Last Sunday all of the Coupe owners in Rhode Island went for a drive in the Providence area before we put our toys away for the winter. They are all '72 and '73 US versions of the 3.0CS, and are all quite different in the details.
The amount of differences between the coupes was surprising considering that they were all made within two years of each other and are all US models.Great ensemble of 'blue' coupes. Also a cool comparison between 5 chrome vs 5 black slat kidney's.
Both versions look wunderbar.
Would be interesting to hear about your findings, specially since they all US export cars and before the facelift.The amount of differences between the coupes was surprising considering that they were all made within two years of each other and are all US models.
There are two different heater controls, 2 have one style, 2 have the other.The only visible difference should be the 73 bumpers and any dealer installed antennas. The 72/73 coupes all got the same driver side mirror and polished kidney grille.
I have seen five '73 Coupes with both license plate lights installed. Seems like losing the plastic covers is common...I thought you meant factory differences. All 72s have bumper mounted license lights, in 73 these moved to the tail panel with plastic covers on the bumper, when these get lost owners inserted lights into the bumper as well. Not sure when headrests changed from the rounded to peaked style, I thought this was 72 but not sure.
