Sporty 1974 Ford Maverick Coupe Sneers At Its Stodgy Sedan Neighbor

My stash of DOTSBE photos includes many from Denver, and so I'm able to post two Mile High Mavericks today!

These shots come to us courtesy of Denver DOTSBE specialist Kitt; I'm not sure how close this car lives to the '72 Maverick sedan, but it's likely that the two have crossed paths during their travels. The bumpers and grille suggest that we're looking at a '73 or '74 model here, so I'm choosing the latter year at random; you Maverick experts are encouraged to point out year-specific identifying features for us.

Of all the cars I've had and regret getting rid of, the one I regret the most is the '72 Maverick we had in the early 90's. When we bought it it had 12k miles on it (literally driven by a little old lady to the grocery store and to church until she hada stroke. Her friend then drove her to the grocery store and church until she went blind). 302, automatic, AM radio base model car in Robin's Egg blue. Spare tire hadn't been out of the trunk. Unfortunately it had a little rust here and there, not to mention some dry rot on the interior.

Today, a few purchases on eBay would have taken care of the few blemishes, but back then finding Maverick parts was like finding needle in haystack. We ended up selling the car to a friend who pulled the motor for his truck and dropped the rest at the salvage yard. Sniff... I get all verklempt thinking about it...
