Five 1961 Comet Dealer Postcards

These were used by dealers to keep in contact with potential buyers. One has McKenzie Motors written on the back in pen and the other has no dealer info but was from Portland TX. One has the Comet slogan "Priced with or below other compact cars", while the other says "The Value-Packed Compact Station Wagon".

The wagon post card says on the back, "Dear Sir, Has your daughter talked you into buying the Comet Wagon yet? I will appreciate the opportunity to demonstrate the car here or I will bring it to Portland.

The sedan is the same color on my first Comet.

The red sedan postcard is one I never saw before. The writting on the back is pre-printed. Notice there is no stamp or address. There is also no salesman name. It is also not personal like the wagon postcard. The writing says: "Dear Sir: New owners say the 61' Comet is wonderful to own because it's the best looking - and the best value at a low, low price. Your Comet Salesman. P.S. Ask for me. I'd like to tell you more about Comet.

The green 4 door postcard looks like it was something the dealer gave to the proud owners of a 1961 Comet and they used it to send a personal message to friends and show off their new car!

The bottom card is actually a postcard of a picture of a red Comet in a woodland scene.
