Oh. Ok . It was hard to tell in the pic.

Well, it is a 73 Mustang coupe that has had some custom work done to it.
Do you know what size engine that it has?

They actually called that body style the "hardtop".
To my knowledge, they never came from the factory with port holes.
That year model was the last year of the first-generation of Mustangs.

I think that it's a cool looking car. I'm old enough to remember side-pipes and port-holes. Lol.

What are your plans for the car?

Do you think that car may be one of the Shelby of Mexico GT-351's?

Well why didn't you just say that it is a Mexican Mustang Chino?

It still doesn't mean that it is a Shelby car. I don't know much about those Mexican Shelby's, but my instinct tells me that they were probably produced on the fastback platform. And I'm not sure if they had anything more than the 4 barrel 351 engine powering them.

So what have you heard, is the difference between a Mexican 351 and an American 351 engine?

The difference is that the mexican engine has more nickle in it, an it capable of opening the pistons more than .060

I think that I recall that.
So to answer your original question, you already know that the car was manufactured in Mexico. Now, all that you need to do is, to verify that it does indeed still have a Mexican engine in it, by checking the serial numbers on the engine block.

You need to verify that the engine block was manufactured in Mexico. A 42 year old car could have had several engine swaps... With the hecho en Mexico intake manifold reused every time.

I'm not saying that it isn't what you think that it is. I presumed that you wanted to know how to verify if it truly is a Mexican engine that is in the car.

I suppose next you will tell me that you just bought this car from the original owner in Mexico and it only has 50k original kilometers. Lol
