I just learned Mercury had a Lightning bolt in the Comet line, was this all aftermarket stuff? There is not a lot of info on the internet about this car. Is there someone in our club with knowledge of this car?
Looks like we (you and I) have figured out that the Lightning Bolt was a ’64 Comet built exclusively for drag racing. It ran in the A/FX class and a replica of the car can be seen at dluxhotrods.com under the “cars for sale” tab. Anyone interested in buying it can purchase it from them. All the info on the car is at the website as well. Maybe an IMOA member will bring it to Louisville!
