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....
FORD 428 Cobra Jet Maverick Recovery 10 Second Old School Ride
This picture compilation is the Big Block 428 FE Maverick over the last 28+
years from 1986 to now. Pics from when it was bought and built in 1986,
then traded-off in 1992, then dismantled, lost in a barn, then back to us
in 2008 for recovery. Project has slowed down quite a bit of late but will
be getting back to "speed". A 434 and 454 cubic inch Ford FE Big Block are
staged for power. Thank you for taking a minute to visit and thanks for
Dodge Viper V10 in a Ford Maverick Build Video 2 - New Work Space / Inspection and Plans
This is the second video entry for the build up of the Viper Powered FORDGE
The first was when I brought the car home from storage and for many reasons
never got farther on it. Then my friend and mentor Mike Fennel offered me
a spot in his shop and I jumped at the opportunity. With the help of my
good friend Jamey Smith, who has built and restored dozens of cars
(including several 69 Dodge Charger General Lees), we loaded the Maverick
on a trailer and cleared a spot for it at Mikes.
I took this chance to have the two of them look over the car as it sits to
see if there is anything they would change before we move forward.
Turns out, the car is in pretty good shape!
Now it's time to chase down some very important parts and see if we can get
the thing started. My budget has been completely demolished over the last
few years with other projects and just surviving so I'm going to have to be
very creative on funding.
This video series will try to keep fans of the build up do date with the
status and try to stir up interest for any sponsors that might want to
I would like to give a huge thank you to http://flowmastermufflers.com/ for
already kicking in the tubing and mufflers for this project. Every bit
helps and this thing is going to sound awesome.
Thanks for watching and don't hesitate to comment or send me advice!

1970 Maverick Grabber
This is my friend Roger's 1970 Maverick Grabber that his Grandmother
origially bought new. She was the only owner of this car and it still has
the original interior, paint and dealer installed a/c. Originally had the
straight 6 but now has a Stroked 347.
