EDIT: hmmm?

From a previous post from Kit Sullivan.
"71 fastbacks ( non Mach 1s) came with a full width stripe with "MUSTANG" letters cut out in the stripe in approximately the same location as the stick-on letters on 71 coupes, converts and Grandes." He followed up with a disclaimer, aka "I think". Smile

here's a link to the thread: http://www.7173mustangs.com/thread-letters-or-script

I believe the 1971 Facts Book in our WIKI (maybe Smile ) explains this better.

Not sure, my 71 Sportsroof (nonMach) had the individual chrome letters and no stripes, green metallic, ginger standard interior. I have side pictures (old Polaroid). If I can dig it up, I'll copy it and post. Dog dish hubcaps and all. I was the second owner and it was as original. The VIN can be found by searching the site for looking for an old friend.

I should be home this weekend and I'll look for the pictures.

EDIT - it also did have the black panel on the back - kind of camera case dimple finish with chrome/stainless trim top and bottom.

Seem to remember a date where it changed over. I'll visit my library. If I don't return you know where I went... Smile

It had the mustang letters. I can remember what the car looked like, I just cannot find a picture of it. I am dumbfounded that I cannot find one picture of the car from the first 20 years. Hell I found pictures of an 80 chevy citation my mom drove but not the Mustang.

Thank you both. This helps a lot.
