragway in 1965. 427 SOHC power.
Been awhile since we’ve seen this car here. Lookin’ good.
Here is some information from the 1968 Super Stock Nationals program.
First the cover and then WG’s Cougar which was highlighted inside.
The image below is from the interior of the program.
A semifinalist in last year’s funny car action, Wayne Gapp’s gas Cougar is capable of mid-9’s, 150 mph
Found this in files. This is the cover of the program for the 1967 Super Stock Nationals. I dig the artwork
The Super Cat Cougar was one of the featured cars in the program.
Looks like Quaker State got involved with the Super Cat…
GREAT view of the work on the front end of the car plus the 427 SOHC ‘Cammer’.
The intake seen here on the 427 was later used on the ’69 Boss 429 Mustang…with a bit of work.
