    Can someone post a link to the car in question? There are several 73s listed on Ebay right now.

    That is a Typo with the G. Look close. That is a Q on the VIN tag. The trim tag looks so clean and just placed there after the area was painted. IDK Nice car but the wheels look too big. Like a Donk.

    It is a relatively decent looking car although I don't like the hood, big rims or the fake RS look. Those have to go. Imho of course.

    I saw that car and noticed the tag differences. I think the body number on the trim tag was low which doesn't jive with the April tag date. It is weird that the VIN and body number on the tag match up but not the date. The only thing I can think of is that it was a 1972 body or something. The VIN says that it was built on the first day of the production year.

    The link posted above sends me to a car with the VIN 1Q87T3N171600 and a cowl tag build date of 05C. Those numbers line up with each other.
    All the rest of the info in this post appears to be for a different car.
