Iconic 1973 Ford Shelby Maverick Mustang Tribute Restomod

This 1973 Ford Maverick Shelby Tribute is proudly presented by Elite Restomods. I get what you’re saying; Shelby has never been a maverick in the United States. You’re absolutely correct. Carroll Shelby formed a partnership with Eduardo Velasques, a Mexican businessman. Shelby De Mexico was the moniker of Velasques, a Shelby components dealer in Mexico. Parts for Mustangs, Galaxies, and, yes, Mavericks were available. This automobile is an homage to Carroll and the kinds of stuff you could find down there. This automobile was built approximately ten years ago and has only a few thousand miles on it since then. This is simply a cool automobile that you won’t see a hundred of at your local car show or cruise night. The Gunmetal Gray Paint and Silver Stripes are in excellent condition and shine like there’s no tomorrow, as you can see in the photos. This automobile is a fantastic culmination of Shelby’s innovations.

Let’s talk about the interior of this fantastic ride now that we’ve given you a brief history lesson. When you open the driver’s door, you’ll notice that the excellent fit and quality continues. The door panels are in excellent condition, and there is no rust in any of the jams. Once again, this is a very well-built vehicle. The fabric seats appear to be from the Mustang’s fox body era, and there are no rips or tears in them. A center console has also been built, which fits perfectly around the Hurst shifter. Safety is always a priority, therefore both the front and back seats include four-point harnesses. You can listen to all of your favorite music on the AM/FM/CD player that has been installed, and they will sound fantastic while driving. By now, you should be itching to reach ahead and turn the ignition key, so how about it, shall we?

As you give it a couple of revs, you give the gas a pump and push that key, listening to the 302 under the hood come to life and that instant, childlike, ear to ear grin comes over your face. Out back, a dual exhaust system with Hedman headers and FlowMaster mufflers produces that wonderful sound. On top of this motor, you’ll find an Edelbrock aluminum intake manifold and a 600 CFM Edelbrock carb, as well as Shelby valve covers to complete the aesthetic. All of this power is channeled through a C4 automatic transmission to a Ford 8-speed transmission “2.73 gears at the rear end. That means you can have all the fun you want with this car, but you’ll almost certainly never see the high end of the engine. It’s the best of both worlds: fuel economy and fun all at once.

The undercarriage of this car has also gotten some notice. This is a very robust car beneath, as you can see in the photos of the undercarriage. Although the brakes are manual, they have been modified to Torino 11 standards “There is a disc in the front and a disc in the back. Everything was restored from the ground up, including the suspension, making it a really fine driving car.

We cannot emphasize enough how much fun and how awesome this car is. With this car, stand out in a crowd and prepare to chat to a lot of people about it, because it will draw a lot of attention wherever it goes.
