1964 Mercury Comet A/FX Caliente at Bastrop Car Show

Written by Ken Altes

1964 Mercury Comet in Bastrop TX

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.

Old School, Hopped-Up 1950 Mercury Coupe in Austin

Written by Ken Altes

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.
