1960 Mercury Comet
1960 Mercury Comet
Value today: $7,000-$12,000

The comet isn't exactly what you'd call an exciting car, but it was important for Ford and the Mercury brand. It was a sister-car to the Ford Falcon compact car but a bit longer and fancier.

"It at least got Ford thinking about cars that were more sensibly-sized," said McKeel Hagerty.

For collectors, the V-8 powered 1963 Comet is the most desirable, convertible versions especially so.
