What you see here for sale is a Real Rare Find a Medium Aqua Metallic
(Sales Name Trafalgar Blue) 1967 Mercury Comet Caliente 2 Door Factory (Same Body as a 1966/67 Ford Fairlane GT)  - this is a C Code 289 Windsor V8 Car, with C4 Automatic Transmission , 8" Diff with Power Steering & Power Brakes  !!!

 I bought this car in Sheridan California - the car has never left California - It was built in Los Angeles & sold new in Oakland CA - Sheridan is about 100 miles away from Oakland  !!!

It Runs and Drives and it looks like it might have had a later model 302 Windsor installed in it at some stage - It has been sitting for a good while - so will need to be checked thru mechanically for sure   !!!

  It Can be Registered in all States a Left hand Drive - I have the Import Approval Permit etc .

  The Body is 99% Rust Free - I did find one little hole in drivers floor pan which just needs a little patch (or same floor as XW /XY Falcon so floor panels are available here)  and the drivers door has two little rust holes on the corners of the outer skin - patch panels are available for Falcons here and is the basically the same door  -  it does have a few dents and scrapes around the place - I had my panelbeater go around it today with a hammer and dolley and he knocked out all the main ones - is definiteley going to needs some more panel work to make it nice again - but its a good base to start with. 

The Paint is buggered - it has been painted only 1 x time over the original paint - previous owner was planning on painting it before I brought it and had sanded a few areas and left some bare metal - which in time had got some surface rust on - I went around it t day with a Wire Buff and cleaned up all the areas - rust killed it and put a coating of Inox on it to hold it from rusting anymore - sorry doesnt look good in photos - but will make a nice body with just a little work - main thing is it not a rusty old piece !!!

It does need a Windscreen - but its also the same as a XW XY Falcon and Freely Available here from any glass place- All the other Glass is is in Good Condition    

The Interior is going to need everything - Good thing is Dearborn Classic or Macs stock everything you would ever need from Upolstery kits to Door Panels etc etc  !!!

  Its getting impossible to find Mercury Fastbacks these days anywhere - Let alone a real Rare Colour Combo Caliente - that will seat 6 People No Problem !  - Will Make Great Sunday Car - or Great Candidate for a Classic Race Car

Note - Last 2 Pics show how good this car could look restored

This Car is located on the Gold Coast Now   -  book your inspection before anyone else - this is a must see car  !!
