Here we go again. LOL It has a/c though, but no p/s and p/b. How hard is it to add those? Price?

Should not be too hard... especially adding power brakes. My grandpa had power brakes installed on his 56 Ford Fairlane. I think it was a fairly simple addition. They used a booster from a early 70s Torino I think. The power steering can also be done, but I think its a little more involved. You would have to get the steering gear/boxes changed I believe and add the power steering pump. I am sure someone here would have more info on this.

I wouldn't mind owning a 72 maverick. P/S is a must for me & drum brakes I could live with (I had a 68 cougar with drum brakes).

adding both are easy enough these days. for power brakes, start here mustangsteve.com while his stuff is geared towards mustangs, a lot of his stuff can be easily adapted to your maverick as well.

as for power steering, start here Ford Maverick .com they are a maverick forum, and have articles regarding mavericks as well.
