I was at the Spring Carlisle PA event last weekend which is one of the largest events around. Spent several hours going up and down the aisles. Did not see any 64/65 Comet parts and there were hundreds of cars for sale and never saw one Comet. There were thousands of people there, our hobby is not dead!

Most of the parts for Comets that I have found at swap meets have been from sellers that haven't got a clue of what they came off of. Most times I never see any parts for 64-65 cars.

When I bought my Comet the guy had a factory Cyclone fiberglass hood in his garage. Along side the crites hood. He wanted $500 for the factory FG hood and since that was pretty much half of what I was paying for the Comet I got the crites hood for a extra 200. Still kick myself for not getting th factory hood :(

And to be fair if my car was a Cyclone I would more than likely put the Caliente side trim on it.

Every morning and evening I search the local craigslist for 65 Comet stuff, a couple times a year may see something.

I was at the Charlotte auto fair earlier this month and saw nothing for Comets, any year. Last year there was one 65 Caliente for sale, and I saw a few emblems in one booth. There were a few Falcons and Falcon parts, and tons of Mustang stuff and cars. Lots of 50's and 60's Chevys. My son-in-law is building a 53 Chevy truck rat rod on a S-10 frame, and there were at least three vendors there ranging from a mom-and-pop 20 ft trailer to tractor-trailer rigs that opened up like a store front where you could buy just about anything you wanted in the way of re-popped body panels, trim, etc. for 49 through 56 Chevy trucks. You could practically build one from scratch from the re-pop stuff! I saw a couple of Falcon replacement floor panels, but nothing Comet. :(

I don't have the Caliente fender emblems on mine, I lost one years ago when I had it apart for paint. Never worried about replacing it. People at car shows ask me if it is a Caliente, which surprises me. You hardly ever see these cars around, yet a few people still remember the models. Must be the side trim that people remember.

I'm with you on that one Pops!
About the only thing that bugs me is when someone stuffs a chevy engine in a Ford or vise versa.

Sorry for sending your build thread into the infield Johno :| :|

Love the badge and the personalization. There is a couple of cars on here that give me inspiration and your car is one of them. That is one cool comet you built and it just keeps getting cooler!!!!
