Whatever the engine under the hood, it’s a sharp bench-seat, column-shift-auto car that looks ready to cruise. From the seller’s description: Oddly, our sources for 1968 Mercurys show the 302 as the base V-8 engine that year (Fords could still get a 289 in 1968), but this 1968 Mercury Comet coupe for sale on Hemmings.com has a C-code 289, the correct engine code in the VIN, and apparently a Marti report to back it up.
This 1968 Mercury Comet with 65,000 actual miles is something that you don’t see often. Most recognizable would be the 70’s and 80′ style with them being of the smaller variety but this one is a full size, hardtop beauty. Powered by a 289ci engine and a 3-speed automatic transmission, this will get you there in great fashion as the pairing runs flawlessly. Turn the key and go. We have the Marti Report in hand and of course comes with the car. A couple of interesting findings on the report caught our eyes. The color of the car which is Onyx (Black) on top of Glacier Blue was one of only 12 with these paint codes and one of only 11 with these paint and trim codes. If you do the math, it might be one of a few or one of one left on earth with the fore mentioned criteria. ????
