Gateway Classic Cars of Chicago is proud to present this rare 1972
Ford Maverick Sprint Edition. The Sprint Edition was a limited run
commemorating the 1972 summer Olympics in Munich. Though a number
of tasteful upgrades were done on this example, it still houses
what is believed to be the original 302 CID V8 engine, C4 automatic
transmission, and rear axle housing. The engine has been freshened
up with a slightly hotter cam, a 4-barrel carburetor, and a set of
performance cylinder heads to put some pep into the Mavericks
otherwise unimpressive step. The transmission was given a general
overhaul, and the rear axle was changed from a highway gear to a
more "all around" radio of a 3.00:1 with a limited slip
differential. The interior saw a few changes as well, including the
addition of 3 column-mounted gauges in order to keep an eye on the
refreshed engines health. The original bench was swapped out in
favor of a pair of bucket seats, redone in the correct red, white,
and blue color scheme for the Sprint Edition package. Much of this
work was done some time ago, but the car still looks incredible.
The under hood compartment was recently refreshed with new hoses,
starter solenoid, and a few other odds and ends that really make
this car pop at shows. As proof, the vehicle has recently wone
several awards at local car shows. This rare 1972 Maverick Sprint
Edition is likely to be the only one at any car show that you take
it to. Don't miss your opportunity to stand out!
