1961 Mercury Comet For Sale
I've owned this cute little 2-door Mercury Comet for a couple of years now
and I've just got to accept the fact that I will not have enough time to
I've already rebuilt the front end and fitted her with correct rims and
brand- new tires (if they have 25 miles on them I'd be surprised).
Still needs interior and interior refurbishing, but what a solid platform
to start with!
1964 Mercury Comet Caliente
Here's an extraordinarily clean '64 Comet! It's powered by a nicely
assembled 289ci V8 and a 4 speed manual transmission! The engine has a mild
cam, an Edelbrock intake manifold, an Edelbrock carburetor, Flowmaster dual
Exhaust with chrome tips, a Pertronix
coil, a fresh battery, aluminum valve covers and air cleaner, a K&N air
filter, and a Flex cooling fan. Everything under the hood is very neat and
sanitary! The insides consist of super comfortable vinyl bucket seats with
cloth inserts, a center console, very clean carpet and floor mats, a
tachometer along with the factory gauges, a Grant steering wheel, 2 speed
wipers, and a Kenwood CD player with 6x9 rear speakers! The Comet has a set
of Magnum 500 14 inch wheels with 195/70/14 Cooper Cobra radials, traction
bars, very nice glass and chrome, and absolutely beautiful black cherry
paint! This thing starts, runs, and drives fantastic! It's incredibly fun
and makes great power!

1964 MERCURY COMET CALIENTE CONVERTIBLE - MERCURY'S COMPACT
This is a rare " bird ". Only 9,039 Caliente convertibles made this year.
Of course, the 4 door sedans and hardtop coupes sold better: 27,218 and
31,204 respectively. The size of this Comet fools you. It just doesn't
look like a compact. The engine choices for Comets were L-head six
cylinders in either 170 cid with 101 horses, or 200 cid with 116 horses.
Then there was the V8 with 260 cid that provided 164 horses. In the
sixties, car makers produced many different models. Take Mercury for
instance: Comet 202, 404, Caliente, Comet Cyclone. Larger Mercs had
Monterey, Monclair, Park Lane, and the station wagons in Commuter and
Colony Park models. Ah, those were the days. No diversity amymore. This
Caliente convertible would run you about $2,636 new. So, check out this
rare bird and take this beauty in. Thanks very much for viewing this
Mercury Comet Caliente convertible.
SOLD 1950 Mercury Coupe Hot Rod for sale by Corvette Mike Anaheim California 92807
1950 Mercury Custom Coupe Candy Apple Red w/White interior.
If you get a bunch of gearheads in a room together and they get to talking
about what the ultimate hot rod is, inevitably there will be three
constants on the list; the '32 Ford Hi Boy Roadster, the '32 Ford 3 window
coupe and the subject of this ad; the iconic '50 Merc coupe.
The quintessential lead sled; the Merc defined the full bodied hot rod in
the '50's. Its flowing lines were a vast canvas on which customizers could
practice what was a fairly new art form back in the late '40's, early 50's.
Chopped, channeled, frenched and decked. That's what you did if you wanted
your Merc to stand out in a crowd!
And the sled being offered here does that in spades!
Designed to emulate customs made famous by legends like Sam and George
Barris, Gene Winfield and many others, this rolling piece of art has all of
the elements mentioned above, in addition to being wrapped in stunning
Candy Apple Red paint, white tuck and roll interior with a multi-carb'd
Flathead under the hood! Held in a vast private collection consisting of
only the finest custom automobiles, the work was done by Steve's Auto
Restorations using elements of Chevrolet, Pontiac, Cadillac, Olds & Kaiser.
The hardtop body has no "B" pillar, the headlights have been "Frenched",
hood corners have been rounded and of course it wouldn't be a '50's custom
without Appleton spots!
The interior features white "Tuck and Roll", laminated plastic knobs and a
'57 Olds steering wheel, power steering, a hidden audio system and solenoid
operated doors, windows and trunk The business end features a full dress
Motorhead City 1950 Flathead engine featuring an Offenhauser intake and
heads and three Stromberg '97 carbs. House of Color supplied the Candy
Apple over Gold exterior and "Von Dutch" style pinstriping. Wides whites
with full Cadillac wheel covers completes the deal!
It's an investment grade custom that spells upside in it's fortunate new
owners future. It was good enough for James Dean! Stk #N/A
Startup of 1963 1/2 Mercury Comet S-22 Hardtop/Fastback
Finally got my Comet running! It sounds ALOT better in person. I'll get a
better video later, but for now this is it. D Code 289 v8 4 speed in the
floor. Fastback roof (not a regular coupe) console and bucket seats. Right
now it has old rusty Thrush Glasspacks.
Mercury Cars of 1949 to 1951
The Mercury car model has been around since 1939 and was introduced as a
mid range priced vehicle by Edsel Ford.
Cars built between 1949 and 1951, would in later years prove to be very
popular amongst the Hot Rod Car Enthusiasts. They would reshape the steel
to produce cars that would set a new standard for Customized Vehicles.
Early model Mercury cars of 1949 to 1951 had a 90 degree V type, "L" head 8
cylinder engine with a displacement of 255.4 cubic inches. These engines
put out 112 horsepower at 3600 R.P.M.
Later model cars of 1955 replaced the "L" engine with the "Y" block V-8
producing between 188 and 198 horsepower dependant on the
engine type for that year.
This slide show is a part of a series of pictures of cars from different
car shows that I've attended here in Southern California U.S.A.
