    Hi Matt, at a guess I would say around $4,000 to $5,500 ask high and settle for best offer. To a true Mavericker on the east coast it would be worth it west coast is a hard sale

    $3000. If it had a V-8, it would be worth more.

    Of course someone is gonna tell you it's worth 50 or 60 thousand dollars because it's a "classic".

    My guess is that this is pretty accurate assessment but I would add anywhere in the snow belt, not just the east.

    Just from that one pic, it looks really,really good. If there aren't any real issues with the car, that ought to get a good price. I would think $3000 isn't out of the question. Being a 73, anybody that wants to hot rod it, is still going to change just about everything except the clutch pedal, but it looks like a great starting point.

    I'd put it on eBay with a ton of pictures and a reserve price and let the bids fly. Be prepared for someone to want to ship it.

    I almost want to tell you to take the goofy mudflaps off of it, but in a sense it does convey how well the car was cared for, so keep them.

    I would agree with Mike and say $4000 to $5500. Maybe more if it cleans up real nice, interior is exceptional, etc.. I would vote for losing the mud flaps.

    I can't believe it looks that good being in Hawaii, no way it spent it's entire life there.

    It's got a 6-cylinder and people are worried about mudflaps?

    That car is in no way worth $4,000 to $5,000. People need to come back down to planet Earth regarding their estimation of Ford Maverick values.

    $3,200 is a reasonable price.

    Why do you say that? Is that some kind of personal insult?

    My life is quite decent, thanks for your concern. I just find it utterly ridiculous what some of you guys think these 40+ year-old, non collector-item cars are "worth". Especially when they have the low-budget, low-powered engines in them.
