Intriguing 1964 Mercury Comet A/FX Caliente factory drag class car with the 427 cu.in./425 hp V-8 — At least, that’s my best guess.
The FX stood for Factory Experimental, a class which allowed manufacturers to fit the largest engine available and alter the body of a production car. The letter A refers to the engine size; there were also B/FX and C/FX classes.
Custom 1951 Mercury Tudor Sedan with LS2 engine, 1949 Buick Roadmaster taillights and rear bumper, grille from 1953 Desoto, front bumper from 1949 Mercury, with bags to lift it off the road. The seats are from a 1949 Lincoln Cosmopolitan upholstered by Sean Johnston, owner of Fat Luckys.
This most desirable 1950 Mercury Coupe retains it’s flathead V8 but has vintage performance parts on it. An absolute treasure, one of my favorite Austin cars. Mercury Charlie has since moved to SW Austin.
