    Nice car and nice video, thanks for the ride!! I was needing one badly, if you really want to sell it then that is your business, not up to me to tell you not too, It is a very nice Maverick and worth imo, what you are thinking on asking for it, there is alot of work in that car and it sounds great.

    Nice video. Be sure to include the video wherever you try to sell it. It really lets you see all the little details that show the quality of the build.

    no doubt. might even be worth investing in a dedicated rollbar camara mount so the footage can be used specifically for sale purposes.

    After watching the video, I definitely don't feel dumb for saying around 20k. For someone wanting a car like this, its sooo worth it. I agree with Dave Boyer lol!

    Speaking of the no front bumper thing, there's a Maverick here I've seen on the road a couple times that has a Shelby R model front apron. Not sure what modifications it takes to get one on, but one of those would look right at home on your car.

    Sounds awesome. Cool videos.

    I did that years ago with a '65 Ranchero....I had to split it and either widen it or make it narrower...{I don't remember}

    I think u can move that car for 20K+ at one of the auctions. Someone w/ the resources and wants a one-of-a-kind car will pay. I agree w/ someone earlier, who said reserve of 20K, or hang on to it. People who have limited/no mechanical skills or desires but want to own/drive or add that kind of car to their collection don't mind paying for what they get.
    The short video is a nice touch --- I don't watch many Utubes- I watched it half-dozen times.

    VERY Impressive! I think the videos will sell this car!! The attention to detail and functionality of your work is outstanding! The motor sounds so strong!! I could watch that remote shifter linkage move all day (my favourite mod).

    Good Luck on your sale!

    I would be sorry to see it go if you sell it, I've really liked this car from the beginning...................maybe because I love road racing.
    I think all I'd need to do for driving it in California would be to put a front bumper on and add some mufflers................and it would be street legal...and all of those things are just minor.
    If you don't have much luck on Ebay............you may look into advertising it overseas. I have sold a few cars using Hemmings..............Pro Tech-O Plate 68Z28 that went to Sweden. 66 Mustang GT that went to France, and my Model A Hot Rod that is now in Finland. On all occasions they showed up with a suite case of $$$$$$. The last guy even paid me to trailer the hot rod down to L.A.............and there were hundreds of American cars going all over the world.........................just a thought.
