Hello and Welcome from Michigan.

There was no drag package offered in 1973. That was for the 71 429 cars. Slotted mags and front and rear sway bars were stock from factory. No chrome valve covers or air cleaner for 73 either. No such thing as a racing steering wheel. Sounds like the normal add on mods, but hopefully the car is in good shape and you can have some fun with it.

Drag pack was only an option on the 71 429 cars I believe.

73 was sort of the dying year for the mustang for years. If you go look I think in the Fun Stuff area on this site there should be a copy of the Ford Facts Book for that year. It will tell you what was in the Mach 1 option package, and also what options were available.

Mach 1 was more of an appearance package than performance. You had to pay out more than just the Mach 1 package price to get the 351 Q, 4 speed and run up the sticker price.

There were so many options for Mustang from 1964 1/2 through 1973 that it was possible that every car made could have been different. They weren't but could have been.

Ford has always sold over the counter options like the Chrome valve covers you say are installed. You could get lots of aftermarket items.

Your build sheet would be a big plus but like stated you can get a standard Marti report for I think $18.00 that tells what your car was built with and where it was sold.

The only Mustangs that had non factory options were those with a 6 digit DSO code which tells you it was a Special Order car. There are a few of those on here but not many.
