You can sure see some of what became the Maverick in this one.

You sure that isn't earlier than 1970? I could be wrong but those round taillights look mid to late 60s.

thanks, dan.

for the record, that was my guess when i saw the car, and i was surprised to find that it was a '70.

...but upon further "research," i think it's a '66 or '67.

which explains why i like it so much.

That is a really great car. Perfect size bumpers, perfect snub muscular trunk/haunches. Perfect understated color.

BUT. I'm not sure what those wheels make me think of, but it's not a good thing

This would be a 1966 model. The 67s had two horizontal fender flares behind the front wheel well.

There's an auto repair garage a couple miles away from me that has had one of these sitting there for God knows how long.......a shit-brown AMC Ambassador used to be parked next to it, but that vanished. The Falcon *used* to have a 289 V8.

Something that has always bothered me is that how can anyone label a car like this a "sport" model?

It's an ordinary sedan with rear doors left out, not much even a "coupe". ;)

(Same amazement applies to many European car makers and models too, this is just an example for now.)

This is a 66 for sure and as for those that said how can they lable this a sport coupe for sure have never driven one with a 260 CI or or the late great 289 gave those Big Block cars a very good run for there money its a stang in a plain wrapper just like the shoe box novas half the weight and same HP if you see one pull next to you at a light and hand you your headlights down the road youl understand 289 +a 4speed get little car
