Assembling a Maverick

Thanks to WU-vie MarkMcD, I was alerted to the existence of this great commercial, the inverse of my earlier post on disassembling a Beetle.

It reeks of the implication that stewardesses are lightweights. A bit reminiscent of the ad in which some guy (Andy Granatelli?) said even his wife could change an air filter.

I remember that the compact (cheap) cars of that era were the beginning of the easy to repair body panel design. As shown here, the design was supposed to make body damage repair after a minor collision a quick proposition. Unfortunately the design was also prone to rusting between the body panels and attachment points which destroyed the car after a short period of time. Really, when was the last time you saw a Maverick on the road?

Oddly enough, I have, in fact, recently seen a Maverick being driven in my area. And not one of those fully restored vehicles but one that shows some wear and tear.
