We all know the high value of the 2 door Comet sedan doors :lol:

Good luck and hopefully they will find it.

We're lucky here to have several stations within a couple of miles of my house with 90 octane ethanol-free gas. That's what I put in the Comet and all my small-engine tools like lawn mower, chainsaw, etc.

JIM..I put 87 in my comet,,,I tuned it yrs ago to run on that cheap gas..it starts and dies good,,runs cool,just never gives a problem....put the gear drive in way back in the 90's and have not never touched it since... and I timed it by ear and drove it and adj till it was where I wanted it..if I was to ever super tune it and maybe start using better gas,,,,I might be SHOCKED ! but for it's purpose ,,it will stay as is.....good luck.........pop

That double sucks! will Greyhound reimburse you for all the money that you're out? You would think they would need some ID to get the door, I dont see how someone could be ready for that.Hopefully it will turn up, perhaps a package mix up,someone got the wrong package.

Fortunately the lady I spoke to at Greyhound customer service was very polite & tried to be as helpful as possible (after she confirmed it was not a prank call & I was who I said I was!). The seller sent me a pic of the door all boxed up so I e-mailed that to Greyhound to help them locate the box, they are hoping it is sitting in a distribution warehouse nearby, so I'll keep my fingers crossed! In the meantime I'll take my frustrations out by hammering on my old door, by the time I feel better it will probably be pretty straight! :D

My dad had a 28 Model A roadster rumble seat lid shipped from the mid-west to Atlanta back in the late 60's. It was never seen again once it left the seller's custody. It shipped motor freight boxed up in a wooden crate. :roll:
