Built Stroker: 1973 Mercury Comet GT

If the Ford Maverick is the little known step brother of the Mustang, then it’s cousin the Mercury Comet is even more obscure.  The Comet GT trim level was the muscle car trim package that upped the ante with the 302 V8 engine.  These cars were originally conceived as import fighters, but in reality duked it out for sales with the Chevy Nova and Dodge Dart…and they make a nice platform for a V8 cruiser today. Find this 1973 Mercury Comet GT offered for $13,200 in Tampa Bay, FL via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
