Here's a look at the original style exhaust extensions, these were used on GTO/GT/Grand Am and any car with N10 duals, also used on Hurst Olds in 73.

Better photo of tail pipe extensions, you can see the intricate bends a little better plus they exit at an angel towards outside of car and fit under indents in rear bumper.

I have a matching engine car and the seats were originally vinyl, My car is a GTO, but unable to explain the SC emblems on door panels

Just wondering about this 73 Pontiac GTO I purchased last summer, VIN 2F37T315#####/ It has, 400 cu in. 4sp standard, power windows, rally gauges and Rally wheels, front and rear sway bars, GTO badging on grill but not on door panels interior. Any help on this appreciated

Good to hear you have a W62 car, a GTO ! 

I think you may be reading the documents incorrectly.

There were actually 3,761 Sport Coupes made, that is the model - F37. GTO is not a model rather an option so 231 of those Sport Coupes had the GTO option, W62, 106 Sport Coupes had M20 and some if not all could have been GTO optioned cars. 395 Sport Coupes had the 400 L78 engine and because we have no other information on the 455 we can assume that 231 or less GTO's had the L78. I would say that statistically based on the information we have been provided that the number of 4 speed 1973 GTO's produced in Oshawa is a least 7 and no more than 106, George sometimes shows this as Less than 107 M20 optioned GTO`s

So in summary you have one of those 231 Canadian GTO optioned (W62)  LeMans Sport Coupes (F37). 

What date was your car built and what dealer did it ship to?

That's getting to be a late build car, so given that the 73 is a one year only design I suppose it is possible that the supply of GTO name plates for the doors were exhausted. The car is afterall a LeMans Sport Coupe, with the GTO option pack.

Makes sense that it is a BC car with all that pristine body work and trim still on it.
