Classic Car Overview

HIGHLIGHTS: Beautiful blue Comet Caliente, with those striking classic Comet body lines! One family owned since new! This example is a great value thatll rip up the roads just like back in the 60s! Ford small block V8 hooked up to a 4-speed manual transmission! BODY OVERVIEW: The body is remarkably straight, considering this car has not received a full restoration, and it shows that this car has been cared for over the years. The body lines are crisp and sharp, and this Comet is bound to turn some heads! Underneath, this car is showing some common rust repair patches in the floorboard. PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: Its been a few years since this Comet received a repaint, but it still looks good. Kept aesthetically true to original form, this Comet is sure to bring back some memories! The paint is in good condition showing normal wear, as one would expect for a car that has been repainted in the last several years. INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: Step inside this Comet and poof-its the 1970s again. The bench seats have been recovered in cloth with vinyl trimming, and the door panels have been done to match. Though the carpeting is beginning to show some age, this interior has all the earmarks of a car that has been kept up on and taken care of over the years. MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: A well-loved daily vehicle for most of its life, this Comet runs well and handles like a Comet Caliente should. Under the hood is a small block Ford V8 that sounds great! Upgrades and changes from factory have been kept to a minimum, but an aluminum radiator and a 4-bbl Holley Street Avenger carburetor are the most notable tasteful upgrades. While this car is not equipped with power steering, it is remarkably easy to handle and really gives you a feel for the road-something rather uncharacteristic of 1960s performance cars! WHAT YOULL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: The Comet Calientes had body lines like no Comet or Falcon ever before, and that really sets them apart. If youre looking for a car thats the same but different, this Comet sure fits the bill! WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: If youre looking for a top-notch show car, this isnt it. It is an old car that has been looked after over the years. DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? It does need a few minor repairs including the horn, blower motor, turn signals, oil & temperature gauges, radio, and the emergency brake. WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? Whether youre looking for a fun & unique driver-quality car to tinker with and cruise on the weekends, or a solid start to a next-level custom or restoration, this Comet is a great candidate for whatever you have in mind!
