mod maverick?

anyone ever hear of a mod maverick? my dad said he almost bought one from the ford dealership in 1972. he says it was a dealer add on with sidewinder pipes, a 4 speed, mickey thompson tires on cragars, and a mod maverick decals. i cant find any info on them and i have a 69.5 that would make a cool mod

It was a package from Jack Keller and Duttler(sp?) Ford in Grand Rapids, Michigan. If we could get original info from them, we could race a 351W 4 speed in the pure stock class....

I met a Guy last year who said his buddy bought one new at Sealye Ford in Kalimazoo, Michigan. I called the dealer since it still exists and nobody, including somebody that had worked there since the early 70's had never heard of it or recall them selling such a Maverick.
