Where are the Sprint seats and I don't remember seeing those stars on the hood of any other Sprint!

If it's the same as Mustang, the only way to tell besides a Marti report is the interior trim is HB. Sprints were the only car to get that code.

Good eye, Jim. You're also right about them not having stars on the hood. He is missing the USA shields on the rear quarters, too.

It's got a passenger side quarter emblem, and a blue dashboard. I wonder if someone swapped the interior out?

They must have swapped the trim code at the same time.

He has the very rare blue striped hub caps, {Sprint only} my guess is he rebodied a Sprint.

I just looked up the interior codes and they don't have an RB for '72 Maverick, maybe he's misreading it and it actually is HB and it's a real Sprint.

Did anyone see the small emblem on the center of the dash? Also there is no Sprint shield on the driver side?

Jim,
If you're refering to the "Fasten seatbelts" light, I had one on the dash of my 72 car, it's not a Sprint though.
My 2 cents here. It may be a Sprint that has had the interior changed out to a Grabber one for whatever reason. Also the taste in paint jobs could be chalked to the individual. Maybe he liked stars. Who knows what evil lurks in the heart of men. LOL. Only the Shadow knows.

If you look at the pic its right in the center of the dash to the right of the ash tray.

Yep, that's the fasten seat belts light for the passenger. I had a 1972 parts car with that same light (still have the dash in my room at my parents place! )

One of the hub caps on my Mustang has a red stripe. What did that come off of?

The only other stripe on corporate hub caps that I know of besides black were the grabber blue ones for Sprints, but I know Canada had their own version of the Sprint which was red and white and it had a maple leaf instead of a USA shield. Maybe their caps were red striped?

That could be it, I suppose. I spotted this one in the junkyard among a pile of black-striped corporate caps, I've been curious as to what it could be from.
