You do not see many Comets and Mavericks around, while in my opinion these make great hot rods and drag racers. The 1973 Mercury Comet build we are going to take a look at today is a great example. Check out ARMRASTLER’s quick walkaround video and see more below.
The Lamborghini Orange with Gold pearl looks amazing combined with tinted windows and Black graphics. The chrome wheels and trim retain the 1973 Mercury Comet old school appearance. The only thing I would change is the hood, but it is all about what makes the owner happy.
As you figured from the headline, this 1973 Mercury Comet is not all about the looks. It sports full roller 347 Stroker dressed with Bill Mitchell heads, COMP Cams full roller rockers, Holley 850 CFM Demon carb etc. The power is sent through Ford C4 with shift kit and 3.55 geared rear. Check out the video below to see the ’73 Comet burnning rubber.
