1970 Ford Maverick Grabber 302 from North America
A wonderful head turner
My Maverick is the first year with the Grabber package, which meant dual mirrors and a strip package on hood and sides of car.
I replaced the 170 six cylinder with a 302, along with bigger coil springs, and am still running with the small 7.5 rear end, with no problems. I have an 8.8 ready to go in though.
I love this car, and man does it turn heads. This is my second Maverick Grabber, my first was a 72 with the hood scoops, white with orange stripes, I always regretted selling it.
I am currently working on the interior, replacing piece by piece when parts are available.
The best part of having a Maverick to cruse around in is that you just don't see many any more.
It had a small three speed standard transmission, which I replaced with a C-4, next year I plant to put a five speed in, and that will be the extent of my restoration.
The V-8 along with the shear lightness of the Maverick makes it a force to be reckoned with.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
