    yeah having a 94-98 Mustang (or a 99-04) makes junkyard hunting so much easier considering the fact that they are identical (excluding taillights on 94 and 95)

    Same can't be said for 64 1/2-69 in that case it would just be 69 and 70 in that case the tailights, headlights, grill, and side scoops (N/A) are different.

    yeah pretty sure that the 68 we have s a freaking pain... barely ever touch it because when we bought it the driver's mirror was gone... the only one we could find was online and at like 100 bucks, it was a lil much... parts are expensive for that car

    Yeah the fog lights were "plugged" by ford on the v6 bumper. Basically it's blocked by a material similar to layers of cardboard. Which the previous owner partially cut out with a utility knife so he could put the foglights in backwards...

    those are just black plates in there....that shoulda just unscrewed...and just watch out cause 99-04 and 94-8 are different housings, but the same lenses if I do recall

    victoria...hehe...your car is most likely one of the 'max wired' cars...when Ford produced the 94-6(?) v6's they were prewired for foglights and a convertible top...

    what I did with my fogs was I bought the housings with one broken lens (the part the bulb locked into was cracked) and I bought a set of smoked lenses to match the head lights

    Welcome to the site. Can you post a pic of where Ford stamped the taillights? I have seen a lot of stangs and have yet to see a set of stockers like yours.

    Those are the weirdest thing. I'll agree I've never seen anything like that from Ford!

    and thanks for the complement. The new update includes a lot of new features. :) Stop by Site Discussion with any comments or suggestions. :)

    I think it was a dealer thing for 97-98 (Ford made the part however) that particular style of headlights was popular for 96-98 so Ford must have caught on.

    That must have been it. But I must say they are a little ricey for my taste. I'm surprised at Ford. :)

    Is there a part number on there? I don't know why Ford would make a part like that and this is the first time people have seen it.
