    Here's a pic I found on eBay (Mexico) with that funky bumper. How much is $75,000 Mexican money to US? Gotta figure out if I can afford to bid! :huh:

    "Another Rumor that i've heard is that some Mexican maverick at the end of the production run got V6's in the Cuautitlan Izcalli Assembly plant :)[/QUOTE]

    This is actually true.
    A cousin of mine worked at the Maverick assembly line in Cuautitlan Izcalli and he mentioned that, saying it was a disgrace to do a car like that because it had been known as an alternative to the Mustang as a muscle car.
    To this day the Maverick is considered a Muscle Car on the same level as the Mustang, and other mopar cars as the Super Bee.
    GM never marketed a muscle car succesfully in Mexico in the time of the Maverick. The Nova never gained a Muscle Car status here.
    Sadly, in time a lot of those V-6 Mavericks got a V-8 swap because this little v-6 engine wasn't popular at the time. It would be interesting to find one.
    As for the 4 cylinder, that is not true at all.
    The first 4 Cylinder engine Ford ever sold in Mexico only came available in the 80's when it marketed the Mercury Topaz as a Ford Topaz and after the 6 Cylinder 64 Falcon line Ford only offered 8 Cylinder engines for much of the 60's and 70's.
    Now a days you can find a lot of "Mexican" cars of that time with all kinds of engine sizes but this are mostly cars imported from the USA and were never intended for the Mexican market by the manufacturer.

    Hello guys, first of all really nice post.

    Here in Mexico there are some good mavericks, with different options and some of it are custom and other are from other cars. The commet tail lights was a option but is a little bit difficult to find it here in Mexico, The speedo meter with 220 km/h they are really cheap here in Mexico, and also you can find some grille transparent lights do not know if is an option in the US.

    I have a story regarding Cuautitlan Izcalli Assembly plant, when they close the plan a couple of year ago they found a forgotten stock of dash pads for maverick they where stored for about 25 years, i mean not 30 new dash pads, hundreds and hundreds new dash pad in different colors, black, blue, camel, red wine color and right know you can buy one of those NOS Dash pads but they are really expensive compared with autokrafters $99 dash pads.

    Later i will share with you photos from mexican mavs, i promise to bring my camera when i go out.

    Mine is a 73, as someone mentions it is imported from the US and has v8 302 floor shifter 4 speed.

    Regarding those bumpers they are not common here in Mexico too, but i have seen one near to my place i will try to take some pics.

    Cheers

    BTW: how can i upload pics to the site
