The History of car: This car was purchased “Brand New” off the showroom floor by my grandparents. My grandparents where getting to the point of not feeling comfortable in driving anymore due to their age. At about the same time my Mom had her car stolen in Texas. So at that point they gave this car to her on stipulation that if she didn’t need or want it anymore the car would come back to me (family). Two years ago my mom called me to come get the car because she purchased a new vehicle. At this time I’m a single guy and have way too many vehicles & toys. So with that being said this car is for sale. I saved the best for last. This car has only 96,342.9 original miles.
Note: Since the photos, the Headliner & seats (front & rear) have been redone in factory colors & spec’s. Power steering ram boot has been replaced as well.

You gotta love sleepers. This 1965 Mercury Comet Caliente hardtop might not technically be called a sleeper since it is a high-performance version of the midsize Mercury of the era.
