Rare! — Been in the family for over 20 years.. learned how to drive in this car.. it is almost totally redone, but it is still in original condition. it only has 130,000 miles on it.. hope to have it totally rehabbed by Spring 2013. I LOVE IT!!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: GREAT POWER!!! get up and go!!

Cons: getting old and body is very light for the engine size

Its Awesome — Purchased for $300 in 1995...drove daily to college...ran great until oil pump failed in the replacement (non original) 302. Has been off the road since, but has had numerous engines in the engine bay that have found their way into other cars with stellar performance results. It will be repowered again soon and on the road again

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Its unique and you don't/won't see another like it...seldom see Mavericks much less their mechanical cousin on the road

Cons: That it has taken a back seat to other projects for 17 years now

1972 Mercury Comet — This was my first car and was very sound. Mine had the 250 in-line 6, I have no idea how fast it went from 0-60, but when I stepped on it, it felt like I was going into hyper-drive! Sure, it had the famous starter problem, but I got really fast at replacing them,lol.

Pros: Good reliable car

Cons: bad starter issues

Great Car, But Needs Some Work — the car is amazing completly stock everything down to the wires, literally. its got a 302 engine with a 2-barrel carborator and has no power brakes or power steering

Pros: fun to drive, very rare car

Cons: difficult to drive until you get used to it

Average Car From The Muscle Car Era By Ivan

This is on of those lucky cars built just before the end of the muscle cars. 302ci V8 power plant does exactly what you'd think: guzzles gas and pushes you back in your seat. Looks nice too. Not as ni... Read More
