  Wow, thank you so much for the link. It is the same configuration as the car I just purchased, I believe mine also had the white top. I love the silver stripes, I can't wait to see what the car looked like when it was first rolled out. Another poster told me to look for the build codes in the seat springs, I vaguely remember my dad saying something about papers he found in the car so I hope he never pulled them out. If he did I may never find them, he was kinda disorganized. I love the Burgundy top too.

Did you change out the rear bumper?

Be careful with Marti reports and the bumper protection packages... For some reason, his reports consistently show car's supposedly having bumper guards when there was never any installed on the car at the factory... His reports differ from the factory invoice in this area as they don't show the bumper guards... I have reviewed many car's, especially '71's where this has occurred. I spoke to him two year's ago at the Mustang Memories show in Michigan and through e-mail requests showing the discrepancy about this and well, they ignored me... I wanted my J Code vert report to be re-issued without the indication of bumper guards; crickets...
73 invoices list it as either deluxe bumper group $25 or as rear bumper guards $14. The Deluxe bumper group included the horizontal rubber strips on the bumper. All my 73 verts came with bumper guards from the factory.
I received a couple of pictures of my car and looked at the rear shot. It does have the vertical bumper guards. I added a couple of pictures to the original post. Do you think it would effect the value of car to change the hood to include a scoop, electronic ignition, a 4v intake, a cowl under the front bumper, and have the rebuild on the engine add 4-bolt mains and higher compression pistons?

You should look for the buildsheet under passenger side front carpet or under the passenger seat in the springs or over the glovebox. It will like this....

Yes, by '73 they seem to be on the rear bumper's consistently, but '71 was much different in this respect...

Or, if yours is where mine was, under the floor insulation/sound deadening, it might look like this not a lot of use Sad

On the Marti report (ordered in 2017) for one of my 73 verts, the "Deluxe Bumper Group" option is called "Bumper Rub Strips" and on the report (ordered in 1999) for another 73 vert they call it "Deluxe Bumper Group". Don't know why the inconsistency.

Don, On close inspection, I can make out most of the info on yours. AM radio, rotation number, engine, and trans tag numbers, etc.  I wish I had one as good as yours for all of my cars. I have a buildsheet that was stuck to the underlayment so bad it was almost completely absorbed into the underlayment and was 90 percent unreadable. I had to cut out the underlayment with the buildsheet attached to preserve it...what for? I don't know you can barely read any of it, but I just did not want to trash it.
