For Sale: 1962 Mercury Comet in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Scottsdale is happy to offer this funky 1962 Mercury Comet Station Wagon marketed on consignment with our Arizona showroom, located in North Phoenix. Back in the early 1960's the Interstate Highway System had just been completed and Americans were more eager than ever to pack the whole family into the car and hit the open road. This Mercury Station Wagon and many others like it helped families turn those dreams into reality by providing practical and affordable transportation. This vehicle has been restored over time to its current state as something that's good to drive or show in its "Hunter Green" exterior paintjob with faux wood panels. Tinted windows keep everyone comfortable on hot summer days and your belongings protected from peeking Toms- there's even the signature roll down rear window. Custom 17" Maxxim alloy wheels give this sensible station wagon some youthful character. Under the hood is a gas saving 200 CID Inline 6 cylinder engine that does give enough power to get this car down the road with purpose and the 3-speed automatic transmission was rebuilt around 1,100 miles ago according to the seller of this '62 Comet. You'll like the sound of this wagon thanks to exhaust headers feeding dual exiting pipes that help this trusty 6-cylinder run with the big V8s. Inside the 2-doors (which is more desirable than the 4-door wagons) you'll be greeted by Tan vinyl interior with bucket seating, a center console and Grant steering wheel as well as a custom B&M shifter for the transmission. The factory look is somewhat maintained by the gauge cluster but there are some aftermarket dials for water temperature, oil pressure and voltage. A retro-modern stereo has been added so you can enjoy your favorite tunes (or block out the noise of your passengers on that long weekend road trip!). This 1962 Mercury Comet Station Wagon has all kinds of character and we are excited to find the next owner of this rare ride! Stand out from the crowd and call our helpful and knowledgeable Sales staff today at (623) 900-4884 for more information on this sweet Mercury Comet or any of our other inventory for sale.
