Erich, why not take that form and retype it into a word processing program, adding (subtracting) any clauses you want (don’t want) like specific performance, or your contingency clause (if you want one) or right to assignment and release from liability if assigned. Then you will have your own personalized contract that looks quite a lot like the standard form but does what you want it to do. It’s a pain in the butt (I just finished this process myself) but you do it once and then never have to worry about it again. Also, it’s then easy to make modifications later, as you see fit. You might want to get some qualified advice on how to word any changes you make to the standard form, however.
