  • I drove a 72 Comet in high school and have been looking for another one for a couple of years now. I was able to pick up this Comet spring 2017. It is from California that had been sitting for the past 12 years in a garage. Technically, forth owner, but I bought if from someone who picked it up from the second owner's family and flipped it to me. It is a base model as basic as you can get. It was ordered without A/C (in California[​IMG]) and without even a radio. It has 59,xxx miles on it.

    When it arrived I found an envelope in the trunk. It had:
    *Possible original set of keys

    *Owners Manual
    *Consumer Information sheet (Acceleration/passing, Stopping, Tire size load capacity)
