I ordered a 71 Maverick Grabber Green. You could only get the 250 6 cyl that year but the H.D. suspension gave you the same front end parts as V-8 Mustang and gave you 5 lug wheels and cost I think $10.00. Of course I ordered it. I put over 200,000 on a 70 Maverick 200 3 speed and I think 185,000 on the 71 before the auto trans started to do strange things. I still have the car sinking into the ground. It was barely over $3,000. They could make cars like that again but they just do not want to cost the same to build a Maverick as it did a Mustang so why make them.
I was an automotive engineer for over 20 years so I know what they cost to build.

What cost $3000 in 1970 would cost $17759.32 in 2013. I got this from a online calculator so I don't know how accurate it is but it still is interesting.

So was mine. It had the 170 inline 6 and a 3 speed. It was my sister's first car before it became mine in early 1986. Drove it 14 months and upgraded to an 82 F150.
