For Sale: 1962 Mercury Comet in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

This 1962 Mercury Comet has a wicked style all of its own. With a custom paint theme, nice V8 power, and the control of the upgraded five-speed, you're looking at something that, powerful, cool, and distinctive... all for an affordable price.


The Comet was built for this speedy look. The front overhang, long/thin tailfins, and afterburner style taillights make for the right place to start for a custom build. The two-tone red and silver is a thoughtful application. You see it in the way the red top portion dips low in the rear, and the bumpers and grille are painted silver to give the car a well-coordinated and modern look. Plus, pinstriping was used thoughtfully as the black provides a clear dividing line for the two-tone. The red pinstriping adds a nice detail up front. Add in the full-polished wheel set with half-moon covers, and this is a classic with true distinction.


The red returns inside, and now the black accenting of the exterior becomes the other major interior color. These two colors are especially nicely interwoven on the red seats with black inserts and piping. This has plenty of custom details to make this a nice driver, like cup holders and a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner. Plus, you'll love slipping into the bucket seat, grabbing the wood-rimmed sports steering wheel, and gazing at the crisp Dolphin gauges. And have you counted the gears on the Hurst shifter yet?


There's plenty of style in the engine bay as the red inner walls and supports funnel your attention to plenty of shine and an imposing black block. This 302 cubic-inch V8 is built for power with a four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and headers that feed a sweet-sounding dual exhaust. Plus, this has the right supporting components, like an aluminum radiator and a new distributor. You have the best in control as the upgraded five-speed manual transmission allows you to command the powerband. Plus, with disc brakes up front, traction bars in the rear, and Firestone Firehawk tires all-around, this speedy Comet offers good all-around control.


Power, distinction, and affordability rarely come together this nicely, so don't miss you chance at this Comet. Call now!
