1971 Ford Maverick 4 door 6 cylinder from North America
It sank into a creek and was resurrected!!! Should have let it die!!
Transmission went out.
Oil leak on side cover of motor (common on a straight 6)
Shifter link worn out hard to take out of park.
I learned to drive in my dad's old (gut wagon) Ford! He bought this thing from a guy he worked with back when I was a in Jr. high school. This thing was a tank. Manual steering, NO A/C, rusted more than the Titanic!!!
This car was embarrassment as a high school kid, I mean a real embarassment!!!
We had a creek that ran accross our property, one spring my dad was leaving for work on a rainy morning. We had a long long drive way and it was pouring buckets of rain, near the end of the driveway was a place where my dad turned the car around every morning. (He was backing down the driveway)
Well the creek flooded BADLY!! and he thought he was on that turnaround, WRONG!!! He was in the yard and it was completely saturated!!! Sank about 18" into the ground!! LOL it sat there about a week, then our neighbor pulled out with his truck when the ground dried up a little. We had to let it air out for a long time!! LOL LOL we had air fresheners hanging EVERYWHERE IN THAT CAR!!! We even found a small fish in it!! The thing started right up and kept running!! Ugly as sin!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
