Let us put it this way. We are not nostalgic for the Sixties. The only three reasons that decade was rad were free love, some seriously kickass music, and a whole lotta strife that jumpstarted the way we live today for better or for worse. Oh, and there were rad cars. Not necessarily incredibly across-the-board great cars, but revolutionary ones; charming ones. And this '65 Mercury Comet Villager is one of them. Plus, it's super-rare; auction customers care more and more about rarity and we've seen some pedestrian crap in good shape go for outsized numbers simply because the numbers matched and it's old. But really? Screw those guys โ€” this is simply a cool car, nostalgia or geek-factor be damned.
