69maverick's {Jim Bowden} '70 Maverick & '05 Mustang

It's a very early Canada made model. It originally had the 200 I6
with the auto option! BTW, that was the only option you could get!!
The lady that bought it in April 1969 Was Mrs. Smith of Middletown, Ct.

She loved this car so much that she called it her blue baby! She owned
it until she passed away in 1990. She left it to her son who had taken
care of it for her since it was new!! It never went out in the winter
at all. I have all the records that her son kept on it everytime he put
it away for the winter and took it out in the spring! Right down to what
the RPMS where at each time! This car never went back to the dealer for
anything other than the regularly scheduled preventative maintenance.

The son sold it to my son in 1997, then a week later my son found
a '68 mustang that stole his eye, so he sold it to me!

The motor is a 302 bored .060 over with a Comp-solid lifter cam and Roller
tips rockers. The pistons are speed-pro flat-tops The heads are 1969 351W
heads with 50cc chambers oversize valves making 10.7:1 Comp. The intake is
a RPM with a Holley 600 4BRL. The Ignition is a Crane HI-6 With a Crane
Street and strip Distributor and a LX91 Coil. It now has a BW T-10 and a 9"
with 3.50 gears and a Richmond Trac-Lock.

It also has Grabber parts from a '72 drag car that went to fiberglass parts.

The '05 Mustang is a V6/5 speed.
