David Kelly’s 1963 Mercury Comet

“You should be in pictures” certainly applies to David’s Comet. And it has, in commercials and many photo shoots. David chronicles it all on Instagram @Dkcomet. When he’s not out pursuing photo ops and taking in all that is vintage, David works as a 3D Environmental Designer at AHM Brands.

The Comet has 142K miles and has always been a West Coast car. Originally sold new in Glendale, CA, David searched over 10 years to find it. It’s mostly stock and original. Adding to it’s allure is a survived crash with another Mercury, a ’93 Cougar, where the Comet sustained only minor damage but the Cougar was totaled. The fact that the Cougar was being driven by a DEA agent somehow fits the Comet’s Hollywood vibe.
