I have a 73 parts car I need to disassemble/get rid of.  The front clip looks to be in good condition with some rust at the battery support.  Haven't looked yet for accident damage, but I cant imagine its hard to spot if you're looking for it.

Given the cost of shipping though, even if the parts are free, it still might be better to spend the money on labor to fix what you have.  Sounds like it will take pretty much the same work to install new/used replacement as to disassemble and reassemble what you have.

Thanks for the kind offer. I think I will go with the new assemblies then I know the whole front is new and your right the shipping may be more and the time to cut existing front off. I have to go with what the certifier wants otherwise he won't comply it for NZ roads. By the way I am trying to source the square headlamp surrounds but don't know what their official name is as I haven't found them on the usual parts sites in the US so far new. Cheers
Steve

I forgot about the certification you have to deal with down there. Its a bit more free and easy here. I've heard people complain in other countries at how strict inspections are, but I've also seen cars driving around here with broken frames. As long as the safety stuff passes you could drive a car that has been tack welded back together.

I believe you are looking for headlight bezels or headlight doors. For a 73 there are two types, one is natural metal the other is black. I have one that is natural, but forget which side.

On the headlight bezel the unpainted can be masked off and painted to be correct. Be sure the bezel has the little spring clip at the bottom most are broke and gone.

Hi Guys I have attached a picture of the part but I cant seem to find them for sale new anywhere. I downloaded this picture from Ebay where someone is selling a single 2nd hand one for 122usd and not the other side with it.
I am not even sure of the correct name as hardly any pictures come up when I search Mach 1 headlamp bezel or headlamp surround.
I have ordered the new headlamp bucket assemblies and shocktower apron assembly and crossmembers from Stang a Holics who matched Classic discount parts' price but they had cheaper freight to my shipper in California.

Try searching for headlight doors, you should be able to find some.

Steve, Ford called them Headlamp Doors. When searching for them you will also see them referred to as Headlight Doors. Ford used a bright finish (R/S D3ZZ-13064-A)
(L/S D3ZZ-13064-B) and a black painted (R/S D3ZZ-13064-C) (L/S D3ZZ-13064-D). Discontinued by Ford and not being reproduced to my knowledge. Don @ Ohio Mustang Supply or Mike @ Motor City Mustang would be where I would start. They are Forum members/Vendors and have parts cars and a ton of knowledge on the 71-73's. There are other members such as Rich (Rackerm) that have E-Bay stores and know these cars inside out. Give 'em a try!

Fantastic thanks so much. I did see some of the 60s models on parts sites refer to headlamp doors but thought it was for the whole unit the older ones have. I have asked the old owner to try and find the old ones that were missing in the heap of parts i got with the car. Seems strange they went missing when she was pulled apart 5 yrs ago. I will definately contact Don or Mike. Thanks for the tip. Cheers Steve
