14. Ford Maverick
When you think of cars that were being thrown onto the market during the ’70s, the Maverick is one such failure. The Ford Maverick had the potential to be a great sports car. The lightweight design and potential to house a V8 engine were a great combination. But when it came down to the final design, the Maverick was missing the final touches to make it a quality car. You can see the Maverick as a two-door coupe offering a great combination of size.
The car did have a better design than the Pinto-based Mustang at the time. There was an intrinsic lack of quality which caused the Maverick to be panned by critics and consumers. Nowadays, the Maverick is a cheap relic of the ’70s, and that’s even if you can find one in working order.
