1975 Ford Maverick. Good or Bad?

my buddy just built this 75 maverick, it is a nice street/track car but is still a project car. it has a 89 gt 5.0 with a cam and aluminum heads and what not with a t5 tranny. has a 8" something rear with 411 gears. i took it for a ride the other day and couldn't keep it in a straight line, the car is fast.

just curious if any 1 on here knows anything about these cars & if its worth it to buy for a track/street car. i dont know much about these old fords so any input is greatly appreciated.

heres some sh!tty pics.

let me think about it for a min














NO Ill have the F150 till Im dead .. I have had it for the last 17 years

I seriously had looked for a Mercury Comet 2dr or Ford Maverick 2dr but most of them out this way are rotten..that was about 10 years ago, I wanted to build one with a small block turbo... if you go look at it check the rear frame rails and the front shock towers if they are solid your good

i dont blame you that is a very nice looking truck.
he just put new shocks in it and surprisingly i didnt find any rust, he didnt take his time painting it and did it out side not in a booth, so its not the best paint job, but good enough for the track.
