1976 Ford Maverick Stallion 250 I6 from North America
I like it and plan to Keep it for awhile
Had to recharge AC when I bought it, but it has held up for the past six years.
Some minor rust.
Needs seats re-upholstered and some new Door and window gaskets.
Motor just now needing some work.
Bought it in April 1998 for $800 on consignment sale at one of the junk car lots here in Wichita Falls.
Rare Stallion Package.
Draws a lot of Attention wherever I go.
Compared to previous year Mavericks, it is a lot quieter on the Highway, as by that time Ford couldn't sell performance anymore and so concentrated on comfort and used a lot more sound insulation than previous year Mavericks. At 70mph you can converse with your passenger in a normal tone. You couldn't have done that in a 74 or earlier Maverick.
Seats are very comfortable.
Gets 14mpg in town and 19mpg on the highway with the AC blowing.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I am attempting to restore a 1976 Maverick in my parent's yard. It has been sitting for a while mainly because we lost the keys. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on where I can get new lock cylinders and keys. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The "Stallion" package was basically just a two-tone paint and decal package that was only available in 1976 on the Pinto, Mustang and Maverick. It makes sense on the first two "horse" cars, but not on the "cattle" Maverick. Maybe Ford didn't want to call it the "Bull" package :)
