Very complete looking engine compartment. You're very lucky. I'd do up a Marti report on it, maybe not a deluxe right off the bat. Get the cheap one, then if it has some rare options and also the original engine, then that might help determine the route you take on your restoration.
A 4 speed manual IS a rare option with the 71-73 cars. For example
only 1% of all Mustangs in 71 were made with 4 speeds. Not sure of exact
number for 1973, but it has to be equally rare especially with the 351. Manuals in big cars were becoming very rare by the 70s. Now it's almost non-existant.
A deluxe or elite Marti report are the only way you can get production statistics, The basic report doesn't have it.

Well, that was my intention to being with. Only thing that isn't stock is the auto trans. I want to put a 4 speed toploader back in it, but they are pretty rare. I'd love to get a new David Kee toploader, but they cost $2038. In any case, that's one of the last things on my list. I need to get it in driving condition first.
