Vehicle Story

This Mercury started life out with automatic transmission & stock engine. Now there is a 347 living under the hood and an MDL modified Front shift T5 5-speed for better driveability. Modern DriveLine supplied an entire 5-speed package to convert this from automatic to manual, including an aluminum bell,  Flywheel, clutch pedal cross member, and mount.

Getting power to the ground is a Superior clutch. Making clutching easy is an MDL hydraulic clutch setup, with an externally mounted slave cylinder.
The Comet has a 'rod n' custom' front-end/subframe upgrade as well.

To handle the shifting duties inside the car a classic Hurst Lever with a white shift ball dresses the car nicely.
