At first glance the one on the left looks like a 73 release (no tampos and rear capped wheels) next to a 74 release on the right. But they are both from 74 some one removed or over time the tampos wore off very cleanly leaving it mostly naked (hints of the “radar” tampo can be seen.

It doesn’t have the door lines or handles casted that the 73's did but it has the capped wheels making this a transition piece with leftover capped wheels but the base is definitely a 74 with engine/front suspension details removed.

Also note how both have slight casting issues where the metal had air pockets not fully casting it in correctly.

The only other time is seen this version is from a price guide in 1993.
