2. Mercury Comet
This is the car that often beats the Mustang pound for pound in the power-weight ratio. What’s more? Lovers of vintage cars generally have to compromise on looks when they choose the Mercury Comet. You will find this model is hard to find because it sold nothing like the Mustang did.
That does not mean that because it is rare, the Comet is more expensive than other good muscle cars out there. Look for a 1972 Mercury Comet equipped with a 302-cubic inch V8 as well as Flowmaster dual exhaust or a similarly equipped ’73 model – they are available for about $15,000.
