Ford Maverick the Ice Maverick


About my car

This car I came across while working at a sign/graphics shop while in high school. My boss had bought it for his foster child, it was going to be a 351 w powered drag car. His son later started getting into the wrong crowd, doing drugs, graffiti and other vandalism (including my own car, another maverick, wasn't graffiti luckily) so ultimately my boss decided he doesn't deserve this car any longer. They had fully caged the car, and put mustang ii front suspension in it.

So the car went up for sale, I thought about it, talked to my dad about it, but by the time we decided we wanted it, it was gone. BUT! about a year or two later, I was working at a new job, my daily driver maverick caught the eye of another coworker, he said his dad has a maverick for sale. Behold, it was the maverick I missed out on! The guy had bought it just for the 351w and didn't want the car itself.

we agreed on a price of $250, there were no wheels, axles or anything, but the rest was there, minus the engine. We dragged it out of the grass, and got to work. I managed to track down the original rear axle and got it sitting on 4 wheels, and scored a running 5.0 h.o. Engine from a 93 cougar, and a t5 tremic transmission.

it's still a work in progress, but it's coming along nicely!

  • This car was made in 1973 and I've driven it since 2013
  • The Ford Maverick was in production from 1970 to 1977

Sorry, I've been busy. I haven't made a post yet.
