One Owner: 1961 Mercury Comet

The Mercury Comet was an up market version of Ford’s popular Falcon compact sedan and rode on a slightly longer wheelbase and had a nicer interior. The Comet was initially launched to be part of Ford’s Edsel lineup, but with the failure of the Edsel marque, the Comet was sent to the Mercury dealer with only Comet badging. Today’s example has a simple 6-cylinder engine and a manual three-speed transmission shifted on the tree. Find this 1961 Mercury Comet offered for $7500 in Ontario, CA via craigslist.
