1974 or later by the federal bumpers.

I see no rubber edging around the front bumper corners so no later than 1975.
Shouldn't the range be '73 to '75, however?

The 1973 version has slightly smaller bumper but extended out a bit from 1972 model year.

Comments?

I know there is a '72/'73 front end difference but the Burness album shows identical front ends for '73 and '74 Hornets.

You are right, I looked at the Collectible Automobile featuring 1970-77 AMC Hornet: Creating a Buzz and indeed they are identical front bumper from 1973 until 1977.

Well, no. Not all the way to '77.
The '76-'77 model added a thin, rubber strip to the corner of the front bumpers, much like the Chrysler New Yorker did for 1977.
