73 Mustang Rear Bumper Brackets
Does anybody have an extra 73 Mustang Passenger side Rear Bumper Bracket they want to part with? The 71 and 72 brackets dont fit. In 73 they came out with a new bracket for a 5 mph collision safety measure.

Good luck. I have been searching too with no luck. I have decided to modify a set of 72 brackets to make them work.
bigfootlarry, I believe 70sElvis has been looking since December. Unfortunately with that bracket being a one year only part, I don't look for those to be done by the repo people any time soon. The reproduction people are treating us better, but we are still last in line as far as they are concerned. D3ZZ-17787-A (right rear) and D3ZZ-17788-A (left rear) were discontinued by Ford in 1995. I'm really surprised they carried those parts until then. We have two Forum member/Venders that may be able to help you with a used bracket. Don (Ohio Mustang Supply) and Mike at Motorcity Mustang. They both have parts cars and are good at finding non existent parts. If not, maybe one of our Forum members may have a 73 they are parting out.
The only place I found a listing for the right rear is one I'm not familiar with. Don't really know how accurate their on line inventory is but might be worth calling.  http://www.rearcounter.com/D3ZZ-17787-parts1657291.html
For some reason when they listed the part they left the suffix "A" off. But the official Ford Part # is D3ZZ-17787-A. If you click on view profile, you will see contact phone numbers, address, and website.
Good luck with your search!


No Officer...I really don't know how fast I was going, my speedometer stopped at 140!
ClevelandCoupe was able to find the ones that he had and offered them to me at a very decent price considering their attainability. Since I had already modified my 72 brackets to work, I don't need them anymore. Check with him if you still need them.
There is a member with the name Davis Soltis, maybe he have a spare set.
