Mach 1 rear valance

I'm not at home but I'll chime in and let everyone know my 1972 Q-code 4 speed convertible that was built in July 1972 came original with the turned-down exhaust pipes, just like the Boss Mustangs. All 1972 and 1973 Q codes I have seen that appeared to be original cars have had the turned down (at 45 degree angled) tailpipes. My convertible's exhaust are original except for the tailpipes and the mufflers. Now back then I did cut the ends of the original exhausts and bought new from Ford the chrome exhaust tips and have ran them ever since. But I do plan to return it to original configuration soon!
Keep in mind I was very young back then and wanted to do a lot of foolish things to my car. Fortunately for the car my pocketbook wouldn't allow me to make such mistakes. When we got that car it had about 23,000 miles on it. We bought it in 1975.
Now it has about 75k miles.

Ray,
This 1972 Q code 4 speed T-5 had the cut outs and chrome extensions. I seem to recall that one is laying inside the car on the floor. I never did get a Marti on this car but it had Ram Air on it when I purchased it off the wreck yard. A friend of mine crashed it into a steel pole was brought back from Germany by a U.S. Army Sergeant. I had his name years ago but no idea now. It had a little over 32,000 miles on it if I remember correct. Here is door tag I do not have any great pics of back of car. January 1972 date on the sticker. I will have to see if the Buck Tag is still on the car.
