The facebook poster ended up purchasing the 73 Mach 1 with a 302 ci engine. I believe the styling issue were the front and back bumpers and its theoretically confirmed by the members who chipped in with their opinnion

I would think that some enterprising young man, knowledgeable to the scarcity of reasonably priced original urethane '71-'72 front bumpers, would by now have come up with a replacement. My thoughts are to make a replacement out of fiberglass that , when painted, looks correct. I believe a steel internal support would not be too hard to mold into the piece. Maybe even just fit over the chrome stock bumper.
I know, I know.....some people will say a fiberglass bumper is relatively not enough protection, but it could be sold with a disclaimer "for display purposes only", and anyway, the factory '71-'72 urethane bumper hardly does it's job anyhow....ask me how I know! The rear '71-'72 bumper is no better....mostly there for looks, no better than a '65 Mustang bumper.
I am pretty sure we have a member with a fiberglass front bumper on a 73 already. So they are available just have to find them. His car is yellow with black front bumper??

When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??
My 71/72 painted 73.
