Ronald Grants 1963 Mercury Comet


Here is another beauty from Ron Grant it is a 1963 Mercury Comet S-22 Convertible. The S-22 is the Deluxe model, with 6 tail lights, S-22 badging on the body and glove box, and a chrome center console.  Everything on this vehicle looks original with the exception of the 14 inch steel rims and a new set of 14 inch Tiger Paw tires. This car is a real head turner and runs like new. Ron said it is so safe and reliable, he would have no problem driving it cross country to New York and back. Only 5717 of this model were ever made.

This car is a multiple award winner, including a Top Ten Best of Show winner at this year’s TMPCC Annual Car Show at CBS Studio Center on July 4th.Ron said he has a very long list of things that were done to the car including the installation of 3 point seat belts.The car has a 170 cubic inch 6 cylinder engine with an automatic transmission.The AM radio and steering wheel were completely rebuilt.IMG_1628 IMG_1671 IMG_1674 IMG_2230Old Rides Rock Template
