How rare is rear defroster?[Image: d35a6223c1a1dda75307320405cbb598.jpg][Image: 874bbf4baa80d3f19801f6a55778ddd1.jpg]

Both my cars were tagged as exports, and both have the defrost option.
Over here, I've seen many coupes with the option, practically none on fastbacks.
So I don't know if it's really a rare as option, but what is truly rare, is having the knob on the defrost that is not broken.
I've never seen one not broken in real and both my cars are no exceptions.
Planning to buy convertible switches to be able to finally have the knobs.
As a side note, I was lucky enough to score years ago a spare rear window with the grid for the coupe.

When I was driving the 73 daily, I must say it was handy and used it almost every morning during winter. I use also the grid as antenna and get much better radio reception.

73 modified Grandé 351C. Almost done. 
71 429CJ. In progress

For 1971, out of 149,682 Mustangs (83,108 hardtop), there were 6578 with rear defrost (2857 hardtop), according to Marti's Mustang by the numbers.

The rear window defogger was standard on T-5 Exports. One of the European members posted the showroom brochure once and it stated that.
The 72 mach 1 T-5 sitting in the back yard has RWD. I have several of the switches in the box. When I broke mine early on when new I figured I better stock up, lol. You would catch your pants leg on the knob and snap it off. 
I have complete set up for fastback if anyone interested. I do not have the plastic cover that goes over the connection to the window.


When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??
