1960 Mercury Comet 4 Door Station Wagon For Sale

1960 Mercury Comet 4 Door Station Wagon
Located just outside Tunbridge Wells, East Sussex.
Who you gonna call? Not this, it’s not the ghostbusters car! But if you want to carry a metric f*** ton of stuff or have a yank that doesn’t need shares in BP to run you’ve come to the right place.
This is a genuinely rare car, only 18, 000 produced in 1960, this car was built on the 27th June 1960 making it a fairly early car. I’ve seen 1 other 1960 station wagon for sale in the states and that was a year ago. You are unlikely to see another one, ever. Under the skin it is a Ford Falcon so easy to get many parts for and they don’t cost the earth either. Cheap to insure and valued at £20, 000.
It has a rebuilt 144 cui straight six engine, still being run in, and the gearbox is a 3 speed column change manual. Engine is not numbers matching but is correct for the car. Brakes have been upgraded to a dual circuit system with all new hard and flexi lines, brake shoes were almost new upon inspection last year.
Custom centre console made to house gauges as well as additional switches for screen wash, fan, tailgate and tacho. The tacho is a temporary measure while the engine is being run in fyi. Lower tailgate trim handmade and painted to match, was missing when I got the car.
Paintwork isn’t perfect, but she’s 60 years old and you won’t be perfect at that age either. It was in a barn in North Wales for 5 years prior to my ownership. Polishes up well but has to odd blemish here and there.
Interior is in good shape and had been re-upholstered in the states, to make it perfect I would suggest the headliner needs replacing but that’s it.
I registered the car and am the first UK owner. I’ve owned the car for 2 years and enjoyed owning it and taking it to local events and even Players Classic 2021.
I don’t want to part with it as I’ll never find another, but I’m looking to free up funds and space. I have loads of photos which I'm more than happy to send over. Would make an excellent promo vehicle or weekend cruiser. Viewings are welcomed and any questions feel free to contact me on here or on the details below, if I’m unable to pick up please leave a message and I’ll get back to you asap. Open to px/ swaps but would prefer cash.
