Description
This 1964 Mercury Comet sedan is a quintessential example of a vintage drag racer, exuding an undeniable presence with its Polar White paint job and period-correct styling. The single-year quad headlight design and Lincoln Continental-inspired grille set this Comet apart from the pack. Rolling on a set of 15"" American Racing wheels wrapped in 24x5.00R15LT tires up front and meaty 295/55/R15 rubber out back, this hot rod firmly plants itself on the asphalt.

Inside, the blue .....
vinyl interior reflects the car's racing heritage. Later model bucket seats hold you in place, while the rear bench and trim panels appear to be original or older reupholstered pieces. The B&M floor shifter and auxiliary gauges hint at the performance upgrades lurking beneath the skin. The carpet remains in good shape, and the original gauge cluster on the dash still presents well.

Powering this '64 Comet is a 302 V8 engine, featuring a Holley carburetor atop a Ford racing intake and an MSD ignition system. A set of headers lets the small block breathe, while a Lumen radiator keeps things cool. The C4 3-speed automatic transmission channels the power to the 8"" rear axle, which is supported by a traction bar and leaf spring setup. Mini-tubs in the rear make room for the wide rubber, and disc brakes all around provide ample stopping power.
