I recently located a 1972 Maverick Sprint U.S.A. and was wondering if anyone could give me an idea what it might be worth. The body has fairly heavy rust behind both the front and rear wheels but is otherwise solid. The undercarriage has significant rust as well. According to the current owner the engine (200 cid six) uses a little oil but is otherwise solid. After driving the car it appears that the engine runs well but the transmission (automatic) seems a little sluggish when it shifts. Anyone have any advice on what this car might be worth?

Sprints are rare, but sounds like the car is very rusty. If it has significant visible rust in the wheelwells and undercarrage then it is a lot worse underneath the paint. That brings the value down considerably. Also, it's got the base engine, not a 302. I'd say less than $1000, but the interior condition might bring it up to a grand, since it is a unique setup.

It might be worth more in parts than it would be as a whole car?

Yes, that car was mint, and it would probably cost 10k to bring a rusty one to that condition.
