I have a couple of questions...my car has a factory AM-FM Stereo Radio. Possibly a dealer install? Also a digital clock...not sure about that either. The other thing is the "bumper rub strips", what are those?

Here is the clock:

Nice car
You can see the bumper rub strips on my 73. No digital clock then, someone must have added it.

Interesting. "Basic" order. I've seen "Stock," "Retail," and "Fleet," but never basic. Anyone know what that is?

How to buy a '71-73 Mustang:
Rule #1: Assume all classic car sellers are guilty until proven innocent.
Rule #2: No classic car dealer is ever innocent; thus, they are all guilty.
Rule #3: Buy from trustworthy people: Fellow forum members. Visit 7173Mustang's For Sale forum.

Kurt...here you go.

Retail – an individual comes to a dealership and orders an as yet unbuilt vehicle
Stock – a dealer orders a vehicle to have available for display at his/her location
Basic – Ford has excess capacity on an assembly line and produces vehicles to keep the plant busy

I am confused! So I have read in many places that there were 133,867 Mustangs made in 1973. My VIN shows mine is the 145,680th made. (245,680) How can this be? The VIN for the first mustang in 73 is 100,001, correct? Am I missing something?

The VIN sequence included other Ford makes/models as well as the Mustang.
