Make your best offer on this vintage 1971 Mercury Comet. with the new-fastback profile accentuating the long hood and short deck theme that created the Mustang. This car has all original and was garage kept for 30  plus years in your standard factory green with a black hard top. it has a clean look and you'll likely get more than a few folks asking for more information when you stop for gas. It's in tip top shape! It hasn't been modified and it's all original as it came out of the factory. Know there are a signs of use. the overall look is pretty darned nice. We like the black pinstripe that highlights the gentle curve of the fenders. There's a very clean. straight grille up front. correct 'Comet' script on the sail panels. and Chrome-out bumpers for an updated look. Believe me. this car will definitely get peoples attention.  



The interior is in excellent condition and I have to say that the seat covers and carpets are in the best shape for being a 45 year old car. everything else is original. It's basic. yes. but that's part of the appeal with cars like this. and a few minor upgrades make a big difference. There's a fat wood-rimmed steering wheel. for example. which adds a sporty look without changing the overall vibe. You also get a pair of round dials that are reminiscent of the Mustang's instrument panel and the markings are still clear and easy to read. Remarkably. the original AM radio remains in the dash. and in 1971. that was standard fare in the Comet. along with a heater and defroster and little else. The back seat is in excellent condition and is roomy enough for real-sized adults and there's a nice. big trunk that looks to be in excellent order.



Pop the hood and you'll see the original 260 cubic inch Straight 6. that gives this Comet its vintage credentials. It's nicely detailed under the hood. including the finned valve covers and matching air cleaner. as well as bright Ford Blue paint on the block. giving it a very correct look. You'll also find power steering on the options list. making this Comet easy to handle. It's backed by a C4 3-speed automatic transmission and original 8-inch rear end. so the components are rugged enough to put up with some fun with your standard exhaust. The floors show off years in a warm climate and the late-model Mustang wheels look exactly right on this vintage Comet.



You don't see one of these at every cruise-in and the low curb weight and strong-running V6 make it a ton of fun to drive. Looking for a nice vintage car to modify get into the game with something that'll stand out and doesn't cost a fortune. Email today!
