Continuing with my series on decaying, abandoned cars.
This is a 1962 Mercury Comet, a car produced by the Mercury division of the Ford Motor Company from 1960–1969 and 1971-1977 — variously as either a compact or an intermediate car.
The Comet was based on the compact Ford Falcon and later the Ford Maverick. As a Mercury, early Comets received better grade interior trim than its relative, the Ford Falcon, and a slightly longer wheelbase.

Note all those protruding surfaces and edges: the hand brake, the door handle / window crank, the vent pulls and that oversized steering wheel - all sources of serious injury in a crash.

The Comet was originally planned as a Ford Edsel model. It was reassigned to Mercury dealerships after the demise of the Edsel brand.

This is a 1963 Ford Fairlane.

Many thanks to my friend and Mississauga Camera Club colleague Fred Dixon for all the information on these old cars.

This shot shows the position of the Pontiac from the previous post. This shot was taken from the hiking trail, and it's very easy to miss this car altogether.
