Tail lights
#1
What do you guys think of these ideas? I have a coupe and think it looks fairly decent. It looks like the coupe in the pictures has Cougar tail lights and the fastback has Shelby tail lights.

I also really like what is done with the rear bumper and exhaust tips in this picture.

I've seen the Shelby and Cougar taillights used in different years of Mustangs before. If you like it go for it! Just no Altezza lights please.

Both tail lights look ok to me, although I probably wouldn't do it myself. The exhaust tips are cool, but where would you put the license plate without detracting from something else?

I like the third pic but I would do an LED retrofit as well as getting rid of the diffusers. I also love the exhaust.

I found those pics last year, surfing the web.
I really like the idea of Shelby taillights (both styles were Cougar taillights) on a 71-73. I always wanted to do the swap on mine but I am not sure how well they will fit or how hard it is to install them.
That's what kept me from doing it so far.

The Shelby lights look ok, but maybe a little bit plain. But I'm really diggin' the Cougar lights in the coupe!

The cougar lights look cool, must be easy enough as I have seen the seveal time before.
I wouldn't do it to mine but it depends on how the whole car will look at the end of the day
The third pic real isnt that cool but maybe it fit with the theme of the whole car

Yeah so I checked out what it would cost to do 1967 Shelby Tail Lights. At CJ Pony Parts, the panel from Dynacorn, the bezels, gaskets, sequential wiring harness and light buckets would cost about 800 bucks. A little steep for a minor detail, think I will stick with a new 71-73 tail light panel from Dynacorn and the original tail lights. Good point rvrtrash, I didnt think about the lisence plate at all, you would almost have to move the gas filler to the side of the car and put the lisence plate between the tail lights...pain in the neck!
