This 1965 Mercury Comet Caliente lives up to its name with a
red-hot look. And there's even a hot V8 under the hood. But this
hardtop also knows how to help you keep you cool with the right
features - including the A/C interior.
The Mercury Comet had style. The front end has stacked headlights
with an aggressive forward-leaning look. The rear got a stylish
full-width taillight streak. And while other companies would use a
trim package to get some full-length aggressive lines in the
profile, Mercury stamped them right into the sheetmetal! Bright red
paint, full rocker trim, and proper Caliente badging are all part
of an impressive package. This hardtop even has some nice extras,
like the freshly chromed front bumper to really keep a shining
first impressing. And the Keystone Klassic wheels are a nice touch
for vintage performance.
The sea of red continues inside. Mercury's premium market position
is felt in the details, like the more intricate design on the seats
and door panels. They gave this one the right well-integrated
upgrades, like a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner and a
classic-style air conditioning bowing cold with modern R134a
refrigerant. It's built to be a better driver's classic, too.
That's why you have upgraded front buckets seats, a Grant sports
steering wheel, and a B&M Star Shifter.
1965 was the dawn of the famous 289 cubic-inch V8. While this Comet
Caliente was born with this displacement, today it showcases why we
really celebrate the upgradeable nature of theses hardy motors. It
includes performance goodies, like a Holley four-barrel carburetor,
a mid-rise intake, and headers that feed a rumbling dual exhaust.
It even has the right supporting pieces, like an MSD distributor
and an aluminum radiator. The result is a powerful and
strong-running classic. And the three-speed automatic transmission,
power steering, and wide radial tires make it a nice hardtop to
enjoy on the streets.
This Comet Caliente has the look and the features you love to make
one red-hot deal, so you know you don't want to miss out. Call
