Jag Simon’s beautiful 1973 Ford Maverick painted in Saddle Bronze is a nice example. It came from the factory with a 302 V8 and 3-speed automatic, now replaced by a newer fuel injected 5.0 engine paired with 4-speed overdrive.

Check out his video to learn more and go for a ride in the 1973 Ford Maverick 302 build.
