Boys big jay got him a 73 maverick 2 door with 34,623 orginal miles

and the weird part is it was only 18 miles from my house,its a 6 banger 250,automatic,brown with brown interior,no rust ever,super clean interior,it hit a deer in the nov.,so it needs a few parts,this is the 2nd time it hit a deer,must be a deer magnet lol,i need a rust free drivers fender,grill,maybe a nice hood ,i might buy a carbon 1 though,trim for hood,like to get a 70 to 72 nice front bumper and stuff needed, and find a nice 302 and trans. this trans and motor will be for sale,it runs and drives perfect, god i love this car,cant wait to get it on the road,also would like to know best fitting headers for it ,shorties or full lenth, that are easy to get at plugs

Nice find, probably got a sweet deal with the damage it has. SHouldnt be too hard to find the parts. Remember the small bumper fenders have the notch in them. So if you are going to do a small bumper swap then any fenders will work and the later ones can be notched. If keeping the 73 bumper get 73 and up fenders so there wont be a notch in the front.

For headers I always say Hedman 1-5/8. Ive never heard of a bad fit, the hookers seem to be hit and miss with needing clearancing.

And I got a hood for ya, but its a long drive. have a grill too but Im sure you can find stuff closer. seems the guys are always finding these in the junk yards back east.

Yes the trans will work with a v8, one less thing to worry about
