This 1970 Ford Maverick Restomod has a very vintage style to be a
nice classic... but it's really just going incognito. As you dig
deeper, you see a powerful fuel-injected V8, upgraded suspension,
and the control of a five-speed.
Take a moment to realize why we're all starting to really
appreciate the original Ford Maverick. This has a real sense of
style with the long hood, fastback roof, integrated rear spoiler,
and a hint of Coke-bottle curve in the profile. It truly represents
the best in classic design, and it's all on a smaller/lightweight
frame. This example just looks like a well-maintained classic with
clean body lines, simple dog dish wheel covers, and form-fitting
chrome bumpers. And we especially like the 1970s-style minty green
color that has a good gloss without being too fancy to give away to
the car's true nature. In fact, there's even a decoy single exhaust
tip to make this look like a stock six-cylinder car! So the only
real exterior giveaway is if someone happens to notice the wide
Hoosier rear tires.
The interior is pure sleeper-style fun. So you'll be hoping people
will be spending so much time admiring the fresher classic-style
upholstery that they won't happen to notice the Hurst floor
shifter. Even the door panels, steering wheel, and dash look like
worn-in stock pieces. They even painted the housing for the added
Sunpro tach in beige to coordinate with the rest of the
The engine bay is where this one quits trying to pretend its stock.
It's a tidy V8 package glowing with power. We're told this Ford V8
has been enlarged to 363 cubic inches, which is 20 percent larger
than anything Ford ever offered in the Maverick. And this is built
for serious power with a Demon electronic fuel injection system, an
Edelbrock intake, and AFR aluminum heads. A nice set of headers
feed into an H-pipe dual exhaust and Hooker mufflers. And when you
want to make sure people hear this is not Sunday driver, just flip
a switch for the exhaust cutouts. Plus, it has the right supporting
components, like an aluminum radiator with electric fan, Ford
Racing valve covers, and the battery moved to the trunk for better
weight distribution. And you have true control over this upgraded
motor thanks to the five-speed manual transmission. This feeds a
limited-slip 4.30 9-inch rear end. And there are also Caltrac bars
and those street/strip tires for a package that delivers powerful
and confident take-offs. While this already has a nice wide tire
rear setup if you enjoy taking quarter miles in your classic,
there's also power steering and front disc brakes to make it great
for any-time use.
This Maverick goes out of its way to be a sleeper car that's
serious fun. So don't let it slip away, call today!!!
