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!
1963 Mercury Comet S22
Comet really came of age with this car! If Falcon could have the Futura,
Comet could have the S22! I'm amazed at the paint job on this car...it's
10 years old, but looks absolutely new! The owner tells me he has the
original tires! What a car!

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!
Startup of 1963 1/2 Mercury Comet S-22 Hardtop/Fastback

now it has old rusty Thrush Glasspacks.

1973 Maverick Grabber 332 Stroker first test drive
This is the first test drive of an 8 month build. It's a very clean 1973
Maverick Grabber that has been converted to a top loader 4 speed. The
engine is a 332 Scat Stroker, with Dart Aluminum heads, roller cam, MSD,
etc. During the build we also installed an SSBC 4 wheel disc brake
conversion. My wife was trying to film the "maiden voyage" and the
camcorder batteries went dead. She was relegated to the front porch using
the AC adapter. We will get it out on the road for more footage soon....
