Hello everyone,

My dad used to own both the cyclone and caliente versions of the 1965 Mercury Comet. I am looking for a 1965 Mercury Comet model to give him for Christmas. I have looked high and low for such a thing but from everything I have seen it is no longer being produced. I don't have connections to help me find such a thing so if anyone out there can help me out or put me in touch with someone who can help me make this happen I would be incredibly grateful.

Thanks~

I can't help for this Christmas but Moebius Models have a new tool 65 coming next year.

From what I've found, there has never been an actual kit for the '65 before. There have been '65 bodies, then you would buy a '64 or '66 kit for the rest of the parts. Here are links for hard top and convertible, but I didn't follow on to see if the bodies are still available.

They send you on to The Resin Realm for these bodies.

You are better off waiting for the Moebius kit.

Resin Realm is a very reputable store, I bought a lot of kits and resin from them myself. R&R (no relation to Resin Realm) products, however, are really hit-or-miss. The casting is quite thick and there will be a lot of fitment issues. They will require a lot of work and are definitely not recommended for someone new to resin.

BTW Ray Parson, the proprietor of R&R, passed away in April this year. I don't know if their product are still available.

Yeah, I'll probably buy ten of the Mobius kits when they come out. Keep a couple for any grandkids that might come along. And the reset to try and recreate my car in the various forms it took.
