headlight bezels?
#1

Did the 71 Mustang come with any kind of bezel surrounding the headlights? I don't have them on mine and I can't remember ever seeing them on other 71's. Was it only the 73's that had them? Thanks

The 71&72s only had a mounting ring around the headlights. The square bezels, sometimes referred to as "headlight doors" only came with the 73.

I hate those square bezels; ironically, I have a '73.

We may be saying the same thing but just to be sure..... On a 71-72 Mach 1, the headlight bulb is held in place with a stainless steel retainer fastened to the headlight bucket with 3 screws. That retainer is covered with a narrow, round, black ring secured with a single screw. Chuck

I have just converted my '71 Mach 1 from a '73 grille installed by a PO back to a '71 grille.
On all '71-73 models, the bulb is held in place by a stainless steel ring. On the '71 model, the stainless is covered by a narrow round black ring. On the '73 model, it is covered by a wide rectangular hedlamp door.

That's exactly what I meant. I typed my above post at half past midnight local time and my skills in expressing myself in a foreign language had somewhat suffered... Big Grin

I understand. I could not begin to write in German, French, or Letzebuergesh. Your command of English is very good indeed. Chuck

Well thank you Chuck!
Respect! How did you come up with " Letzebuergesh"? How come you know how that is pronounced in our language? Huh

I was stationed in Deutschland (Flugplatz Hahn) and visited your country on a weekend trip. That is when I learned about your country using three different languages. It seems more different languages may be used now. Chuck

Ok, Hahn is just around the corner.
Where did you go when you visited Luxembourg?
