The scoop on the end of the hood is a bigger version on the one on the 69-70 Shelby(It is reversed on the Shelby). The roof looks the same as the 71 coupes.

Ford really wanted to emulate the "Shelby" look on the grill.

It surprises me how many "early" guys bad mouth the 71-73 with the styling so close to the Shelby’s.

Have you ever noticed how many 71-73 Funny Car's were built ! Tons, more than any other body style in the early 70's.

You can see the grill treatment in this pick well. The design crew wanted to mimick the 69-70 Shelby grills.

Ok, someone should build one now.
