Buck Tag
#1
Recently received some feedback that the buck tag for 72 should be located on the right side of the core support.  Everything I have observed and researched to this point indicated left side of the core support.  I would appreciate feedback on known original placement of the buck tag.

I think you might have some variation by plant. Dec '70 Metuchen built car, pass side of radiator support.

Good point on assembly plant. I understand all 72-73's to have rolled out of Dearborn correct?

Dearborn was the only plant in 73. Here is a May built 1973 Vert with the tag on the right side. All the 73s I have owned had them on the right side.

I remember having a remnant of my buck tag on the driver side 71 Convertible, Dearborn built!

My 72 was on the driver's side when I took the car apart, so that is where it is now. I know the car had never been apart before. As I recall all 72-73 Mach 1s were built in Dearborn. Have you asked Jeff S. on the concours site? Chuck

I have not reached out to Jeff S. yet.  Looking for known examples from the 71-73 community first.  I will reach out on the concourse group with feedback gathered here.  Thank you

Here is my April 72 original 84k convertible. I have seen 71's on passenger side but only driver's side on 72/73 cars.

Mine is a '71, built in Dearborn in April 1971, and is on the right (passenger) side.

Before things get confusing, we need to stick to drivers -left, passenger's - right. That's automotive gospel.
