    Melanson Motors is proud to offer this one of a kind 1965 Mercury Comet . This was an Arizona car its whole life until imported to Ontario. The Arizona desert created incredible patina on this original paint Mercury. This is a true patina car and not a rusty car at all. This Comet has absolutely no rust underneath and not a single bubble or blister to be seen on the body. The seams, edges, and gaps are excellent. It has plenty of chips, scrapes and wear which give it a patina look that cannot be duplicated. We think it is super cool knowing that this car is full of character that takes 60 years to create. The lettering was done by artist, Rollie Guertin who is considered the best around. The old looking lettering and natural patina give the car a weathered nostalgia drag race look. This car has a strong running 302 small block featuring an aluminum intake manifold, stainless valve covers, an aluminum radiator, a Holley 4 barrel carburetor and headers. It has a smooth shifting C4 automatic transmission and an 8 inch spooled rear end. The car starts easily and drives great. The dual 2.5 inch stainless steel dual exhaust gives the car a nice rumble. 
    This Comet has a beautiful bright red interior featuring a vinyl bench seat, original style dash, bright red headliner and red carpet. Auxiliary gauges are installed below the dash, a B&M automatic floor shifter has been installed in place of a column shift. The passenger side dashboard above the glove box has been signed by legendary hot rod builder Jimmy Shine. 
    Underneath, the car has original floors with no patches. The floors have been painted black and are very clean. Factory pinch welds are present along the rocker seams and under the quarter panels.
This is a great opportunity to purchase a one of a kind muscle car full of character!
