For Sale: 1971 Ford Maverick in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

This 1971 Ford Maverick offers a sporty silhouette in a lighter package than its Torino siblings, and so it's an ideal place to start for a big power build. That's why you have a bolder style, four-wheel disc brakes, an upgraded suspension, and a seriously powerful stroker V8. And because this has some serious attitude, the powerful performance is a given... However, thoughtful details like the cold-blowing air conditioning are certainly a pleasant surprise.


This Maverick brings a terrific classic Ford style to the road. The Grabber Blue paint was one of the best ways to declare you had a serious blue oval power car in the 1970s. And this application radiates a terrific shine to make sure you really get some attention. Plus, you instantly recognize the blackout hood and black stripes as inspired by the Boss Mustangs.
But holding true to the Maverick name, this custom is also its own unique rebel. So the black stripes kick off a full dark side with the bumpers, grille, front spoiler, trim, and rear panel all done in black. And we just know you see the big power dome of the cowl hood. And just in case you didn't already recognize this as a more modern beast, there are also nice updates like the headlights and Coys 18-inch alloys that fill the wheel wells with a sporty stance.


The black accents of the exterior get you ready for that all-black interior. And from the first moment you open the door, you can tell this darkness is all about getting down to speedy business. This includes upgrades like Procar racing bucket seats, a flat-bottom Billet Specialties steering wheel, and a Hurst ratchet shifter. And we love the large AutoMeter tach mounted on the A-pillar for a classic head-up display. The focus here is clearly on driving, and so no one will accuse this Maverick of being a coddler. Still, there is a thoughtful feeling that comes from such a clean level of fit and finish. They even put a mat over the dash just to have it look good without taking away from originality. Plus, this has cold-blowing air conditioning!


The engine bay is extra clean and tidy because they know you are going to put this powerhouse on full display. According to the consignor this is a fully built motor that starts with a 351 cubic-inch Windsor V8 and enlarges it to a 408ci stroker. So you get a big block displacement in a small block weight. It was enhanced and fortified with an Eagle rotating assembly, SRP forged pistons, 10:1 compression, a solid lift camshaft, solid roller lifters, stainless valves, Fel Pro gaskets, Trick Flow aluminum heads, and brass core plugs. It inhales deeply with a Holley four-barrel carburetor and an Edelbrock Victor Jr intake. And it exhales with power and rumble thanks to Hooker headers feeding the dual exhaust and Flowmaster mufflers. There are also terrific supporting components like a double roller timing shine, March pulleys, an MSD distributor, and an aluminum radiator with electric fan. The three-speed automatic unit was built to be stout with a heavy-duty planetary hub, a B&M shift kit, and a 3500 stall. It feeds into a Detroit Locker 4.11 rear end for powerful and confident take-offs. And to make sure you are in proper control of this full power package are nice upgrades like a tubular A-arm front end with QA1 coilovers, subframe connectors, new grippy ZR-rated tires, and four-wheel disc brakes.


The Maverick was born with a sporty fastback kind of style, and this one takes that spirit to the extreme with a bold style and a hardcore street machine feeling. So if you're looking for a head-turner with a comprehensive power package, call today!!!
