Mercury Comet 1965 images

The Mercury Comet, sedans made from 1960 through 1965 are on a stretched (by 5″) Ford Falcon platform. Stacked headlights are a new addition in ’65, as is the peppy 200 CID 6 cylinder engine, now putting out 120 HP (89 kW) @4400 RPM using a one barrel carburetor. The V8 option for ’65 is the 289 CID and with the two barrel delivers 200 HP (150 kW) @4400 RPM. The basic transmission is a column mounted 3 speed manual or the optional 3-speed Merc-O-Matic.

    Cool cars straight six or V8, makes little difference in daily driver, I’d prefer the 200 in. six, I’be owned three of them through the years and they are very reliable, easy to maintain and good for a few hundred thousand miles. My older nephew had a ’65 V8 coupe, bucket seats, console a fine first car for him.
