Odd 73 VIN
#1
Is this VIN really correct?

Mexican. Note the unique door panels, which are specific to Mexi production. I believe the pattern comes off the Cougar.

A = Ford USA
F = La Villa, Mexico City
02 = Sportsroof
M = 1972
S = November

Early '73 production built in November 1972.

Front bumper looks odd

Jeff T.

Low buck, touring style, '73 Convertible "rolling restoration", 351c, 2v heads with a shave and a haircut, Performer intake, Holley 650(ish), roller rockers, screw in studs, guideplates, stainless valves, Duraspark / Motorsports MSD, T-5 conversion. 1-1/8" front, 3/4" rear swaybars KYB shocks and some home brewed subframe connectors. Future plans; JGC steering box, Cobra brakes and... paint, interior, etc.

When I die I want to die like grandpa, peacefully in my sleep... not screaming, like his passenger.

Some sort of welded-up, improvised replacement.

That is cool, I have a T5 and didn't know about the "Mexican Mustangs". Always learning on this site... thanks!
