For Sale: 1964 Mercury Comet in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

This 1964 Mercury Comet has a cool style all of its own. It has a fuel-injected V8, the right comforts inside, and a great look on the outside that mixes vintage lines with modern flair.

The Comet had a new level of style in '64 that really wanted to bring substance to its premium market segment. The grille seems inspired by the Lincoln Continental; the sheet metal has a sweeping line stamped into the profile; and the three-element taillight panel is pure '60s cool. And while this added substance to the compact segment, this car also likes to utilize its smaller and lightweight characteristics for a better power car (just like the Ford Falcon or Chevy Nova, but more upscale.) While we'll get to the motor in a moment, you can already see this one was upgraded for added speedy style. The shaved door handles, bright dual exhaust tips, top-mount side mirror, and polished American Racing Torq Thrust wheels all give this more attitude. And the modern graphite metallic paint is the ideal color/finish to uniting the power and sophistication elements of this Mercury.

The interior has been redone in black and gray that goes well with the exterior. The cloth inserts in the seats and overall comfortable feel will be inviting to everyone. But really, this car focused on the driver. You have upgrades like the front bucket seats, a Grant sports steering wheel, B&M shifter, and AutoMeter Pro-Comp auxiliary readouts. Plus, the hand-held controller on the dash is a reminder that there's something special under the hood.

This Comet was built at the dawn of the best small block era at Ford, but this 302 cubic-inch unit would be years away when this one came off the line in '64. Not only does it have an upgraded displacement, but it's a fully-built package. It includes a mild cam, upgraded polished intake, finned Edelbrock valve covers, a matching air grabber, an MSD ignition package, and long tube headers feeding the dual exhaust. The V8 is topped with a FiTech electronic fuel injection system for the best in power and consistency. It's the kind of driver's classic that wants you to feel the road, but you also have the right features, like the three-speed automatic transmission and modern Goodyear tires.

Power, distinction, and affordability rarely come together this nicely, so don't miss your chance to catch this Comet. Call today!!!
