Options on Marti report
#1
Good morning all!

I have questions regarding a couple of options that are listed on the Marti report for my '73 Mach (build date of 06/73).

Option: California Emissions Testing (what's this?)

Option: Deluxe Seat Belts (I have the Ginger interior, all of my belts are Ginger in color w/ seatbelt warning connections for front lap belts, is this part of the upgraded seat belt option?. Most 71-73's I see have black seat belts)

Thanks, Paul

California had a more strict EPA requirement so the calibration of the engine is a little different for California. The Deluxe seat belts just had a little fancier buckle nothing fantastic. I think all 73 had the warning light on the dash. Buzzer sounds when you go into gear if drivers belt not fastened and there is a sensor in the passenger seat that makes it buzz if someone sitting there or something heavy in the seat.
I think there was a sticker on side window for the California cars also I have a Calif. vert 73.


When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??

Thanks much for your reply. Would you happen to have a pic of the emissions sticker? Any idea if is reproduced? Regarding my seat belts, both the front and rear lap belts in my car are Ginger color. However, one of the previous owners removed the shoulder belts (I had to assume that they were Ginger as well) so I had to look long and hard to find a set of "Ginger' colored shoulder belts (black-not so hard to find). I happened to come across a new NOS Ginger belt assy.

Yes that is the deluxe belts and yes shoulder was ginger also. The convertible did not have the shoulder belt so you loose them as a source. White interiors got black also.
There was a recall on the belts because the plastic collar on the post on the shoulder harness that clips into the seat belt would break and fall off. This is the Ford fix. You rolled on two O-rings and that kept the harness snapped in.

Forgot about the emissions sticker. I have been told they were on the rear side glass on drivers side on California cars only. The biggest producer of stickers is Osborne in Atlanta Ga. He might have I have not looked.
I have never found the right sticker for the valve cover on a 73 California H code.

My white interior has an off white, cream colored seat belt from the factory... I had them restored in the same fashion.

To add to what David stated, Deluxe belts were color coordinated to the interior in all four seats, standard belts were all black. All 72 & 73 Mustangs had the seat belt warning system with the light in the passenger side dash and warning buzzer.
