Condition & Features

People who don’t know performance may scoff at this 1973 Mercury Comet, but guys in the know understand that this neat coupe has a better power-to-weight ratio than the Mustang and the production figures are a fraction of the more famous pony car. Fast, rare, and affordable? Maybe it’s time to have a closer look at the Comet. The Comet’s lines have aged rather well, with the new-fastback profile accentuating the long hood and short deck theme that created the Mustang. Repainted a few years ago in basic black, it has a clean, purposeful look and you’ll likely get more than a few folks asking for more information when you stop for gas. Is it perfect? No, but go find another one that’s led an easy life like this one has. It hasn’t been modified and it didn’t require major surgery to get back into shape, and while there are a few signs of use, the overall look is pretty darned nice. We like the white pinstripe that highlights the gentle curve of the fenders and they didn’t shave or delete any of the original trim. There’s a very clean, straight grille up front, correct ‘Comet’ script on the sail panels, and blacked-out bumpers for an updated look. Believe us, this car will definitely get its share of second glances. The interior is in excellent condition and if we had to guess, we’d say that the seat covers and carpets are new, but everything else may very well be original. It’s basic, yes, but that’s part of the appeal with cars like this, and a few minor upgrades make a big difference. There’s a fat wood-rimmed steering wheel, for example, which adds a sporty look without changing the overall vibe. You also get a pair of round dials that are reminiscent of the Mustang’s instrument panel and the markings are still clear and easy to read. Remarkably, the original AM radio remains in the dash, and in 1973, that was standard fare in the Comet, along with a heater and defroster and little else. The back seat is in excellent condition and is roomy enough for real-sized adul
