My Marti report (posted here somewhere too) states a built date of july 6th 1973. I emailed Kevin Marti the following:

 

"There is one thing I'd like to ask though: It states a built date of July 6, 1973 and I was told that that was the very last day that the Mustang series I was produced.

 

I was wondering of you could confirm this?"

 

His reply:

 

"It was the last day Grande's were built. There were a few other models of Mustangs built a few days later."

 

So there you go and yes, I possibly own the last Grande ever build :-) (still need to ask him that)

That cool Vinnie. That what I am trying to find out is when the last 73 mustang was built and if any member owns it.

Looks like Vinnie's car has a VIN of 3F04H262848

 

I took a look at all the registered cars on insearchofmustangs.org and found the latest 73 VIN is 3F04Q263036 which is a Q code Grande. Based on this car's VIN, 188 Ford cars were produced after Vinnie's Grande.

 

Anyone claim this car?

Mine was built 7/3/73.

 

Nice looking car Matt. Nice options too. Hey what does Trim Variation mean on your Marti report.

Based on the build date of Matt's Mach 1 I would guess that the "trim variation" refers to the absence of Comfortweave material for the seats. The variation is that the seats are all vinyl. I have two late build Mach 1s that have all vinyl as well. Matt do you have a photo of your seat upholstery if it is original? This is the first time I have seen this in a Marti report. There are many cars that got this substitution. It seems to have taken effect in mid June 1973. My Marti reports do not show a trim variation but it could be something that Kevin added recently.

Thanks Matt - Your Mach 1 has the same seat material mine and several other late build Mach 1s have. My Marti reports do not show "Trim Variation" as an option though.

I am curious on what that really means as well now.

Yes... I own this car! Purchased it 4 1/2 years ago.

Mine was built on 5/14/73. I was wondering who had there built in late June or July. Does anyone know when the last one rolled off the line in 73?

Little fan fare on the last 73 to roll off the line in Dearborn. No Mach 1, no vert, no"Q" code anything. 3F01L263891. A 7/73 built plain coupe, 250 6cyl, C-4, Gold Glow, with little else. So the end of the first generation Mustangs came to a very quiet ending.

:(

No Officer...I really don't know how fast I was going, my speedometer stopped at 140!
