That's a good looking little Comet Carl! I actually like the '62 better than the '60 and '61s. To me, the tail end is much better looking with the four small round tail lights, tail panel and fins.

Great looking Comet. I like the little extra paint touches on the side of the body.

As others before me have said, "very nice." I like the general vintage look to build. 

I agree, Very nice Carl.

Yes I like it. I went with my parents to look at a new one in late 61 or early 62. I think the "sporty" version was called the S-22. They did not buy it but I sure liked the bucket seats. I see you are a Falcon guy. So am I. had a 65 V-8 4-speed hardtop for a few years and sometimes wish I still had it.

Your right Phil, the sport model of the Comet line, introduced midway into the '61 model run was called the S-22. And this remained true in '62, and '63. In 1964 the S-22 was replaced by the Caliente, and later the Cyclone. In the intermediate Meteor line, the sport model was called the S-33. (Later the Canadian Meteors brought back that name for their sporty full-sizer.) The sporty full-size Mercurys (US) for '62 and '63 were S-55s. And full-size S-55s returned again in '66 and '67. Why S-22 and S-33, than skipping S-44 for S-55? I don't know?
