For Sale: 1970 Ford Maverick in Lavergne, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

This 1970 Ford Maverick has slick paint, a nice stance, and a bucket seat interior that all make for an attractive classic. But when you hear the growl of the exhaust, you begin to fully understand that the rear investments here are about creating a quarter-mile king.

The Maverick is coming into its own on the classic car market. The flared fenders, curvy sheet metal, and fastback-like profile with integrated spoiler look great today. And the blue paint loves to show it all off with its quality nice metallic glow. This is even a coveted earlier Maverick with a clear style and form-hugging bumpers. But what really makes these great classics is that we are starting to fully appreciate what you can do with a lighter/smaller classic built to handle rear-wheel-drive and Ford's V8s. That's when you start to notice how this one has been upgraded for serious speedy style. It's in the hood scoop up front and battery cutoff in the rear. And the slotted mag wheels have a wider rear set to hold those meaty Mickey Thomson rear tires.

The interior is a stylish blue and it has nice features like front bucket seats and cup holders. But the true appeal here is the car's speedy intentions. It is on a racer's diet with features like the radio and headliner deleted. And what they added are professional-grade components. This includes an NRG Innovations Pilota Series reinforced steering wheel, toggle switches, and a SunPro auxiliary gauge trio. Prominently in the center of the dash is an AutoMeter Autogage tach with a shift light, and that goes well with the B&M ratchet shifter.

The engine bay shows off more of the car's competition-ready upgrades. This has been upgraded to a 289 cubic-inch V8, and this hardy block has been upgraded with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, an Offenhauser intake, and long tube headers feeding a rather straight set of dual exhaust pipes. You'll also spot good supporting components like an MSD ignition system with timing control, an aluminum radiator with electric fan, and the battery and fuel cell are in the trunk. The three-speed automatic transmission has desirable features like Trans Go shift kit, the "H" servo, and Hughes 2500 stall. It feeds a 4.10 limited-slip rear end. This features a mini-spool diff, traction bars, and Mickey Thompson Street ET tires for confident and powerful take-off. And up front are disc brakes and a line lock for a setup that's ready for the street/strip.

This is the sleek-looking classic that's a powerful custom. If you love a quality build, you don't want to miss this Maverick. Call today!!!
