Go up and down the frame...crawl under her and check it all out...I got a 76 and the first thing I noticed was the heater core was bad. Anti freeze was leaking into passenger side tub. But other than that check if it's power steering/breaks if it's like mine I bought it without and put them in..good luck hope you get it! Put some pics up

If it is mid 70's with a V6, it isn't stock. The last year for the 225 V6 was 71. Easy to tell the difference between 71's and 72's by the extra 4" or so at the bottom rear of the front fenders. On the pre 72's, the fender opening extends to the cowl while the later ones have a flat bottom on the fender in that area. Also, that change over switched from the D18 with an offset rear axle to the D20 with a centered rear axle, the Ross box steering was replaced by a much better Saginaw system, and the D27 front axle was replaced by the considerably stronger D30.
