Flynn – 1965 Mercury Comet Caliente


Hey everybody! I’d like to introduce you to Flynn.

Flynn is a 1965 Mercury Comet Caliente powered by a 289 V8 with a 2-barrel carburetor and a cruise -o-matic automatic transmission. As you can see from the pictures the body is in pretty good shape with only a few minor parking lot chips. If you look closely at the hood you’ll notice that it was recently painted and there’s a few minor imperfections that need to be buffed out. You’ll probably also notice that the wire wheel hubcaps are not original for the car. I believe they came from a late 70’s or early 80’s Mercury Gran Marquis but they are still in pretty good shape and add a bit of elegance to the car. The tires have just been replaced along with all the rear spring bushings, both lower control arms and the starter. The brakes have been serviced as well. The interior shows normal wear with some split seams and one minor burn hole in the front seat. The rear seat is in good shape. The factory radio does not work but an aftermarket Sony CD player & receiver have been installed under the dash. The dash itself is in good shape with the exception of one crack due to extended exposure too the sunlight. The head liner is in tact but the dome light is inoperative and the cover for it is broken, 2 items we are still planning to address. The carpeting is in better than average shape for its age. The trunk area is solid as are the floors as you will be able to see from the photos as well.The car drives well and accelerates & brakes as it should. Many people are not aware of the 2 different drive positions on the shifter for thee cars. Normally D1 is selected for the best performance. If D2 is used the car will start off in 2nd gear. This setting is there from the factory to help in slippery or muddy situations.

Now Flynn is officially sold but if this is the type of car you are looking for please still feel free to contact us a or call us at 905-537-3673 and we’d be happy to help you!
