    Hi everyone! My name is Fernando but my friends call me Nando. I just got my first American Maverick. I live in South Florida. In Brazil I had 2 and half Mavericks ... lol. Two with 4 cylinders straight and the half one it was only the body. So I am so exciting start to work on my 73 v8 Maverick that was dropped yesterday from Cali that I already started removing the bid or medium front bumper ( idk what’s is really difference between them, Bc what I figured out for while is that only until 72 came with small bum we, is it?!) In Brazil all the years was made with small :) and let s be honest guys, looks pretty much better. Anyways. Just introducing myself and already taking advantage for asking with someone have or know who selling small one, please, let me know or I am really thinking to bring some from Brazil to here. Bc looks like it s hard to find it here. Am I wrong ?
    Peace
    Ps. Sorry any English mistakes

    Welcome from Portland, OR. They do look better with small bumpers, and yes, they are always getting tougher to find. Congratulations on your new Mav!

    Welcome to the site from northeast Ohio!!! :tiphat:

    Small bumpers in any condition in this country are in short supply. Nando, if you were able to get small bumpers and their associated swap components out of Brazil I'm confident there would be a market for them. That is of course if the price is reasonable. Quantity shipping to Florida or direct ship to the buyer, you could be the broker.

    Welcome from the Oregon coast. Yes small bumper cars look much better, I just changed my 76 over to small bumpers and it made it a totally different looking car . We love Brazilian Mavericks they have lots to offer that the ones made here do not

    Your English is better than some of the people that have lived here all their lives

    Hello from Orlando Fl! Nice to see another Fl member on here. Do you have a contact in Brazil for parts? My buddy and I have a decent amount of parts in Orlando Fl.
