If you went to your local friendly Ford Dealer in 1976, expecting to buy a Maverick Grabber, more than likely you were pointed in the direction of the new Maverick Stallion. The Grabber and Comet GT were dead, and the Stallion was the Maverick's new Performance option.
An option shared with the Pinto and Mustang II, Ford went to great expense for a one-year car. All trim was painted black, as well as the wiper blade arms. Optional "secondary" colors were Silver Metallic, Polar White, Bright Red, Bright Yellow and Silver Blue Glow.
Standard on Stallion:
1. Blackout grille, mouldings and wiper arms
2. Unique black paint treatment w/secondary color
3. Sport Mirrors
4. Deluxe fuel cap
5. Styled steel wheels
6. Raised white letter tires
7. Heavy-Duty suspension
