1971 Ford Maverick PLAIN JANE (MAVERICK)

Photo of a 1971 Ford Maverick PLAIN JANE (MAVERICK)


This is my wife's car. When i still had my detailing business open one of my customers who own's a local body shop painted this maverick which at the time was his. He brought it to me after he painted it so i could clean it up and detail it. The day i was working on it my wife Jennifer brought me lunch, as soon as she saw the Maverick it was love at first site. To make a long story short, the Maverick never left my shop once he dropped it off for cleaning. My wife ended up buying it from him and later that night we drove it home and we've had owned it ever since. This car has been to Sommerville cruise nights a numerous amount of times and about 4 times to Ocean City Maryland for the endless summer cruising event with no problems. It was driven the whole 3 1/2 hours each way, no trailer, no ferry, all highway. It gets great gas mileage. It's been sitting for the last 4 years because of some cosmetic damages it aquired from a lawn mower that threw some stones. She refuses to drive it until we get it fixed. I start it up about once a month to keep it going. And only if the weather is nice i take it for a spin through town. I have some big plans for this car once the Nova gets done. Look out for this one when it's done because it's gonna be one FAST MAVERICK!!!!!!!!
