I had a Ford Mustang II in the mid 70's with a 302. It put out maybe 150 HP. Overheated anytime the AC was on. Paint was total crap.

Not their best effort.

An automatic, inline 6 Maverick was my wife's car in the seventies, too, excellent value.

I could tune and time it myself.

We bought a set of four economy tires from KMart that lasted forever.

Those were the days, my friends.

I had a '70 Maverick (first wife's car)
Then a '71 Pinto 2-door, followed by a '72 Pinto 2-door wagon (4-speed)...
After the divorce I had to sell my '76 911S Targa and get a '76 Ranchero... since 1977 I've been Ford free.

I could be talked into a Ford GT though.

I saw one recently that had an msrp of $24k. That's pretty cheap considering today's inflated auto prices. In 2009 I bought a full size Dodge 1500 SLT for $24k.

The base Maverick Hybrid seems like a slam dunk option for fleet use.
My dad is planning on putting an order in for one this weekend, I'm guessing a XLT Hybrid.
His main vehicle is a 2012 6.2l Yukon XL Denali.
He's been driving a Mini Convertible recently, that their shop picked up for cheap. Massive savings over the thirsty V8.
