Thank you! Good to be back on a more regular basis. Smile

Yeah, it was quite fascinating learning about all the different options, especially about the interior. What was deluxe? What came standard on the Mach 1?

Of course, the big mystery at the time was: is it a real 71 or a mis-VIN'd 73?! The driver side door and black interior that had front seats with side handles (vs the original white with middle handles) were definitely from a 73.

Removing the fenders to find the chassis VIN revealed a true 71. Smile

Always a smart move in these days of people mis-representing what the car is. Looks like you've got a nice one there.

Thank you! Yeah, I'll admit it was pretty fun researching all the fun places where the VIN could be stamped on. These forums helped a ton figuring that out. Big Grin
