    Welcome to the forum. Thats too bad your engine cracked, but it looks like it is out and probably apart ....I think that is a good sign.

    Thanks for rescuing that Maverick from the eventual crusher! You definitely have a good start.

    I love more doors. It's rare you find someone restoring them!

    Awesome 4dr build you got going on. Keep them out of the crusher and stop parting them out. 4 door Mavericks/Comets are the true unicorns. Love the lines and notch back style of the 4dr sedan. 20190811_083328.jpg

    I agree completely! They really do have some great lines for cars of their era! That is a great looking 4dr you have there. Seeing them in that good of a shape makes me happy! Id love to see another around. Every time i ever drove mine it attracted people everywhere i went. Gas stations, grocery stores, movies, etc. I thought it was really cool driving such a conversation piece. I love hearing stories, and heard a ton of them from old timers at gas stations about their old mavericks!
    Really is a cool ride!

    Machine shops taking a little longer with my block than I thought they were. Can't wait to get it back so I can post up some more work! Thanks for the motivation guys!

    Finally! Got the call from the machine shop they got it finished!

    Had to have the first cylinder sleeved, and the rest bored .30 over due to ovaling. I have a new set of pistons, and dropped off first half of the paymet to the machine shop

    I will be picking it up around the 15th and starting the rebuild. I cant wait! Its like early christmas
