1972 Ford Maverick Pro Mod

I’ve always loved the Ford Maverick as a drag car. I thought it was only fitting to give it a modern version of the Ford Motorcraft paint scheme made popular by the late, iconic Bob Glidden. The planning stages to acquire every 1/25 scale aftermarket part needed took three weeks, including the itemizing of pieces I’d have to scratchbuild.

Making this a build with zero kit parts was challenging! The car is comprised of roughly 800 pieces and weighs 6 pounds! The front and rear suspension, among many other subassemblies, use aluminum nuts, bolts, rod ends, and more. A build like this pushes you to the limits of your ability. I highly encourage builders to push past their normal comfort zone on each project and grow their skill set. This was rewarding personally. For it to win a recent award at the NNL Southern Nationals, its first time on display, confirmed all my hard work — 500-plus hours was worth it!
