    I know some states require a tag on both front and rear on all vehicles. My 73 Maverick has no holes or bracket to attach a tag. Is there a bracket out there for that?

    Unless it's maybe aftermarket, there should holes for the license bracket under front edge of bumper.

    Yes, there is a front license plate bracket. 1973 is a one year only bracket for the front.

    This is what I have. No place to mount a tag. What do I need?

    I think I have a 1973 front license plate bracket. Email me if I can help.

    I am not 100% but I think it bolts to the bottom of the front bumper. There is a slot at the bottom of the bracket for the plate to sit in and a place at the top for 2 screws.

    Remove those button heads ( in the second pic), drill holes in the plate to match and bolt it on.

    Mounting screw holes are at the bottom and the buttons are there to keep the plate from rattling.
