Hello everyone, I recently got a 72 Maverick from my uncle that has been sitting in his yard out here in lovely California desert for 22 years. As a kid growing up I always saw the car on his property and really like the way the car looked. He is going to retire soon and he told the family what ever someone didn’t want was going to the scrap yard and I couldn’tet this thing go out that way so. Now here I am three weeks later starting the process of getting it back on the road. While I was doing some reading and research on the car I found this place and all the great info. So here I am learning tricks and tips from you all here and I figured I would bring you all along on my journey. The photos below are of the car when I went and picked it up and brought it home to start working on it. I did go up a few days before the pictures were taken and pulled the wheels off to put new tires on the rims so I could move it easier. The picture of the bunny was living inside the engine bay and hung out there until we started to move the car to the trailer. As you can also see the rodents did not do me any favors. The car currently has a 250 in it that I am currently working on getting running. Thankfully my local orileya auto parts had all the parts on hand that I needed to replace just to fire it up including points. I also got a set of torque thrust wheels and a five lug rear 8 inch from my uncle that he had laying around as well and I already purchased a front five lug disc brake conversion for the front and I might be looking into a conversion for the rear if I ever decide what motor swap I want to go with.
