David, thanks for post your builds. They kinda bring back High School memories.
When I was a freshman there was a senior named Oakland (first name) who had a Maverick that was bitchin'. It was black on black with Big-n-Little Mickeys on Torq thrust. and a sweet 302.
I saw him recently and asked him about that car. He said he was in the process of trying to repurchase it. I may print your pics to show him.

im no expert on american cars but ive been wondering that ever since some other guy posted photos of a "comet" with just a side view. i thought i was imagining things but this one makes it obvious...thats a comet?

That looks great both ways.

When I first met my wife I have now she had a cool Maverick with a 302 in it.

Because they are basically the same car. Ford Maverick Mercury Comet. They had different grills and tail lights. From the side they look the same.

Very nice. I like the way it looks. The stance is dead on. Any shots of the chassis? Did you put the whole engine bay in the Comet from the Fairlane?

oh. i must have lost track of comets by that point, when i think of comets i think of mid 60s. i guess then later on the comet was a rebadged maverick?

Sweet ! Nice looking ride. That would sure take them 4 cyl. foreign tuner car owners by suprize.

What kind of paint did you use for the lighter shade of green? It looks really close to a factory color.

Love your background.
