I bought my 73 Mach 1 in 1978 off a used car lot.  It was equipped with front and rear spoilers.  My Marti report did not list them as factory built that way, so I suspect they were dealer adds.  The rear spoiler is listed as a factory available option in much 73 Mustang literature, but not the front spoiler.  The 73 Mustang body assembly manual shows the front airfoil (page H3Z-104) as only applicable to model 63 (Mach 1).  My question is was the front airfoil only installed as a dealer add on?  The same spoiler is used on 71s and 72s.

The front spoiler only came on the car from the factory, if you ordered a Boss 351. Otherwise, all over the counter.....

I seem to recall even the Boss had the spoiler inside the car and dealer installed, I never owned one so did not dig into details. Something to do with shipping issues. Hub caps and mats got locked in trunk to prevent theft in shipment.

When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??:P

Sounds reasonable because those ramps up onto the Dearborn train cars were pretty steep. Probably would have toasted the spoiler.
