This 1970 Ford Maverick was saved from a life of sitting on movie sets as it had done since the nineties. I believe this to be the car Johnny Depp, as Hunter S. Thompson, drove in Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas. For sure it was Dylan’s car in Modern Family and was used on the OC and in SWAT. As is the case with many picture cars, the least amount of effort was put into keeping this car in a state where it could be driven fifty feet at a time. The thermostat was plugged, which they remedied by adding an overflow bottle to the radiator. The original one year only fuel tank was poorly replaced with a more common ‘65-‘67 Mustang piece mounted sideways. Body filler was added in places that lacked dents to give the illusion that someone actually cared about this car. Plans are to make this car somewhat reliable and hopefully safe for an upcoming Lemons Rally.
