Description
By now most people who knew cars in the 60's and 70's associate the Comet with Mercury. Closer examination of the history of this particular car model reveals that it was in truth a much different story. In 1960 and 1961, Comet was the stand alone brand label for the bastard child of the then recently defunct branch of Ford Motor Company, Edsel. The Comet was to be the equivalent of the Ford Falcon in the Edsel line up. The cleaner lines and new grille was to replace the Edsel look which was .....
once described as an Oldsmobile sucking a lemon. With all the design work done and many of the parts already produced it made sense to assemble the car but with Edsel gone it was marketed under the Comet brand name and sold at Lincoln-Mercury dealerships. Many of the parts on this car display the stamped Edsel part numbers. This car has had the exterior refinished and clear coated as well as having the interior reupholstered and is a very clean example of the model. Having good solid floor pans and frame and a responsive suspension, this car would be one described as having good bones. This particular car is not without some very minor blemish but the trivial nature of the flaws actually show how much care this car has had over the last fifty plus years. Also included in this vehicle is a full set of tires on original rims and the factory hubcaps. This rare classic was put together when they still built cars out of metal, and lots of it. As I have alluded to, nothing here has been abused..and it shows. Dont miss this one!! It has the potential to bring home some trophies! If you are showing, cruising or just collecting, this car leaves nothing to be desired. This car would make an excellent driver or driver/keeper, your choice. The superb condition shown by its obvious survivor status and its way lower than the actual restoration price for a vehicle of this caliber, makes it a perfect choice for getting into the classic car market either as an investment opportunity or as a weekend or daily driver. If you've wanted a beautiful and quirky little car with a historical story to add some intrinsic interest along with the style it was born of and at an affordable price this is the one! This vehicle is priced at little more than the cost of the refinishing, not to mention the money and time invested in the mechanicals. Don't wait. Mileage stated in listing is the odometer reading only, not to be interpreted as certified miles.
