71' Convert Trunk Name tag?
#1
Can anyone confirm if all converts came with the "Mustang" name on trunk as shown in the attached photo or was it an option. Mine has no name on it and I have seen some others without.

All 71 coupes had the letters...maybe verts also, but 72 and 73's had the Mustang script on the right side of the trunk lid.

According to my Source (Mustang Recognition Guide 1964 - 1973), ALL 1971 Mustang Convertibles and Coupes had the word M U S T A N G in block letters stretched widely spaced across the rear of the deck lids.

The 1971 Mustang Sportsroof models had the word M U S T A N G centered on the deck lid.

Hope this helps.

Thanks, maybe my PO filled in the holes before they had it painted.

Yup, my 72 had that too before I had it taken off and the holes filled.
AFAIK, the block letters were 1971 only.

Hi there,
I'm in the same boat as you since someone filled the holes in my trunk lid many years ago. I own a 1971 Convertible as well and I think all 71 Convertibles came with the block letters across the trunk. I am looking for someone who has these letters on their car to make a stencil kit to help us out with the correct spacing and location of each letter! Heck, I'd pay someone to make me a stencil kit.  goodpost

Be aware that some of the reproduction letter have the mounting pins incorrectly located on the back of the letter. When using factory holes, the letters are crooked.

One solution is to use the stick on letters with the good 3M adhesive. Sometimes if you cut off one of the pins, you can swivel the letter so it is straight, but you also need to use a dab of adhesive to keep it aligned.

Hi f117rt,
Did you fix your trunk letters issue yet and if so, how? I need to do this too to my 71 Convertible. I have NOS trunk letters to use. Thanks!

Hi f117rt, can you please get in touch with me? It's about the M-U-S-T-A-N-G lettering on the trunk lid. THANKS!
