We love a car like this 1973 Ford Maverick because we don't see
them too often any more on the classic scene. And it also has a
cool fastback style and the ability to swallow proper V8 power. So
yeah, there's a lot of appeal here for the value price.
The Mavericks had a speedy trim level known as the Grabber. It gave
you elements you see here like the dual scoop hood and came in
vibrant colors like the Grabber Blue. So this one pays tribute to
that manner while turning it up a notch to have a true street
brawler attitude. There's sort of a street-wise anger in the paint,
blackout hood, and matching rear panel. Even details like the full
width rear spoiler, dual exhaust tips, and upgraded 15-inch
polished alloys all go towards this speedy street machine feeling.
So while the value price will leave room in your budget for plenty
of improvements/personalization there's also already an attitude
that we really enjoy on this one.
The full black interior keeps the speedy feeling going. There have
been some touches of style upgrades, like the newer diamond pattern
seat covers, but the real focus here is on the driver upgrades. A
B&M floor shifter for the tree-speed automatic, three-spoke
sports steering wheel, crisp Equus auxiliary readouts, and a Sunpro
tach mounted front-and-center on the steering column give you the
right performance feeling.
Under the hoods is a well-done blue-oval powerplant. Ford's mighty
302 cubic-inch V8 is a favorite, especially in a lighter weight car
like the Maverick. These are great for upgrading. It already has a
Holley four-barrel carburetor, shining Ford Motorsports valve
covers, and a newer dual exhaust that gives this a throaty sound.
So you have a strong-running package for today, and it also has the
potential to get as wild as you want in the future. And with
features like front disc brakes and wide Copper Cobra tires, it
likes to go out on the blacktop and earn its street stance.
This is a cool V8 classic offered for quite an affordable price. So
don't miss this mean-looking Maverick. Call now!
