1966 Merc Comet Cyclone GT Pace Car

I have a 1966 Cyclone Gt Pace car the car has 28s in the vin. I was wondering if anyone had info on this car and whats it worth. It is all apart and needs to be restored but 1 of 100 I think it should be worth it.

Out of curiosity, do you know what the differences are between a pace car and a normal Cyclone GT? Thanks.

Check out the following site for decoding the comet. I to have a 66 cyclone 289 four speed. I just learned that only 1,300 of this model were produced which I suppose makes it somewhat rare.

Bluto, have you ever seen or heard of the '66 Cyclone with the 289 HiPo engine coupled to a 4spd?

Well yea, why do you ask? Check this out: 1966 Mercury Comet Cyclone Hardtop 289 4-bbl V-8 4-speed performance analysis (since October 1965 for North America U.S.) Btw, did the other site I gave you help you out?

Where in heck do those specs come from? I'm fairly sure the only 289 in a 66 is the 2V C code.
