Vehicle Description

Up for sale in our Detroit Showroom is a 1963 Mercury Comet Gasser named The Instigator. A gasser is a type of hot rod originating on the dragstrips all around the United States in the late 1950s and continued until the early 1970s. In the days before Pro Stock, the A/Gas cars were the fastest stock-appearing racers around. Gassers are based on closed body production models from the 1930s to mid-1960s, which have been stripped of extraneous weight and jacked up using a beam axle or tubular axle to provide better weight distribution on acceleration though a raised stock front suspension is common as well. This Gasser hasn't had much weight reduction done having the power hydraulic tilt front end which contains the 350 CID Chevy small block and TH 350 transmission. This dominant duo has less than 500 miles on the build and can rip pavement apart with one stab of the gas pedal. From a dead stop, the posi traction rear end with a 3.50 gear launch you forward like every strip of pavement is a dragstrip. The paint on this Gasser looks amazing and is completely custom throughout. The interior is a very clean and factory looking vinyl with a Hurst shifter and a few additional gauges that provide great comfort while manning this machine. If you have always wanted that attention grabbing ride that has left its footprint in automotive history, you need to drive a Gasser. There is no feeling that can compare to the thrill ride of moving a nostalgic monster through the streets.
