Ford trademarks classic Maverick nameplate

  Ford trademarks classic Maverick nameplate It looks like Ford is going to revive yet another of its classic nameplates. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office lists the name Maverick as having been trademarked by the Blue Oval once again. Along with the Maverick name, the company trademarked the name Timberline. Both were issued in mid-April. Ford initially applied for the Maverick trademark in December 2016 and the Timberline trademark in January 2018.For the young'uns, the Maverick name was perhaps best known for its use on a midsize sedan and coupe from the '70s that was a size larger than the Ford Pinto.

For the 1974 model year, Ford moved the Mustang onto the Pinto platform and called it the Mustang II. The downsize/Roman-numeralization bit went so well for Dearborn that, a few years later, Ford created the LTD II out of the midsize Torino platform ... while keeping the full-sized LTD at the same time. Fast-forward a few more years, and the Bronco II began rolling off the Ranger assembly line while regular Broncos remained siblings to the F-Series full-sized pickups. Here's a Bronco II that enjoyed a backyard conversion into a Ranger-ish pickup at some point during its long (and no doubt full) life. It now resides in a Denver-area self-service wrecking yard.

Ford Fights Back Against Claims It's Killing The Car

  Ford Fights Back Against Claims It's Killing The Car The company says it's "reinventing" the car, not doing away with it. Ford has decided to ditch nearly all of its cars in place of SUVs almost exclusively – only the Mustang and Focus Active will remain. The current Focus will go the way of the dodo later in the month, and the Fiesta and Taurus will follow shortly thereafter. But if you ask CEO Jim Hackett, Ford hasn’t killed off its cars at all. Instead, the blue oval is rethinking the idea of the car entirely.In an interview with Automotive News, Hackett said that "we're simply reinventing the American car," not doing away with it.

There's a lot of cut-and-paste work with sheet metal, self-tapping screws, caulk, and black rattlecan paint here. The bed cover is made of 2x4s and 3/4" plywood, attached to the truck with piano hinges. It's reasonably sturdy, but requires a great deal of effort to open.

How many miles? With a five-digit odometer, it could be 108,692 or maybe 508,592 miles. Based on the truck's appearance, it's safe to rule out 8,692 miles.

In theory, Bronco II buyers could get a diesel engine. In practice, nearly every Bronco II had a 2.8- or 2.9-liter Cologne V6, the same engine family used in the Ford Capri. This truck has a five-speed manual transmission and four-wheel drive.

Because it's in Colorado, the cab interior is plastered with stickers from cannabis dispensaries, local breweries, snowboard-supply stores, and cosmic Shakedown Street sticker vendors. We can assume that this truck saw its share of camping trips, drives to the ski slopes, and hurried repairs in Autozone parking lots.

Once the market for used compact SUVs became saturated with cheap Explorers, the value of the less civilized Bronco II crashed hard. The value of a used-up Sawzall-pickup-conversion Bronco II with a transmission that only a tiny minority of under-40 Americans are capable of operating? It's whatever scrap vehicles are selling for in your area. I don't see many Bronco IIs (or early Rangers, for that matter) in my junkyard travels these days.

The Bronco II: it's a brand-new kick!
