For Sale: 1965 Mercury Caliente in Wheat Ridge, Colorado

Vehicle Description

Simply stunning is the only way to describe this 1965 Mercury Comet Resto Mod. No expense was spared, or corners cut on this 2014 build. Just 4500 miles have been driven since the completion of this spectacular muscle car.

Drivetrain:

Starting with the power plant, 650hp 572ci Chevy crate motor powered through a Tremec TKO five-speed gearbox. A Ford 9-inch rear with 350 positraction complete the drive line. Cold air induction is provided by Spectre Performance with Wizard aluminum radiator cooling.

Undercarriage:

The frame is a 2x3 boxed rectangular configuration with front and rear suspension by Martz chassis. 12-inch Wilwood drilled and vented disc brakes are positioned on the front and 14-inch Wilwoods on the rear. Steering is provided by a power rack and pinion unit.

Interior:                                                              The interior sports a restored by Classic Instruments cluster with special tach built into the speedometer. An Ididit adjustable steering column makes entry for any size driver. A special 1966 Chevy Impala console is finished off with an aluminum shift plate. All seating is done in contrasting leather to the exact pattern of the 1965 Comet. The front buckets are 1968 Ford Torino.  This car DOES NOT have air conditioning or heating.

An immaculately restored example using many parts that combine together to create this unique resto mod. Perfect paint, and seams and construction, interior and exterior are tough to beat. A true show stopper!
