    I didn't read this particular thread yet, but I will go look for it.

    I have seen that decal on the radiator support, but not on a Maverick hood.

    They list it for just about everything EXCEPT a Maverick .............. :bouncy:................ maybe an over zealous line worker stuck one on there by mistake. The '71 I had didn't have one. Maybe other '71 owners can tell us if they have one on their car.

    Maybe it was put on because it was a Grabber?

    Here's a decal from an early '70 Maverick. Decal on the passenger's shock tower.

    That is EXACTLY what mine looks like. Mine is also a yellow 71 Grabber.

    That is the correct one for a 71 .. I went with a rectangular one (forget what year) in my car because I thought it looked better.
