    Interesting driver, there are good and bad MII front end kits and it'd be worth knowing what's in there.

    Someone so desperate to keep it a sleeper that they kept 4 bolt wheels. I wonder if the front end is 4×4.5 (like the car was originally) or 4×4.25 (like Mustang IIs were from the factory)….

    Any '61 Comet S-22 is rare as it was their 'sporty' bucket-seat optional upgrade for a very basic economy car, like the Falcon Futura or Corvair Monza in '61. And, yes, an amazing sleeper!

    Step 1) buy this car on the cheap
    Step 2) rip out SBC
    Step 3) Install 5.0L Coyote V8
    Step 4)..?…
    Step 5) Profit

    Also, point of order, isn't this just a Comet? As in, not a Mercury Comet, but just a standalone Comet before it got swept under the Mercury rug? I remember reading that it was intended to be an Edsel but by the time it was released, Edsel was no more. So they sold it under the Comet brand name. I was reminded of this because there isn't any Mercury badging on the car above.
