64 Comet Caliente
« on: January 07, 2016, 03:00:54 PM »
Had somebody asking about my other project in another post so figured I would just show the album here

Its a 64 Mercury Comet Caliente that my father bought for me when i was 15
currently been doing some restoration and upgrades on her that include brake rebuild, rack and pinion conversion, full new rewire, 289 hipo exhaust (remanufactured copies of the 65 shelby mustang manifolds and side exit exhaust with h pipe) hurst floor shifter (the column shift got so loose on me she almost ran through the back of the garage when i was adjusting the timing and she fell into reverse) and pretty much making the under hood look brand new.

The pictures are a mess and in no particular order but if you are interested in the project check out the album

Thanks for posting the pictures - very cool car.  I love those old Mercury's because they had so much chrome on them!

you arent joking.   my only saving grace on this car is that I have all of the chrome.   Only thing missing is one of the "C" emblems on the quarter panel.   lost it when i trailered her to los angeles from new mexico.   Im still trying to find one that some goober on a certain internet auction site doesnt want 40+ bucks for
