1970 Ford Maverick – A Restoration Project
1970 Ford Maverick For Sale
Up for bid is a completely " RUST FREE " 1970 Ford Maverick. This is almost like my very first car, but it was red, rusty and not as nice as this one. Comments from the seller are as follows with explicit details. This car is mostly original except for the floor shifter. The shifter collar on the column was broken when I bought the car, & after a couple of attempts to fix it and weeks of trying to find a replacement, seller had no choice but to put the shifter on the floor ! The little 170 straight six runs great & starts every time. Seller has replaced the battery & cables, fan belt, points with the Pertronix module & coil and radiator hoses. The carburetor looks fairly new ! The radiator has a small crack in the upper tank near the filler neck, should be an easy and inexpensive fix. Seller has replaced the clutch, throw out bearing, pilot bearing and had the flywheel resurfaced. The transmission shifts fine with no issues & no leaks ! Seller also replaced both U-joints. Breaks work great and has new tires all the way around. The original paint shows a little cloudiness, but should buff out nicely. The interior is in excellent condition. There are no cracks in the dash and no rips/tears in the carpet, headliner, or backseat. The biggest issue is the drivers side front seat has some rips in it & I guess the previous owners way of fixing the problem was " DUCT TAPE " ??? All kick, door, & back seat side panels are in great shape. The back seat belts are still wrapped in plastic from the factory. The trunk looks just like it probably did in 1970... clean as can be with what looks like the original spare !!! The body is very straight aside from two small dents in the pass. side 1/4 panel.
