This wonderful example of Malaise Era engineering is my 1976 Ford Maverick with the uncommon 302 V8 on board with all the goodies such as power steering (which never worked) along with the barely functioning power brakes and air conditioning.

After some tinkering and some money, we got the original engine to run and had a nice little cruiser that everyone loved but nobody wanted to own. We would visit the local car shows and everyone has a Maverick story such as "my aunt had one..." or "that was my first car...".

So the old Maverick is off on new adventures with its new owner.
