Hello Maverick/Comet Forum. My car is a rust-free 1973 Ford Maverick four-door 302. It’s first owner covered 70,000 careful miles from 1973 to 1996. After a long garage nap, the car was purchased last year by a couple who performed the initial awakening of treatment of fresh gas, brake bleeding, oil change, tune up and tires. They sold it to me. My objective is to keep this car looking original, while upgrading key systems to make the car reliable enough for road trips and less terrifying to drive in traffic. Disk brakes up front will be the first major project. Meanwhile, I’m focused on staunching the leaks of most of fluids (ATF, oil, coolant, PS fluid). Thanks to members of the forum for many helpful tips so far. Most of my mechanical experience is with modern, computer-controlled cars, so working on this marvel of analogue engineering is going to be enlightening. I hope to be able to share and contribute what I learn.
