Remember the original Maverick? Yes, there was one - and it wasn't just a tasty chocolate bar.
Rather, it was a Ford which had been developed with Nissan, and built in a Spanish plant, to cater for Europe's first wave of 4x4 madness.
That was back in the early '90s - and while it wasn't a disaster, even back then the Maverick seemed dull, underwhelming and, frankly, not all that desirable.

The Freelander could teach the Maverick a thing or two about off-road performance, and just about has the measure of it on road too.

Most Mavericks were built and marketed as an 'economy' car to replace the Falcon, and aren't very well equipped.
I did some surfing on the net last year doing a little research on Mavericks, and you can do a lot to them, but they do require a lot of parts swapping to get rid of the weak parts and get them to actually stop and turn.

 Tom & Tammy Lee Hackmann’s ’72 Ford Maverick Grabber
The shifter was sourced from a boneyard ’85 Mustang, but the lack of a tach meant I had to go by ear when shifting.

But in a small car like the Maverick, which tends to flex less simply because of its compact size, the ride is almost too hard: If it were ours, we would soften the spring rates, and maybe raise the whole package half an inch in deference to cruising comfort.
