1964 Mercury Compact Car Ads

Mercury Comets had a bunch to crow about for 1964. Their endurance run of a 100,000 miles continuously broke literally hundreds of records and established the car as a tough and performance-minded auto.

Next, Comet sales rose 56% for the year—an amazing change. Sales were up from 133,623 in 1963 to 189,936. However, there was a bit of sllght of hand in the claim, since the Meteor which had been a stretched Comet was sent to the graveyard and the new chassis for Comet accommodated both the Comet and old Meteor.

This year also marked the introduction of the Cyclone performance model, which was equipped with the 210 HP 289 4-bbl V8.

Even so, Mercury's compact car beat the former year's sales by 6,083 units at 189,936 total.
