|1961 Comet Dealer Showroom Sign
This is a 1961 Comet Showroom sign. This is the only one I have ever seen. It is made like a wooden shade with the sign painted on it. Very fragile so I bet a lot didn't make it!
|1961 Comet Air Conditioning Phamplet
This is a phamplet showing the Mercury and Comet Air Conditioners. These were a dealer installed item. They were called Polaraire and the Comet version was smaller than the Mercury version. It says they were designed for Mercury and Comet and simple to install and transfer to another vehicle!

On this particular card is a stamp from Rotunda Motors Inc from LaSalle, Illimois. It is listed as a Lincoln, Mercury, Comet dealer. This is another example of Comet not being a Mercury in 61. There is an address that this card was sent too and a 3 cent stamp!
