Hello,
I was wanting to do A body off frame restoration to my 72 maverick and I was wondering if any one has done it or if any one has any info on doing it?

Your car is a unibody car! as are all Mavericks! There is no frame! The subframes are part of the whole chassis. Your best bet is sand blast everything then see whats left!

Welcome to M&M mav72!!

69maverick is right, if you ask how to do a frame-off restoration on a Maverick you will get answers ranging from smiles to laughs

The Maverick is very similar to the Mustang chassis, and there are many books devoted to Mustang restoration. Pick one up and read up!

Good luck with your project!
