Was the sun roof for a 73 XR7 a some what rare option?

I have a chance to pick up a 73, with a 400m, auto, pw, pdoor locks, a/c, center console, etc. for $1000

Tranny has been rebuilt recently, body in fair shape

There were 840 sunroofs in XR7s, 57 in standards. Out of 60,629 total. It's the rarest option listed in Marti's CBTN for 1973. Even if the car is toast, save the sunroof and related parts.

A 400M? From what year?

p/door locks?

Power locks? Hmmmm. 400M engine? Hmmmm, Hmmmm. The 400M engine was not available in 73 Cougars. That makes me think that you're looking at a 74-up and not a 73. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think that power locks were an option in 73.

I believe my 'Alpha' 73 XR-7 has every option except the sunroof. Power windows, automatic seat back release, A/C, interval wipers, am/fm stereo, leather-wrapped steering wheel, 351C-4V (CJ), C-6 trans, 3.25 posi rear, rear window defogger, special paint code 6F - Gold glow poly (metallic), 1/2 vinyl top, bumper guards...
