IIRC there are no goons built in '73..... they were all built in the first half of the '73 model year and none after December '72. This could be the cut off for the PL510 and the start of the 610 as there were '73 610 with L18s I think.

Here's my one owner 73' original paint 510. Purchased right after high school, ( yea,I am an old guy).  Production 11/72, L series power.  610's were just coming out.

Do you have any photos of the stock interior? Primarily the seats? I noticed on my old seats the pattern changed from smooth + texture to only texture on the seat. Ill post pics when I can to show what im talking about.

Im talking about sedans btw, the last of the 73' 510's. Like my car is a 12/72. And theres a few 73's found with 1/73 and 2/73, and I think even a 3/73(?) Im not quite sure. I have to find the 510realm thread again.

Here is the bottom of my rear seat that was cleaned up earlier this week. As you can see, its all textured in the middle, and smooth on the edges unlike other seats ive seen in the past.

And my front seat's style is also different than that of others that Ive seen. It doesnt have that metal/plastic design piece thingy in the middle of the seat either.

Who on ratsun got em'? Im curious as to how many people own the 73's, and if so, a stocker? Every single 73 ive seen had a heart transplant.

 

Randy York in socal has a yellow bone stock '73. Taken it to JCCS a couple of times. His has brown interior that I think has that funky texture like yours.
