1961 Mercury Comet


I have a 1961 Mercury Comet. This was a previous storage find for over 12 years in Fort Pierce. I've had it as a project of mine for over a year now and have gotten the majority of the drivetrain finished. 68k original miles with one owner car. This is a very rare car with the options that it has. It is a 3spd automatic which is rare for this model. I never titled it in my name for that fact. I am starting a business and unfortunately don't have the time or money to keep her.
The following Upgrades have been made
Rebuilt carb. W/ warranty.
Full tune up.

Great overall car. Can be driven home depending upon distance. Could be a good restoration or rat rod, or restrooms. Not in a rush to sell. No low ball offers. I know what this car can be worth. Asking $8000 obo. I am also open to trades of same value. My names chris call or text
