I maintain that if Batman wore red Underoos instead of black, this could have been the Batmobile for the TV show. :D

If the picture doesn't upload, this is the dumbest post ever...still might be.

Very nice S-22, or is it? Don't see the badge on front fender.
Is that the 'Franken' part? Like Custom w/ S-22 taillight panel? 8)

Thanks everyone!

It's not an S-22. It left the factory in Carnival red, 260, 4 speed, manual steering, manual brakes.

I called it FrankenComet because it was apparently "restored" once or twice in its life by previous owners, using whatever Ford parts would do the job. When I bought it, it had a 9 inch from a Galaxie (?), disc brakes from a Granada, Torino GT wheels, top loader from somewhere, and some well done but hideous custom interior. Now it has the engine and trans from a Fox body and what I think are Thunderbird seats, so even less Comet than before. It will have 65 Mustang steering and brakes as soon as I get time to do the work.

You have a great car!
Love the fact that its been built guys with a what will work attitude instead of a pocket full of cash spent on correct "nos" stuff. It appears that you will be carrying that on!
"Frank" is a great looking car, enjoy.

I gotcha! Had to do a double take on the taillight panel. Hard to tell at that scale.
Very clean machine and scoots pretty well w/ a roller engine 8)
