CC Outtake: 1962 Mercury Comet – Stylin’ Skirts


I was just checking out Google Street View to see where I’m meeting Lily tonight after work. Delighted to find excellent photos of this fine ’62 Comet nicely appointed with custom fender skirts and hubcaps.  Darn near the same as the AMT 3-in-1 model kit must have had. In other words, it’s somebody’s full-scale model car. More views after the jump.


Venetian blinds on the rear window! And is that a bit of pin striping on the trunk lid? Too bad Google’s anonymizing blur hides the back end.


Finally this view confirms it’s a ’62. Stylin’ sweet car, don’t you think? Ever climbed into your 2013 Googlemobile and gone on a virtual cruise for CCs?
