Thanks for the reply! How far apart were their build dates? Would be neat to find one or more assembly line buddies of this car.

Edit: In case it flew under your radar, my car was originally "Gold Glow". It was repainted red, early in its life. After that, when it was finally restored, from an already very clean state, they made it this metallic green'ish color. Kind of a shame it didn't end up back to original, but I like it anyway.

Same build date as well! Beautiful car too. I'm a big fan of white interiors. They don't get nearly as hot in summer time. Thanks for sharing!

Thank you guys! Its great to see so many of these cars all on one cool forum. They are a rarity in my area, compared to the pre '71 era cars.

Welcome from central Illinois.  I also have `73 Mach 1 Q code that was similar to yours when original, gold glow with 3/4 black vinyl roof.  I wish mine had the white interior and some of the other options on yours.  Very nice car!  I like the color and the Cragars!
