I am not 100% sure, but I am going to say that C. Avocado.

Rusty, a 1973 Mach 1, needs a lot of work.
Billy, a 1976 Ford Bronco, also needs a lot of work.
El Guapo, a 1986 F150, frame-off Resto-Mod.
Bubba, my 1994 F150, daily driver
Formerly, a 1973 Ford Mustang Coupe - a work in progress, then a car-b-qued banana.
Medium blue and medium green.
B medium blue
D. Medium Green.

Oh boy oh boy oh boy! I may win!!!!

Of the given options, not a single one was available on the Mustang hardtop in cloth/vinyl.

However, only two of the options spanned the entire three-year production run:

A. Black (code "CA" for black in cloth/vinyl)
B. Medum Blue (code "CB")

Those two were available in 1971, 1972, and 1973 under the same paint and trim code throughout the three years.

As for the others, Avocado was exclusively a 1973 color, while Medium Green was only offered in 1971 and 1972. Neither were available as cloth/vinyl in the hardtop.

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.
The answer is "D", Medium green was not available on the hard top coupes.
