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
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
