76, good vintage. The dash on my 75 XL is plastic although my 76 GT was wood.

The 76 ones can vary in specs as like all runout models manufacturers start getting rid of stock by fitting more stuff to lower spec cars to  get rid of it.

Example is "L" models getting rectangular headlights/grilles as std.

 

Got some decent bonnets Inc New gen ford when you get to that part of resto but best collected due to cost/damage.
