Low Mileage Steed: 1977 Ford Maverick


Having covered only 50,000 miles this Maverick is looks to be a nice affordable survivor. With very few blemishes to mention, this Maverick is ready to take you on your next trip, whatever it may be. Currently bid up to $4,551.00 with a day left to the auction, someone may get a pretty fair deal on this low mileage steed. Find it here on ebay out of Mount Vernon, Washington.


No 302, but instead a 250 cubic inch inline 6 backed by an automatic transmission. The engine and bay looks pretty nice. There does appear to be a nasty looking pinch weld area at the top of the firewall at the wiper cowl that is a little rusty, and looks to have cracking or chipping seam sealer on it. Not a critical thing, just a little on the ugly side. A little detail work would clean up the bay nicely. The drivetrain is in good health, and functions properly as one would expect from a low mileage car.


No matter what car you have, most of us spend most of our time in the interior obviously driving. The interior in this Maverick is excellent. At first glance the peanut butter, orange, and white, is a bit harsh to the eye, but after staring for a moment you realize how cool the interior is on this Ford. There is little to point out about the interior of this Maverick as the interior is close to being in mint condition. The interior was obviously well cared for, and the only thing that looks awry is the seats have some ripples in the vinyl. There looks to be no ripping, or even fuzz balling on the plaid inserts on the seats. The dash and interior overall is clean and damage free.


Likely to draw plenty of looks, the exterior of this Maverick is equally as nice. There is a crack in the paint on the hood, and it looks to be a small outward dent, as if someone at some left tools under the hood, then closed the hood. The seller took a picture but did not elaborate on the size, or circumstances. Also the seller does not mention any rust on this Maverick, but studying the photos shows some minor bubbling at the interior bottom edge of the driver door. It is completely hidden from the exterior, but likely should be dealt with before going too far. The vinyl roof is very nice, and with a good vinyl cleaner and protectant, would likely shine up adding even more of a glimmer to this very nice Maverick. The paint is beautiful, as is the pin striping. With a beautiful finish, we suspect this is one of those cars that is difficult to look at in direct sunlight, as the reflective qualities are much like a diamond.


Survivor vehicles can often cost an arm and a leg, but this Maverick looks like it may be a cheap investment into a survivor. Would you bring home this Maverick?

    Seems to be an obsession with mavericks here lately…such crap cars(IMO)…I had one with 25k miles in the day, one of the worst riding/handling cars I can ever remember driving, add a 6 cyl and you were a sad case…never the less, the plaid interior is definitely cool !

    Ford might have discovered a whole new niche market had they gone into couch industry with peanut butter, orange and white.

    All the more reason to shoot your couch.
