My C6 Blue Glow Mach 1 came from the factory with the rear spoiler and it was argent (to match the tutone hood paint and side stripes).

So, I've been wondering about this myself. My car is not anything you'd call concourse and the rear spoiler is painted in the (incorrect only in that it was never painted on any '71 Ford at the factory, but correct in that it happens to be my all-time favorite Mustang color) body color. I take it from the above that a body color spoiler was not an option?

No front spoiler was ever offered as a factory option on any 71-73 Mustang, or any other Mustang.
It was standard equipment and only available on the 71 BOSS 351. However, it was a pretty popular item from the parts counter at about $35 throughout the 70s.

And I know this will get some disagreement, but I am fairly certain that it came only in black from Ford. The "argent" colored front spoilers originated years later with the aftermarket.

Back in the 70s, I remember seeing several BOSS 351s with lower-body "argent" tutone with black front spoilers...never saw an argent spoiler until the 80s.
