So the conclusion is that my grille/car was produced for overseas sale?

The thread presumes a standard Mach 1 Grill with an added emblem. Could it possibly be a standard grill with sport lamps added?

This is the image from that link I provided


Could it be that the emblem and mount were used on an original ford sportslamp grille?

You could do it with this:

I've got a documented Mach 1 made for export (the T5 package) that was built in the same plant on the same day as yours. The consecutive serial # is also in the 115s. Pretty sure it came with the original grille when I bought it - no place for an emblem. I bet it's aftermarket and/or modified.

On a side note , these were definitely early build 70s. They've got a few features carried over from the 69, such as the glued on windows (vs bolted), and a more complicated headlight wiring harness.

Yup, got the glued in windows

Other discrepancies include
Hood pins instead of twist locks
Strange rear striping ( most likely done after by a previous owner, haven't seen another like it)
3 wire sport lamp switch- I was told that was early production
And the weatherstrip kit I bought has a rear window seal but my back glass was glued in when I got it.

As far as the grill goes, it has the pad molded in it for the emblem. I will be looking really close at it come the weekend for a part number and Ill take some good pictures of it.
