1965 Mercury Comet
The Mercury Comet is an automobile that was produced by Mercury from 1962–1969 and 1971-1977 — variously as either a compact or an intermediate.The Comet was initially based on the compact Ford Falcon, then on the intermediate Ford Fairlane and finally on the compact Ford Maverick. As a Mercury, early Comets received better grade interior trim than concurrent Falcons, and a slightly longer wheelbase.
Why This Car Is So Special
The 1965 Mercury Comet we have here at Skyway Classics has been restored to the way a lot of these Comets were back when they were new, modified to go faster. Ours has been completely gone thru and redone with performance being paramount and applied.
First off, to get more power to the ground than it had when it was stock, a modified and rebuilt 351W engine was added to the meticulous engine bay. It sends the power back to an automatic transmission and has all kind of go fast goodies including a 279/297/490 lift Comp Cam and kit, Polished Shootout Intake Manifold with a performance carb performance distributor, crinkle black valve covers, and headers.
Add to that a 3 Row Aluminum Radiator, new performance tires on mag wheels, and all new alternator, plug wires, B&M Quicksilver Automatic Shifter, performance gauges, air cleaner, wheel adapters, Mustang Front Disc Brake conversion kit, Cherry Bomb mufflers, fuel tank, and so much more. It comes with a binder full of receipts worth thousands of dollars for all the parts put into this car.
A newly restored bucket seat interior in light blue and white has Matching New door panels, trim, door handles, locks, buttons, dash, floor shifter, performance gauges, wood steering wheel, black with a red headliner. It is sharp and all looks brand new.
The clean trunk carries out the race car theme with a battery located in it.
The fresh white and black top paint job is accented by the Vintage Bubble performance hood with air screens and keyed locks, new chrome, and trim, plain smooth side lines, blacked out grill, great rear chrome. Bumper with a blacked-out front bumper, and a great stance and look.
If you want a Mercury Comet that will remind you of fast street cars back in the 60s, this 1965 Mercury Comet we have at Skyway Classics is the right one for you. Fast, great looking, all redone and at a great price. Come see it today.
