1974 Ford Maverick Grabber 302 from North America
Was a blast to drive
Freeze plug leaked.
Loved my Maverick. The first car for me and my family. Small, hauled ass. Handled well. Was a blast to drive. Wish I still had it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I had a ride in one of these in West Chester NY back in 1974 - what a blast!!!
Even with the A/C cranked up, 4 people in the car, and too much spark retard (thanks EPA!!!), the 302 could not be held down - the car got up and went!!!

One trip in a mundane Maverick that you still remember 40+ years later?
Must have been quite a ride...

They have been on the drag strip. With engine transplants etc. Plus this is a 302 - you could mod it.

Yeah, on the drag strip with the A/C cranked up and 4 people in the car.

Go to YouTube - there are pages upon pages of street strip versions, running 9's. The size and weight is great for racing. Sure they are not running stock drivetrains. Take a look.
