Cool Old Machine: 1962 Mercury Comet

There is something supremely cool about a vintage Mercury Comet. It isn’t the fastest classic car around…with the stock 170 cubic inch inline-6 and automatic it is going to be downright slow…but car isn’t about reaching your destination, this car is about the experience of getting there. Find this 1962 Mercury Comet offered for $9800 in Huntington Beach, CA via craigslist.
