1973 TB3 RR original paint survivor, 400, 727, AC car

Hey guys

New to the site, and wanted to post a few pictures of the 1973 RR that has been in our family for the last 20 years. All original TB3 "petty blue, basin street blue" paint with factory red stripes. Only thing not original equipment on this car is the wheels, and engine dress up. We have been debating restoring it for the last few years, but once that original paint is covered its gone forever.....Some research shows 3.1% of 1973 satellites were painted TB3, therefore assuming this number translates to the RR's, making my estimate between 50-75 with this drivetrain and color combo. I'm sure the red striping is even rarer. Rare or not however, this car has a lot of sentimental value to our family and is priceless to us. Hope you like it as much as we do.

Can't wait to have the 72 Tawny Gold RR side by side with its younger sibling.

Stay tuned!

Ty

Very nice,
I am very prejudice to this car and paint scheme. As mine is the same color. :) :)
