This 1965 Mercury Comet is a very custom coupe with a wicked style all of its own. With a custom paint theme, nice fuel-injected V8 power, upgraded suspension, and the control of the upgraded five-speed, you're looking at something that's powerful, cool, and distinctive... all for an affordable price.

Far rarer and a little more interesting than its Ford Fairlane cousin, this Mercury Comet already has appeal. In fact, the extra premium touches of the Mercury are great to show off like how the headlights are integrated into the fender design, bright chrome bumpers, and a more intricate grille. But that's just the beginning of what makes this custom coupe special. The green paint has the cool 1960s vibe, except they never gave you that kind of deep metallic finish from the factory. It instantly announces this is something quite different. So do the shaved door handles and the full custom rear end with LED taillights. It also likes to show off a bit of performance with vintage speedy style upgrades, like the Cyclone-style dual scoop hood, smoothie wheels, and the rocker stripe that matches the white roof. The rear fenders are even custom contoured and shortened 6 inches so you can really see the extra wide rear tires. It's all about a package that sets the tone for people to expect something far from factory.

Pop the remote door openers for your first surprise. Yes, this hardtop has been set up for suicide doors! And because people will be staring at this cool custom detail, they even made sure that the door panels continued the car's green and white theme. Once inside, you'll see a full custom package built to be a mix of comfort and speed. The front seats are Mastercraft racing seats. There's a bracer bar directly behind these to mount the five-point harnesses as well as add strength to the body. Behind these are a stylish TMI bench. You have great features like an armrest center console, cup holders, and a Blaupunkt AM/FM/CD stereo. This is joined by great performance upgrades, like the Dakota Digital gauges, EFI touchscreen controller, and a Hurst shifter with more gears than the factory ever offered.

While the green is dominant color of the exterior, the engine bay will be known for its bold blue. The long air topper and matching ribbed valve covers let everyone know this is something special. It's a 289 cubic-inch V8 built with Air Flow Research performance heads and a custom set of headers feeding a very straight dual exhaust. Plus, the Holley Avenger electronic fuel injection system allows you to dial-in your ideal performance right from the driver's seat. This motor even has the right supporting components, like an HEI ignition and Be Cool aluminum radiator. You have the best in control over this upgraded powerhouse with the upgraded five-speed manual transmission. In fact, speaking of control, take a look at the undercarriage photos. There you'll see great upgrades, like the tubular A-arm front suspension, subframe connector for added strength, and traction bars. There's even front disc brakes with drilled and slotted rotors for superior stropping power.

The sale comes complete with build receipts and restoration photos. It all proves this an awesome amount of custom build for the money. So if you want a cool hardtop like no other, don't miss this Comet. Call today!!!
