I’m not sure what year this Ford Maverick is, I think it’s a ’72. I spotted it in the parking lot of the American Motors Owners Assoc. meet last year. The owner is proud of it, you can tell from THE MAV license plates. It’s in great shape, either a restoration or a well kept survivor. It’s surprising that you don’t see more Mavericks (and Mercury Comets from the same era) at car shows. Ford literally sold millions of them, about 580,000 in the first model year, 1970, alone. Not many have survived, though. They were economy cars to begin with, intended to compete with the VW Beetle (though this baby puke yellow-orange-brown Maverick was ordered with a few options – the interior looks a bit upgraded) so other than the Grabber models they weren’t likely to have been saved for posterity. Rather they were mostly driven into the ground or rusted to pieces like many cars from that era. That’s too bad because you could order them with a 302 V8 and between the Mustang and Mustang II performance parts that will more or less bolt on, so they can be made into runners. The early versions without the battering ram bumpers are fairly attractive cars, with a trim, almost feminine look. Of course you could always macho it up a bit with properly aggressive wheels, tires and stance.
