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 finish her. 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
http://www.barnfineclassics.com/inventory/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.
