This survivor 1963 Mercury Comet Custom Two Door Wagon, 1 of 272 built is currently advertised on Hemmings. With low sales, this was the final year of the Mercury Comet Two Door Wagon.

There should be a SELF-DESTRUCT FEATURE here so that it cannot survive more than twelve hours.

It reminds me of an old chain-drive MACK...

Here is a larger picture of the 1956 Ford Ranch Wagon posted by 1931flathead. The other 56 Ford was a Courier with Windows.

Yes I like the Black one, is it a 64? I also like the little white 63. I am Partial to 63-65 Falcons, and Comets. I think they were and still are under-rated cars.

It's a '60, and I've had it for 30 years, but restored/modified it in 2007.

Kustom Komet,

You have a very nice Comet wagon there ! I noticed what looks like dual exhausts. What's under the hood ?

Here is a 1955 Ford Two Door Wagon thats showing lots of potential. The tailgate and rear section looks to be 57 Ford, plus it has the crown over the roof from a 1955 Crown Victoria. Can't wait to see the finished product.

I don't think the roof is '55 wagon. Looks like maybe a complete '57 Ford wagon roof. Also has unique '55 Fairlane style side trim that doesn't arc over the top of the front fenders, and a '56 Ford rear bumper with the oval exhaust outlets.

Sal,

It's got a mild 289/C4, a '63 Falcon V8 8 inch rear, and '65 V8 front suspension/steering with Granada spindles. Fun little cruiser, and just a bit better than the bolt action six banger it came with.
