Re: Just purchased a 1962 trying to learn w/1st ever project car

Love everything about this car and project. 62 and 63 have the best chrome of all the years. You will make all kind of new friends. Not a day goes by I don't get at least one acknowledgement when I drive ours. Had two different people offer to buy it the last time I was in it. :o

Hate is a terrible word but I think it applies to the wheel and tire combo on that car!
Agree. Stock cyclone wheels look much better.

Re: 2021 Comet Gathering in Pigeon Forge TN

Mike,

Drop down to Sikeston on 55, then over to Paducah, KY and take I-24 into Nashville. On the north side, take Briley parkway (155) around to the NE and get on I-40 on the East side of town. Bada Bing, Bada Boom.

Re: Any Cometers in Indianapolis area?

Hope so, Jim. Looks like about the same six-ish hour drive. Will know closer to that date. Not sure about the Comet, but I know the rules. Rule 1, get there. Rule 2 bring a Comet if you can.

Lord willing and the creek don't rise I will be there with my Comet this year
Careful there, Mike. That's exactly what I posted in a quote last new year about the gathering... and that didn't work out so well ;)

Any Cometers in Indianapolis area?

Well, new year, new location. Wife and I moved to Indianapolis in 2019 and finally sold our house this Christmas. Meanwhile, Maverick moved West, and the Comet is in storage for a few months. Plan to get it here in Spring or Summer after I put a new top on.

So any Comet owners in the Indy area?

Re: Finally building my 64 Comet

to the carpets, we did the original, cut and sewn, loop, from Dearborn Classics. They were the ACC brand as I recall. We did cut and sewn because we had done some "custom" work on our floor pans (and by custom, I mean they weren't perfectly shaped). I was concerned that molded wouldn't sit flat some...

Love everything about it. Love the sound of that car, the father son aspect and the black and white classic photos. What a moment for you. :D

But if you want to compare... http://waldronexhaust.com/

I ordered my stock 64 exhaust from them and it was a perfect fit. One bracket wasn't right and they made good on it.

Re: 260 V8

Speaking as the driver of a 260, it's the BEST engine Ford ever made! Ok, but seriously, is the 260 all original or modified? Does it have a 2 bbl or 4 bbl? is there anything wrong with it? Why do you want to swap to the 302? Sure the 302 is going to make more hp and torque, but it all depends on wh...
