these cars came with 302`s from the factory, so finding the pieces shouldn`t be too difficult. look online and look locally.

Heddman Hedders part #88300. They also work on early 60's Falcons for anyone else reading this.

Don't let anyone talk smack about your 4 door Maverick. I had a '73 with that I ended up taking everything out of and putting into my '61 Ranchero. The '73 hooked up like a mother******. It really felt safe on the WOT runs. People always dogged on it, and I wanted something lighter so I got the Ranchero. My Ranchero doesn't hook for nothing and it can jump three lanes of traffic in a single bound. It will be a while untill I get it back to where the Maverick was. Those 500 pounds less and better looks came at a huge price.

that's just it... it took me 8 months to find the frame mounts... i live in Washinton state.... seeing a maverick up here is rare... let alone a v-8 one that's a parts car..... and i'm looking for the cheapest possible solution right now
i have headers... but they wont fit past the steering box.... and they hit on the tranny cross member......
