1962 Mercury Comet Custom Description:

1962 MERCURY COMET CUSTOM DAILY DRIVER with FENDER SKIRTS and 63,000 miles! This Super Groovy and Effortlessly Cool Mid Century Mercury Comet Custom was driven from Maryland to Florida 7 years ago by my husband with 45,000 miles on her, and she is currently STILL living and thriving in the sunny state of Florida. Current mileage is 62,978. We drove the car approximately 2,570 miles per year over the course of 7 years. Recent tune up and new fuel pump. We upgraded to an alternator 5 years ago. We've had the same mechanic do all tune ups and general maintenance on the Comet the entire 7 years. There is nothing much to report as far as mechanical issues with this car. She is reliable. We do tune-ups, we change the oil, we change spark plugs, we keep a pretty regular maintenance schedule and keep her driven, which is honestly the most important thing to do with old cars. Keep them JUICED and LUBED and TAKE THEM ON DATES and they will usually perform for you. It's common sense at its' BEST! We have not had any cosmetic work done to the Comet EXCEPT new steel floor pans were welded into front passenger and driver area by a professional welder a few years ago and he RULES so the floor pans are SOLID AF. We drive it mostly around our small beach town and on average put 2,570 miles per year on the engine. She can always be found parked right in front of our tattoo shop as theOBVIOUS HEAD TURNER, always drawing super cool clients with a taste for Mid Century through our front door. -Leather upholstery, Original Steering Wheel, Original Radio, -All dials, gauges, lights & turn signals work EXCEPT HORN does not work, but horns can be annoying so whatevs.COMPLETE set of Chrome Trim on the car...Some a little loose(that's what SHE SAID) but ALL THEREEXTRA collectible cosmetic/ornamental parts INCLUDED IN SALE ARE:-Extra set of super rare Hood Ornaments,-Extra set of door handles, just in case all of your door handles just mysteriously fall off one day you are READY -BRAND NEW WINDSHIELD in padded wrap ready to install whenever necessary, AGAIN...who knows what kind of ding dong ditch mutha might break it...RIGHT PEOPLE?-I have the 'U' in 'MERC RY' that sprawls across front of hood, which..NO LIE...took me 3 years of searching Ebay to find.-1 extra set of super rare BACK UP LIGHTS....YOU'RE WELCOME-1 extra set of tail lights,-BRAND NEW AFTER MARKET Black Loop *period correct* carpet kit ready to install,-AFTER MARKET oil pressure gauge was already installed on Comet,-Chrome FENDER SKIRTS are alive & kicking and looking RADICAL on the Comet like a perfect vintage dress against a set of traditionally tattooed legs. -There is RUST on the wheel wells, hood, trunk, and some window connections, nothing a decently skilled body work friend of yours can't take care of in trade for a pre-rolled or neck massage. -Back windows have trouble rolling up and down and we have not tried to fix it because we just didn't feel like it. -PLEASE SEE PHOTOS TO ACCOMPANY DESCRIPTION ANY QUESTIONS TEXT GERRY 850-543-2027 or TERI 850-543-4669NO QUESTION IS TOO SILLY A QUESTION TO ASK WHEN BUYING A VINTAGE CAR!!
