    I rescued a 2 owner 1973 comet from a man in Lubbock, TX in 2017 for 3200. My buddy and I worked on her for four years. We ripped every thing under the hood out and installed a mustang II suspension with a crate 302. Matched the paint of the interior to the engine. Put all kinds of goodies in her for a grand total of 17k. Here are some photos.

    Very, very nice work, gentlemen.
    Please tells us some of the stories of this super-sweet Mercury.
