a 64 comet trash heap followed me home

Postby Mach1ryan » Sat Jan 27, 2018 12:11 am

hi yall.

i recently came upon a 64 comet that for some reason i had to buy. the price was right, the car was ugly and old.... perfect. so i drug it home. The offender boarded my trailer as a ragged, stripped, rusty roller. when i started researching, i found the car to be a 6 cylinder car with seemingly undesirable suspension. at this point, it sits while i work on home improvement projects. i have a couple of ideas brewing but not quite sure what ill end up doing with it. no matter the decision, it will be done on a shoe string budget, and just to put a big smile on my face driving it around.

with that being said, i have a healthy 4.6 4v, and 3650 trans from a previous car i parted out, a welder, and a will to learn. i have other "reasonable" engine options available, and am considering as well.

Welcome aboard! Rocket's right, it will involve some major surgery and a lot of time, but we have folks that have gone far more radical and made it work. Like Dimmwatt, who put an entire Miata drive train in his 62 Comet. :shock:

Thanks fellas! That Miata-comet sounds awesome. Too bad the pictures are all blocked out or whatever by Photobucket.
