Special 73?


Erik J. Tiefel:
I have a 1973 standard mustang and I heard it was rare just because of the 351C engine and the bullhead hubcaps. Well I just want to know if that is true or not. Or where to find that info. The VIN # 3F01H192862. I am currently restoring the car and would like to find out what color everything is for the original. Thank you erik

model year:  1973
built at:  Dearborn (Dearborn, MI)
bodystyle:  Hardtop
engine:  351 CID - 2V "Cleveland"
consecutive #:  192862
