1963 Comet S-Twenty Two

This is listed for $850 buy-it-now on e-bay. Dang. If I had somewhere to park it I would buy it. It is in Americus Georgia and is mis-identified as a 1963 Ford Falcon.

It has air conditioning, bucket seats, and padded dash.

Look at the word "Comet" in the middle of the dash. Look at how they spelled out "S-Twenty Two" on the glove box. Look at the chrome knobs and the fancy instrument panel. This would be a nice car.

I'm wondering what the extra springs are on the front shocks...

The Comets really do have a level of sophistication that our Falcons do not have. The script and other chrome details are top drawer.

Those are weird springs... Good eye Roger. Maybe coil-overs to support the extra weight of the A/C compressor. You would think the weight reduction caused by the rusted away battery tray would have been enough.

For that price it has a lot going for it.
