Grandé specific options

Mine came indeed with a color-keyed mirror but only one. I thought the passenger side one was lost at some point, but found no holes or weldings and had to drill new ones for the mirror that I've added later on.

Only Mach 1's and Grandes received Dual color-keyed racing mirrors - DS cable controlled PS non-cable controlled.

One possibility - your passenger door has been replaced by one from a Hardtop. Or there may have been a repair to your original door and the mirror never replaced - until you did it.   Hard to say.


1971 Boss 351  
1972 Q code 4 speed convertible 
1971 Mustang Sportsroof  351-2V FMX 
1971 Hardtop (parts car)
1973 Mach 1 (parts car)
Color Keyed accent stripe was standard and unique to the Grandé. When the protection group option was ordered on a Grandé the vinyl insert body side molding replaced the upper accent tape stripe. A spare tire lock and door edge guards were also part of the option which was  $23.38 for the Grandé $36.00 for all other models.

No Officer...I really don't know how fast I was going, my speedometer stopped at 140!

Do you have that stripes diagram for 73’s as well?

I'd almost bet they are the same for 73.
Looking in the 73 Facts Book,  I did not see similar chart.  But the 1973 Dealer "Color and Trim Book" should list them.  That is one book that is buried in a box.  I'll try and look asap.  If anyone has that bok handy - please post.


I'd guess the same but my original color (5T - Saddle bronze metallic) isn't listed...
You could not get the fold down rear seat option in a Grandé. Smile

Grandes and Mach 1's were only body types that got color-keyed dual racing mirrors as standard equipment.

Most Grandes did come with a thin Grandé-only side tape stripe running along the top of bodyline. The exterior color designated these stripe colors.  
You rarely see those stripes as many aren't aware they came that way.  Notice some of the 'GLOW" exterior colors did not receive these small stripes.

Here are the related stripe color combos from the final revision of the 72 Dealer facts Book:
