So you're a Comet
and Maverick enthusiast? Well, here are some
tidbits about the history of these exciting cars
that you're sure to enjoy...and if you're not a
fan yet, this will give you a little bit of
insight on why you just might want to become one!|
Maverick production commenced in 1969 there were
127,833 cars made, all of them 2 doors and almost
evenly divided between automatic and manual
transmissions. The curb weight for these cars was
about 2,487 lbs. and a suggested list price of
$1,995.00.... a real bargain at $.80 per pound.
following years up to 1977 saw significant changes
in both the Maverick and the Comet, some of the
more important of these are disc brakes and the
offering a 302 V8 engine package. If you are
fortunate enough to own a Maverick or a Comet then
you can truly appreciate them for what we feel
they are today.
With just a minimal amount
of work you can transform the docile grandpa
driven grocery getter to a worthy vehicle capable
of performing quite well in the performance
automotive world of today. With the addition of
wheels, paint job and some interior work a truly
formidable restomod can be achieved easily.
here at C.A.M.E.O. truly hope you will be helped
by your association with our organization. If
restomod is what you are about...then we can help!
