    Hello everyone. I have 71 comet gt I purchased a couple of months ago from Mcaysville, GA . 302 3 speed. I started with suspension and steering. I also painted a few panels on the inside.

    I have been looking for a rear deck extension from a grabber.

    Welcome from the winter wasteland, with a little work you’ll have a beautiful Comet.
    Everyone’s looking for a Maverick rear spoiler including me, good luck.

    Welcome to the forum! I bought an orange '70 Maverick from you a couple of years ago that I gave to my dad as a Father's Day gift. I recognize your yard, house and the '56 Ford. My uncle and I have a Comet GT with the Grabber rear spoiler. Your car will be sharp when you finish with it!

    Here are a couple of pics of what the orange Maverick looks like now and the Comet GT with the rear spoiler.

    Very nice cars, what size Tork Thrust wheels are you running on the Comet?

    Maverick was my father in laws. Glad to see the car looks good. Really like the look of the spoiler on that comet.
