1963 Comet -SOLD!

Postby rjones35 » Thu Oct 10, 2019 2:11 pm

1963 Comet Custom, factory v8 car. Has original rear end.  Its got new wiring with a Centech custom harness, front disc brakes from CSRP, new floors, 302/t5, with hydraulic clutch by Modern Driveline. The long block I bought used, it was "freshened up" before I got it - rings, bearings - its got a "thumper" cam, new high volume oil pump, new front sump pan. It's a little rattly,  but runs good. A lot of new parts -

High torque starter
Champion aluminum radiator
Electric fan
Mallory unilite
water pump, timing chain
Sanderson headers,
Aeromotive fuel system,
3 duece setup
custom made air cleaner
Flowmaster exhaust
gas tank 
front coil springs, perches, upper and lower control arms, shocks.
rear leafs and shocks.
New carpet.
Dash pad
tires and wheels
Subframe connectors
Probably more.....

Glass is mostly good, windshield has a little haze, a couple chips, and crack on the edge. Passenger side quarter window was replaced with plastic at some point. The trim is all there and in pretty good shape. Bumpers are there, not in the greatest of shape but possibly can be straightened? Seats are from a 65 (I think) mustang, factory center console. No backseat. Door panels are pretty trashed. No headliner. Body is overall in pretty good shape, but needs attention. Previous owner put in bondo - under the quarter windows, quarter panels and bottom of the fenders. Looks like it has a spray can paint job, looks okay from across the street. There is some rust under the battery tray and in the trunk along the quarters.  Considereing its 50+ years old its in excellent shape, but if you're looking for a perfect rust free body, this isn't it. It'll need some work. But if you're looking for a pretty cool old hotrod that runs good, always starts, doesn't get hot, and gets lots of looks, this is it.

Having a hard time loading pictures, I can send some if you want to see more.

Just got through strolling down memory lane reading through your build thread. You did a good job, and I liked your "I'll try it and see what happens" approach. Hope you told the new owner about us. I'd like to see where it goes from here. In your thread, you mulled over selling it back in '15 or '16 because you had finished the fun part of the build. Get you another one and share the fun part of that one with us again. :wink:

Thanks! Yeah, I went back and forth selling it/keeping it a few times over the years. It was lots of fun to learn as I went, and I thought it turned out pretty good. Loads of fun to drive and always got thumbs up and questions asking what it was!! The new owner already knew about build thread and had been watching it for a while as I went back forth on selling it.
