Assuming the hood is original to the tractor then most likely  its not a 73'

The decals show it is at least 1974 and up or if it really is the same as the brochure its a very late run 73' with new decals applied which were meant for the  74' lineup

 

 

 

I know that probably sounds confusing :D

My opinion is its a 1974 basing that it is a series 2 and has a fairly low serial number.
