1965 Mercury Comet
CLASSIC 1965 MERCURY
Up for sale is this fantastic 1965 Mercury Comet street machine with a 347 cu. in. Windsor stroker motor. Current owner purchased the car in 2013 as a gift for a relative who turned out not wanting the car. Comet was only driven 75 miles in those 2 years to local car shows and cruise nights. Electrically the car is sound. All of the lights turn signals and brake lights work fine. The car does not have any mechanical issues.
Present owner has done many improvements and upgrades since purchasing the car to make it very reliable and fun to drive (see list below). He has too many toys and has to reduce his inventory. The Comet is priced to sell and a great value.
