1974 Ford Maverick, Original 302 V8 Car, Auto, front discs.
I bought the car to make a fun daily driver, but the Mrs. wants a boat…so the car has to go. The steering system has been rebuilt, new tie rods and control arms, and pitman arm. The suspension has been rebuilt: new front control arms (upper and lower), ball joints (upper and lower), shocks (front and back). All parts were Moog when available. I replaced the 1/2″ sway bar with a 7/8″ and it handles so much better. New electronic controller, new ignition switch, new MSD coil for a little more spark. New U-joints in the drive shaft, and the drive shaft was professionally balanced. The rear seal in the transmissions was replaced. New Crager wheels, and new tires with like 50 miles on them. Replaced the 2brl carb with a rebuilt Holley 600cfm 4 barrel and nice aluminum intake. Cranks and runs almost like fuel injection. I even added modern seatbelts.
The transmission shifts good through the gears and the car drives great. It sat for a while before I got it, so a couple seals need to be replaced because it leaks a little transmission fluid.
This car would make a great kid’s learner car, or it would be the perfect toy… its light weight, good shape, original V8. I’ve done all the safety and functional repairs and upgrades, now its your turn to take it over the top.
$7500 (I have way more than that into it)
