1973 Maverick Grabber 332 Stroker first test drive
This is the first test drive of an 8 month build. It's a very clean 1973
Maverick Grabber that has been converted to a top loader 4 speed. The
engine is a 332 Scat Stroker, with Dart Aluminum heads, roller cam, MSD,
etc. During the build we also installed an SSBC 4 wheel disc brake
conversion. My wife was trying to film the "maiden voyage" and the
camcorder batteries went dead. She was relegated to the front porch using
the AC adapter. We will get it out on the road for more footage soon....
1972 FORD MAVERICK GRABBER - COMPLETELY REDONE
Ford Maverick's still had a strong showing in the sales department by
producing 255,000 units this year. Less than the debut year of 1970, but
still bringing a profit to the Ford Motor Co. Mavericks came in a 2 door
fastback sedan, a 4 door sedan, and a Grabber fastback sedan with 2 doors.
The Grabber model sold 35,347 units and sold at the dealer for around
$2,300, $400 less than ta base Mustang. Maverick engines this year
include 3 sixes: 170 / 82, 200 / 91, and 250 / 98. The only V8 engine
offered is the reliable 302 cid. with 143 horses. The performance car
Grabber had the tape stripes and the hood scoops. This Grabber has a Ford
racing 302 with 345 cubes and a B&M shifter. Chrome and paint are great as
well as the graphics. Once again, show cars are packed tightly together
and limits the visual of this Grabber in this video. But, I hope you enjoy
this rare Grabber thank you very much for viewing.
