Description:

''60s nostalgia is red hot right now, and if you''re going to go big, you may as well build the ultimate Mercury gasser. This one also boasts the best of both worlds, as this incredible machine is one that you can actually drive on the street. Build as a street tribute to a race car, this one features an NOS 427 Cammer, all the usual gasser tricks, plus a few bits of modern technology. This 1965 Comet is AWESOME. Just the paint and bodywork alone must have taken months to finesse into their current show-stopping condition. Building a gasser style car is no easy task, because you''re not just bolting together hardware, you''re re-creating an entire era. The Comet bodywork was expertly straightened and finished to concours levels and it''s simply off-the-charts nice. All the right touches are there, from the nostrils on the leading edge of the hood to the nose-up attitude, to the 427 SOHC emblem airbrushed onto the decklid. Authentic-looking lettering was applied to the flanks, as if it was ready to roll of the trailer and down the track next Saturday, except it''s so pretty you might be afraid to really open it up. Inside, it''s finished with stock door panels and custom buckets fitted inside a full cage that improves both safety and structural strength. The original dash was restored, and all the factory instruments are still keeping tabs on the engine. Even a stock steering wheel and center console were retained, although the 4-speed transmission is now shifted by a slick T-handle setup with line lock control. RCI harnesses have been included for both driver and passenger, but there is no back seat, which has been replaced by beautifully fabricated sheetmetal that houses the modified rear suspension and oversized slicks. The neatly finished trunk offers a competition fuel cell and a relocated battery, perfect for planting those slicks when you turn the Cammer loose. And that 427 cubic inch single overhead cam engine is the whole reason for this car''s existence. Fully rebuilt with correct NASCAR crank and rods, this is quite possibly the ultimate Ford engine. How much power? Nobody really knows but it was quietly acknowledged to be somewhere north of 650 horsepower. Dual quads give it a ''60s high-performance look, and there''s just no mistaking those gorgeous cast valve covers. Note how neatly finished the engine bay is, with most of the wiring and plumbing hidden on the inside of the firewall to keep things sanitary, along with those cool fenderwell headers that dump right behind the front wheels. The chassis was built for combat, featuring a Jericho 4-speed feeding a narrowed 9-inch full of 4.11 gears. Four wheel discs keep it safe at the big end, but every single component is race-grade and ready to rock. Even the rolling stock is straight out of the ''60s for a perfect look. The only real question is whether you''re man enough to really let this one run. This street tribute will look incredible parked at your local show and tearing down the streets, but if you''re brave enough, it''ll also be a hit at the nostalgic drags. Even at this price, it''s a screaming bargain just to get that Cammer engine! Call today! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom.
