mine was built in wayne
I've never seen or heard of one with a B in the VIN.
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 ). 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. With another body to donate what's missing in that pic, it'll live to prowl the streets another day. Car looked like this when new, and I'd love to repaint it like that some day.
I took some pictures of my tags and VIN. I would love to have them decoded, any takers?
Post it up.
Send it. Got the '71 shop manual sitting on the table...
Mavericks built in Oakville has a "B"...Ive never seen one either
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.
Cool story,........ make it live again.
my 1971 Mav vin is 1X91F259214 with a DSO code of 25 where is 25?
Richmond.... but your car was built in St. Thomas
My GRABBER WAS BUILT IN K.C. DSO LOS ANGELES,CA.
Funny thing mine was also built in KC, and the DSO is Phoenix .
It's like our cars switched places
YES INDEED! Mine had a millitary post bumper sticker on it from texas. i wonder how many people have owned it. I got it from a storage place for $400.
Where the heck is St. Thomas???
