    Have any of you Comet fans ever tried to build a 1964 Comet Super Cyclone like this prototype ?

    I didnt know about this car.

    I like it...

    At some point I was thinking about putting '64 Mustang fastback roof on a round Falcon.
    This probably isnt a million miles from that...

    It was in Car Life too. I have the issue around here somewhere...Pretty high profile car at the time...

    I honestly always thought it ugly. The std HT roofline looks better IMO. Actually, I always thought the stock '64 Caliente was maybe one of the 3-4 best looking American cars of the sixties.

    I've had a picture of it in the garage and a Barracuda roof just waiting for the right Comet to come along. That car is just amazing.

    This thread seems to be garnering some interest, I'll try to dig out the Car Life article.

    That looks like a 66 Charger, the other one looks like a Barracuda, pfftt, MoPar wannabes :D

    All bullshit aside, all Comets from '61 to '65 were damn good looking cars.

    Here are some additional pictures of the Comet and a drawing found of a '63 Sprint with a Mustang Fastback roof.
