I don't know this for sure, but I would expect both cars started as bodies-in-white, without VINs.  Similar to the last four Kar Kraft/Bud Moore cars.  Consequently, no titles.

ta22, thanks for the current pictures and info.  Any ideas what it did between late 1970 and 1976?  Was it sitting at the Moore shops uncompleted?

Good question....I don't know.  I'm not sure those two cars ever left Kar Kraft or the Detroit area (Tope's car).

Speaking of '71......  I thought there was a rumor of possible Boss powered Mavericks for '71?   I probably need to ask the Ford guys on Boss302.com

there was to be a V-8 (302) powered Shelby equipped Maverick built in Mexico. it seems none were ever produced, other than one prototype. bit of info here on the OTHER ! guys site.
http://saacforum.com/index.php?topic=23032.0  I do remember my friends called the Maverick Grabber a Maverick with a wax job ! that quote may have come from Car & Driver one of my favourite magazines in the '60s & '70's .
