    I've never seen or heard of one with a B in the VIN. :hmmm:

    That's awesome!! My first Maverick, a '74 Grabber was built at Wayne on March 6, 1974. The car had been sitting for years when I bought it on March 6, 2005, 31 years to the day after it was built. I know the history of the car back to when it was bought new at Riverside Ford in Macon, GA, and I have all the original paperwork including the build sheet. I spent 2 months going through the brakes and drivetrain and slapped a plate on it and drove it down the road for the first time in May 2005. It wasn't pretty, but I absolutely loved it, and put 10,000 miles on it over the next 6 months driving it back and forth to high school and all over the south east to junkyards and stuff. Car rolled 200,000 miles on Nov. 9, 2005 with several of my friends in the car on the way to school one morning. Lots of good times in that car. Wrecked it pretty hard on Nov. 29, 2005, got hit pretty hard by a brand new Lincoln Navigator (it was having a Mercury identity crisis at the time :rolleyes: ). So I stripped it, put it up on blocks, and left it sitting for 3 years. Then drug it out back in January and got ambitious with my sawzall. :biglaugh: With another body to donate what's missing in that pic, it'll live to prowl the streets another day. :D Car looked like this when new, and I'd love to repaint it like that some day.

    I'd almost be willing to bet that is a mistake on that Ford site. That or every single one of them were sold in Canada and rusted away years ago.
