My 1969 Mercury Comet Sports Coupé, Today Reaches its first 40 Years of Non-Stop Work & Run History ... ... My Mercury has been Part of the Family since New, my Dad purchased it on Spring, 1969; and I came on it the day I was Born in 1975 ... After lots of Family Memories and Tons of Photos, Travels Videos, etc, Together; makes this MuscleCar to be a True Part of the Family, is somehow like my "Brother" ... I Named it "Herbie" when I was Child... so many Memories together makes this classic, Priceless!
Now after 40 years and more than three full Turns (and counting) on the Odometer, it still Runs like a Champ!
Here you can See "Herbie" next to my Former White Wagon,
which Now is Modified and known as the "BumbleBeast"
Here you can See "Herbie" parked outside the House,
and my Former White Wagon, inside the Garage:
Here you can see "Herbie" Parked in front of
my yellow "Loyale 2.7" (Now Dead - Background Story here) Project Wagon:
Much More Photos in my USMB Photo Album:
I've upgraded it with Front Disc Brakes, a Brake Booster (Subaru, by the way), Chromed Engine Parts (Such as Head Cover, etc...), Under Body anti Rust Paint, Body Paint, a "Yamaha" Stereo, etc... Also I managed to "Made" (with the help of a Friend who owns a Metal Casting Factory), a Piece for the Engine: The Water Inlet (Where goes the Thermostat) is now Made of Thick Brass, instead the Weak one that Ford does (Made of Manganese?), which somehow trend to get destroyed after a couple of years of use.
It Runs Great on its Manual Trans and Being just 250 Cui (4.1L) 6 Cyl. is economic to Drive for a Full Sized MuscleCar Coupe.
I Just Wanted to Share our Celebration!
