I have to ask why someone would save a 4 door Maverick with no miles on it? It's not an exciting or collectible type of car. Still, you can clearly tell it hasn't been messed with or restored, too many correct details on it.

And it's a type of car no one would spend that kind of money to restore to this condition. It would have cost a lot more than it sold for to restore.

I think this car was unsold at a dealer for the model year. Just a guess because why would a 4 door be stored for value when cars were not big money unless it was a Classic then. Now if it was a small bumper Grabber I would be all over it. 

A few years ago they sold that Chevy collection from an old dealer in OK (I think that was the state) and there were many 4 door cars they never sold but parked them in a yard.

Because not everybody is into Chevelles and Novas. Then again, I'm the guy who will walk straight past those without breaking stride just to check out a mint '86 Plymouth Voyager out in the grass lot. Something like this is infinitely more interesting to me than just another silver, LS-powered faux-touring muscle car or lifted old 4x4.

It ain't a $18K car....to me.  I've seen much more desirable cars sell for less.
