    Yesterday BKelley and I spent a few hours at the junkyard and found a Maverick part that should had rotted away 20 or 30 years ago. This came off a 74 250 Six. Best part of getting this was someone else removed the cylinder head and the shroud was just laying there on the battery tray waiting for some sucker to come along and take it home with them. Also I got a rear windshield for a 60 Falcon that someone removed to get the chrome trim and then laid the glass on the trunk lid.

    A Large Time Was Had By All

    Nice score! Luckily, mine was still on the car when I got it and it's not all rotted. Thin sheet metal stuff like these don't last too long next to all that heat and being down low, catching all the wet and weather. It looks identical to the one on my 200.
