Service Dealer Repair Form

1961 Comet Letter

This is a letter sent to potential Comet customers detailing the new 1961 Comet. Although it is not dated it has to be a 61 since it points out it has a automatic choke which started in 61 and it calls out a visit to your Mercury-Comet dealer. You would visit your Mercury dealer starting in 62.

Origional Vintage Photo's of a 61 Comet

These are two photo's of a 61 Comet. These look like they were taken with a Brownie Camera. On the back of the Comet in the top picture there is a logo for a car dealership right above the trunk escutchion and lock. It says Turbiville. A google search revealed that "...the Turbiville family was well-known in the San Antonio area....they owned a Lincoln-Mercury dealership out on Broadway in the 50s & 60s...". This was found on a "Roots Website". Notice the Texas License Plate! I beleive the other picture is in Mexico. It is in front of the Hotel Arizpe. I found a Holiday Inn Ramos-Arizpe in Mexico. The front of the Hotel looks very Mexican!
DAV 1961 License Plates
