I have a 66 comet with a 390 (came with 2barrel) 4 speed on the floor with a bench. A/c, power steering, power brakes. My parents bought it in 67 and turned it over to me this last year. I'm pretty sure comet caliente's with a 390 and 4 spd are rare.

I have seen 2 different Y code 390 Caliente 4 doors.
I have seen a Y code 390 66 Cyclone (Non GT) and owned a 67 that was the same. Theres some odd ball cars out there. I think the Cyclone Glass hood was optional for Calientes, but cold be wrong.

i think the dealers might have added the cyclone hoods and 4 barrel intakes on some calientes.but i might be wrong.the guy who had my 66 said it came with the cyclone hood,when i had it repainted the hood color matched the rest of the car when we striped it?
