Description
OPENING:
From a high-end collection comes this beautifully done Comet Caliente. The 2
nd generation
Comet (64-65) was a hit on the drag strip with its lightweight body and V8 friendly engine
compartment. This one has the look and feel of those early days when "Dyno Don"
Nicholson and "Wild Bill" Shrewsberry ruled their class. Call Jordan (612) 290-9299 with
any questions you may have. See the video: .....

INTRO/HISTORY:
The Comet was born in 1960 and like the Mercury Meteor shared the trend in the early days
of the "Space Race" with a space-age name. The production run ended in 1977 having gone
from compact to intermediate, then back to compact. Styling was updated in 65 with
stacked headlights like the full-size Fords and it also received new tail end treatment with
tail lights appearing to go across the full width. It comes with a clean and clear title.

OVERVIEW:
Inside and out, top to bottom this 65 Comet Caliente is a winner in every department. You
could trailer it to the show, but youd be missing half the fun. Lightweight, fast, loud and
proud, its a time machine back to the golden age of drag racing and stoplight challenges.
This high end build is a head turner and a showstopper and is guaranteed to put you in a
good mood every time you get behind the wheel. Caliente means hot and this one means it.
