A Ford maverick Any car connoisseur should be familiar, but only as an SUV or pickup truck. Very few people in this country know that the model name originally came from a compact Disconnected was launched by Ford, which was available for purchase all over the American continent. The vehicle, which was particularly popular in South America in the 1970s, visually and technically has absolutely nothing to do with the SUV from the 90s or the recently introduced compact pickup. It has long been a tradition at Ford to revive model names from earlier times for modern models that have nothing in common with the original car. This is how it was done, for example, with the compact SUV Puma, whose name predecessor was a small coupé, and the Fusion, which is known in this country as a small SUV based on Fiesta, is known on the American continent as Midsize sedan.
Sporty oldie with a cool look!
Today we're introducing you to one Ford Maverick Luxo from 1975, which is based in Brazil, and is equipped with some modifications. He is also the pride of the owner Wellington Camilowho does not use the vehicle as a daily driver. From the outside, you could think that it is an only slightly modified Maverick in good condition. There were only Lowering springs, relatively tiny 15 inch chrome rims in the classic low bed design with a sporty look, and one double exhaust system built in, which comes along dynamically with its chrome-plated tailpipes, which are arranged symmetrically.
The vehicle owns by the way tire in the format 215/60 R15 at the front, and tires with the dimension 255/60 R15 at the rear.

This vehicle definitely has it all, although it looks tame and reserved.
Some changes in the interior.
The interior kept its classic look and it became just that Seats newly upholstered Sport steering wheel installed, and a new one shift knob built in, which has the shape of a piston, and thus looks extremely sporty. Otherwise, the charm of a long-forgotten automotive era wafts in the vehicle, and the car can confidently do without modern gadgets such as digital instruments or screens. Oldie fans are much more likely to warm to the classic clock collection on the dashboard of the Ford than to any comfort gadgets that are built into many restomods of today.
The Maverick is powered by a 5-liter V8 petrol engine
Originally a rather lame 2,3-liter four-cylinder naturally aspirated gasoline engine was installed in the vehicle, but the engine (luckily) had to be a much more powerful one 5 liter V8 naturally aspirated gasoline engine soft, which surprisingly found its place in the Maverick's engine compartment without any problems.
