HI Bruce,
I believe they were:
1) Optional and not standard on Mach-1 models.

2) No parking lights under the 1973 re-designed larger front bumper. Instead, the verticle lights on the 73's grill was tripled as a parking, turn signal and sports lamps.

Just an observation on my own 1973 Mach1. Others will hopefully confirm and chime in.

I non-concur with what was said about the front spoiler. The front spoiler was not a factory option; the rear spoiler was but not the front. Having said that, I'm sure the dealerships sold front spoilers as dealer options for any car they'd fit onto. The front spoiler was a factory 1971 Boss car item only.

Correct info for the turn signal/parking lamps.

The front spoiler was an over the counter purchase at the Ford dealer in 1973. I bought my first one for 17.00+ tax!(I should have bought a truck load!)

I think the front spoiler looks good on cars with a plastic cover on the bumper or a painted bumper. Not so good on a chrome bumper in my opinion. Same as the mach 1 rear spoiler on anything but the fastback.
