I have a 73 coupe, great car. To Verify numbers match the last 6 digits of the vin number will appear on the engine pad by the right head 400023, they also would appear on the transmission pad. The color was called Metallic Yellow but looked gold, look for code 953 on the trim tag located on the pillar when you open the drivers door. You have a very early 73 production car ,a 350 L82 , 23rd to go down the line. be sure to check the frame and body mount areas and windshild frame thoroughly as these cars are prone to some pretty major rusting. here is a site that lists some production numbers and options... http://www.idavette.net/facts/73.htm
