1971 Spring Value Special
#1
Sure looks to be a 71 Spring Value Special.

But 73 taillights... damage repair?

I'm talking about like the ones depicted in this Ford Ad -- Ray

Hmmm after more review maybe it was a Special Spring Value car before a repaint and they just decided to leave off the lower body paint and side stripes???

I have a customer that bought one in April-May 71' and he still has it, I think beyond repair.
He showed me the window sticker and it is the real deal, I just need to have him photocopy it for me and I'll post it up

1971 coupe with Vinyl top, NACA/NASA non functional ram air hood, Mach 1 grill, urethane bumper and racing mirrors. Car looks fairly original too. Just a few things supporting my 'guess'.

I forgot about the ad having a vinyl top. The only ones I have seen in person didn't have it. Dad's best friend in the Air Force had a DarkIvy one with Argent Stripes there is a pic of my sister setting on the hood as a baby in California in an old photo album.

Interesting though that the "73 4 Speed" is definitely not a 73, 71/72 front end, chrome front bumper. Guy may not really know what he has?
