A nickname used by Ford Automobile Collectors for the 2 door version of Ford Maverick with the optional 302 V8 of the early 70s. One of the quicker cars of the early 70s. The nickname is derived from the similiarly performing but more expensive Maserati Merak. The Merak was produced from 1974-1982.
I just dusted a Trans Am with the Maverak.
