Super Stock Mercury Comet 427

Tick the right options when ordering your new comet in 1964 and you could have an 427 jammed into the engine bay and the cool tear drop scoop so the bonnet will close
One was also the First nitro funny car raced by Jack Chrisman back in 1964
He was given the car by Fran Hernandez who ran Fords Super Stock and Factory Experimental drag teams at the time . heres a bit of the article the rest can be found here
The First Nitro Funny Car

At first glance, the Comet looked like every other Mercury Comet Super Stocker. Painted refrigerator white with only a sponsor name on the doors (Sachs & Sons Lincoln-Mercury, Downey , California ), the wheelbase and body location were stock, just like it came from the factory. The typical fiberglass bumpers, hood, front fenders and doors (all available for S/S and F/X competition), plus a gutted interior kept the weight down to about 2800 pounds. The engine was the FE 427 Ford (Mercury?) wedge, cross-bolted, side oiler Super Stock combination, with a few of Jack’s “extra goodies”. One of the goodies was a 6-71 GMC supercharger and Hilborn fuel injection (mechanical, not EFI back then). Another goodie was what was in the small Moon fuel tank. A 50/50 mixture of nitro and alcohol
The factory A/FX cars are sweet heres a link to one 1964 Mercury comet A/FX its in spanish but it has some nice photos

In 1965 they get the super cool funtioning ram air bonnet that has its intakes right on the front edge of the bonnet. Heres a altered wheel base1965 A/FX comet also in spanish but great photos

Hmmm.. that ram air intake would look good on the Xm
