Rear window louvers
#1
Hey guys, I was just wondering who is all running the rear window louvers? I think that is going to be my next purchase for the mustang. I saw a decent set from Summit racing that are aluminum. Also if you are running them post up a few pics and where you purchased them. Thanks Kevin

Were the rear window louvers ever a factor or dealer option for our cars? Also I imagine the louvers would block the little rear view that we have, although they do look good.

When I had the Mach 1 I had a set but the car got wrecked before I put them on. I sold them. I like the look and back in those days (mid to late 80's) they were popular on all kinds of cars. Seems like they are less popular now a days.

It's your car! If you want them I say 'go for it'. They would look good with your silver/black color combo.

Personally, the visibility out the rear window of my '71 Mach is terrible enough that I don't need anything more to interfere with it. Just something to consider...

see that looks pretty good. Remember the camero's that had the big louvers and plastic kinda things on the side... not good.

I wish they'd contour to the window a little better. I don't like that gap near the bottom.
