Nice car Jim,very well laid out, the rims&tires and paint and hood scoop all go really well together.

Maverick's are always cool.And you can still get them at a good price.
Are they easy to get parts for and do mods on.Like how are the front ends different the the mustang.And can you fit a 351w or even a big block in them,with out major mods.

In sept,this year there was a 72 for sale that ran,but had a 6 in it.The guy sold it for $100 and it was very drivable.I see them for sale all the time for $500 or less.And our bone yards have at least 6-10 cars at any time.

SCOOP.

Fastymz: The biggest pony she will hold is a 351w Without some shock tower work! But thats alot of motor in a small package!! The frontend is like a Stang but parts are somewhat short in supply! Theres not much in the aftermarket supply but its coming! Mavericks are going to rule the World someday!!

Cool car. Any idea what it weighs? There is one about 4 blocks from my house that I might be able to buy. It would make another nice toy. Not nearly as purty as yours though.

SCOOP.

The shock towers are actually narrower than most anything else, a 351W requires cutting to fit any exhaust.

Cool car Jim
