1971 Mercury Comet GT parked behind somebody's barn in a small town in Indiana. It features a V-8, bucket seats, sport mirrors, and a hoodscoop. The door is very rusty as you can see, and the frame is absolutely shot. It might not be in heaven yet, but it is on its way!!
Update: I talked to the car's owner. He bought the car brand new!! It was black with silver stripes and a red interior. He refuses to sell the car and has plans to restore it.
1970 Ford Maverick Grabber located in Barnetts Auto Parts in Portland, Indiana. Originally a yellow car, it has been painted several times. The only way I recognized it as a 1970 Grabber was that it has the hood stripes barely visible in this picture.
1970 Ford Maverick put to rest in Barnett's Auto Parts in Portland, Indiana. This is is special because of the custom made "tilt" front-end. It tilts forward to display the massive and powerful 6 cyl. powerplant.
1971 Ford Maverick Grabber located at Hough's Auto Salvage in Bryant, Indiana. This car features bucket seats, weeds, sport mirrors, trees, and a vinyl top.
Here's a 1971 Ford Maverick Grabber pushing down daisys in Barnett's Auto Parts in Portland, Indiana. This is a 6 cyl. car, but it featured an Automatic with floor shift, bucket seats, sport mirrors, and factory air conditioning. It sets next to a green 1968 Torino GT Fastback. Lots of rust and bondo here.
Here's a 1971 Mercury Comet GT taking a dirt nap in Barnett's Auto Parts in Portland, Indiana. This was a V-8 car with a factory floor shift automatic and buckets seats.
This 1972 Ford Maverick Grabber rests in peace (or should that be "pieces") in Barnett's Auto Parts in Portland, Indiana. This car features buckets seats and a factory floor shift automatic.
1973 Ford Maverick Grabber made into a convertible by your's truly. You can see a picture of it back on my home page under "My Mavericks".
A truly rare find....a 1976 Ford Maverick Stallion. It featured bucket seats and sport mirrors. This car still features the original paint, now slightly obscured by moss. It is now "bark powered" by the trees growing up in the engine bay.
This car rests six feet under........six feet under the Chrysler on top of it!! This is a 1972 Ford Maverick Grabber. This was a really neat car in it's day. V-8 powered, 3-speed with floor shift, bucket seats, sport mirrors and Lime paint!!
What is really unique about this car is the brown with yellow and orange stripe color combination.....very unique
Lots of thought went into making this tilt front-end....as well as a lot of bondo and reinforcing shelving brackets.....NICE!!!
Some grave robbers already made off with the hood.
I put it in its final resting place in Hough's Auto Salvage in Bryant, Indiana
You can't see the lime paint now because it was painted silver....then blue....then grafitti. Somebody had big plans for this car....they replicated the lime paint on the front end just after they removed the shock towers and put in a Mustang II front-end. It's all gone now, as I ran it through my "corral" and stripped it blind. I put this car to rest in its final resting place at Hough's Auto Salvage in Bryant, Indiana.
