1964 Mercury Comet Caliente Convertible Additional Info:

Up for your consideration is a 1964 Mercury Comet Caliente convertible. There was just a little over 9000 produced in 1964 so it is fairly rare. It is 90% complete missing the radio surround, left rear quarter trim, lower drivers door trim, the trunk trim strip and trunk lock. I purchase it for a parts car for my other Comet but it is in to nice of condition. I may part it out if it does not sell. I believe everything else is on the car with a radio in the trunk. It has not been on the road since 1991 and is very solid underneath. The front and rear frame rails are in very good condition and not rotted out under the battery box. The torque boxes look very good and not rotted out like others. Under the car it looks very good compared to other cars of that year. The passengers between the front and rear seat has rusted through and is an easy fix. I have a picture of that spot. I do not have a title for the car and it is sold as is. The data door tag says that it is a 289, c4 and a 3.25 rear gear ratio and is in it's original color with bodywork done back in the day. It will need a restoration with most of the hard parts to find still on the car. I have not fired the motor, but it does spin easily. It is in my garage hence the crappy pictures. I can get pictures of any spot you need, just shoot me an email and I can have them within a day or two. The car is sold as is with no title. If it does not sell I may part out. I have tried to start it, but the starter is not making contact, just clicks. The car is sold as is and does not have a title. $500.00 deposit within 48 hours and paid in full within 7 days. I can hold the car for a week after the sale if need be. It does roll and the tires hold air to load on a trailer or transport truck. It does not run and drive.
