1963 Mercury Comet Convertible / Roadster
1963 was the first year of the S-22 convertible. Only 5,757 S-22 convertibles were made that year. The S-22 Comet was only available for four years; 1960-1964. In 1965, the S-22 was renamed the Caliente. Although the exact number of S-22 is unknow, DMV records show only 121 remain today. How many of those were convertibles is also unknown. No matter how you look at it, this car is extremely rare and collectible.
The S-22 option package offered a few niceties, including special badging on the car’s exterior, the hubcaps, on the dash and steering wheel. It also included bucket seats with a center console. Other notable features to the S-22 are the stainless steel trim that runs from front to back on both side of the car, the chrome gills on the quarter panels and, the six rear taillights (three on each side) as opposed to four rear taillights.
The condition of this car is Very Good. The exterior of the car was repainted Mercury Comet blue and is in Nice Condition . All body panels are straight. The chrome and trim also shine nicely. The entire body has a crisp clean look throughout. The white power top can’t be more than a few years old and operates flawlessly. it will go up and down in less than 12 seconds, fits tight with no wrinkling at all. it easily locks into place without a problem. The boot is also in great shape. It goes on and off easily and has no tears or runs. The Interior is
in very good condition except for a tear that needs to be sewed on driver seat. All trim shines bright & has a crisp, clean appearance. All gauges and features work properly, including the radio. The engine was recently rebuilt with a 351 CI Windsor V8 with a Lumpy Crane Hydrolic Cam. A Edelbrock Intake as well as a Holley Carb was added for performance and reliability. It is nicely detailed and runs perfectly. The engine has a nice Cobra Rumble to it. Starts immediately, stops perfectly, drives straight without pulling and needs nothing at all. Tires are almost new.
This car is suitable for long or short drives, any day or every day.
