1970 Mercury Cyclone

Largely based on the Ford Torino, the Mercury Cyclone was the “sportier” model in the Montego line-up. The most noticeable difference between the Cyclone and the Torino was the lack of a fastback roofline. Another radical difference in the Mercury Cyclone was the “W” shaped nose to the car with the crosshair emblem. Even though a convertible was offered for the same year as the Ford Torino, the Cyclone never saw a soft top. In 1970 the Cyclone came in three different trims; the Cyclone, the Cyclone GT, and the Spoiler GT.
