Map light?
#1
Did any of the 71-73's come with a map light in the center of the dash? My '72 Mach has a open space where there should be one. I was in a large junkyard today that had several very stripped cars, but even where the parts of the dash were present where the light would connect--no map lights.

Yes it was part of the convenience package. Came with a trunk and under the hood light I believe. I have only seen a few of them they are very hard to find.

Too true - one of those things you really have to wait for and keep your eyes peeled.

I have one in my car. The plastic lens is a little melted, cracked, and brownish now. Moral of the story is don't look at the map for too long!

I picked one up on eBay a few months ago, but have not installed it yet, I don't think my harness has the factory plug for it so I'll have to wire it myself.

I found one at the Columbus Ohio swap meet a few years ago for a couple of bucks. There should be a blank plate there if there is no light.

It was an option.
If you add one you will have to hard wire it, there is no plug for it.
I have the lenses
