i'm new here. i just bought a '73 maverick grabber (a green one) for $300. 302 auto. it was supposed to be a beater to get me by till spring, but i've been looking around and am finding that these are really bad-*** cars if fixed up. i'd like to fix her up. this will be my first project car. it runs/drives. there is rust on the fenders. the rest of it is solid except for some nasty dents along the drivers side. it looks like it was sideswiped. where do i start??? what can be done with these cars. i know how to do my oan maintnence and stuff, but have never attempted anything major like this. and finally. what is a maverick? what is a grabber? appriciate any and all help here. feel free to e-mail me: [email protected]

as for how to go about repairing things...i'd find yourself a junkyard and start diggin' for a maverick or a comet(thats the mercury version of the mav, i didn't know if you knew, so i figured i'd mention it). thats what i did with my 74.

the car was popular enough when it was released that a lot of them still exist in decent enough condition to be salvaged, and most of the maverick's pieces are a breeze to swap out, in my opinion.

also...if you're looking for interior pieces or mirrors or almost anything that isn't body, i'd look around for anything of that era, i'd taken things out of mustangs, pintos and galaxie 500s, and parts from cougers, bobcats, grand marquis and LTDs are all likely to help.

happy hunting!
