1964 Mercury Comet

If you are entering the Muscle Car club, ere is a chance to purchase my 1964 Comet CalienteThis beast is a true survivor of the ages - looking pretty good for 51 Years of age...I love the lines and trim on this Muscle car.I have owned and drove my Comet for quite a while now.
Here is my list of known facts about the car:
  • Original paint and interior
  • No body damage
  • Chrome is very good as well as all the stainless trim
  • THIS IS A TRUE SURVIVOR
  • White wall tires are great!
  • The V8 engine was rebuilt but I do not know when. The car runs awesome! Watch the video...
  • The transmission is tight and shifts smooth with Three on the Tree
  • The glass is all good and windows work as they should
  • All gauges work as they should
  • All interior lights work as they should
  • All exterior lights work as they should
  • There are 427 badges someone added, left them on, ort of cool (see picture)
  • Nice heavy duty rear air shocks and new front shocks, s well.
  • New water pump and hoses
  • Rebuilt carburetor
  • Washington state historical/collector car plates
  • This is a true survivor, ut also a driver and brings a lot of attention!

What can be done if you want to get out of the "Patina" class at a car show. These are not and never would be my choices. I am an all stock guy which is why I own the car.
  • You could repaint
  • No real body work, hough it has a small bit of primer paint at the rear wheel wells
  • Redo the interior and update
  • Parking brake lever is stiff, eeds to loosen up a bit
  • Horn is not honking right now, ould just be a fuse, ay work at sale time, ay not.
The fine print:
  • I will work with shipping companies.
  • $500 non-refundable deposit due within 24 hours of auction close
  • Please do not bid if you do not have at least 10 feed backs and they should all be perfect
  • This car has been a blast for our family, ut the wife says no seat belts, hen no driving the kids. No way was I going to drill holes in the floor.
  • Would I drive it across the USA? Not sure, ut that certainly would be an adventure, would take old route 66.
  • It did make the drive from Washington state to Las Vegas and back - for the Hot August Nights, 013. (see front license plate)
