That two tone, those wheels...would drive out of 10.
I learned to drive 'three on the tree' in one of these, but it was badged as a Mercury. Fun sleepers with a V8 under the hood!
At the end of the Maverick era They started using two tones. Same with parking lights in the grill. If I'm not mistaken I think the interior options got nicer as well.
You're right man! I had one of those. Mine was a '73 4-door sedan that had every-thing but power windows. It ran a 235HP 302 V-8 mated to a C-6 auto tranny. My wife and I bought it used from a buy here/pay here lot in Winter Haven, Fl. in'87 for a thousand dollars. Even though it was 14 years old, the car was very well-preserved for its age and had tremendous power and pick-up. When equipped with V-8 power,these cars were Trans Am killers. My wife used to race local teenagers who had fastercars than ours, and she won quite a few of them too! Other than normal maintainance,the only thing we did to the car was to install a Kraco 4-channel stereo system to replace the original Philco radio which wasn't working when we bought the car. Nextto my wife, that car was my baby, and I loved it very much. We enjoyed this car for a year or so before trading it in for '86 Ford Escort wagon (big mistake!) and to this day I have fond memories of this car and my wife. I miss them both very much.
The two tone, the landau top, the giant bumbers. So malasie
