Window louvers
#1
Hi Guys, Does anyone have the fastback rear window louvers that they dont need anymore, and want to sell them? Im even willing to buy them new aftermarket. Has anyone found where you can buy these aftermarket,and give me your opinion of them.
Thanks,,,,Dave

Hey Dave,
I recently installed the Astra Hammond 2 piece aluminum louvers and am very pleased with it. Only complaint is that the "offset" holes that join the two pieces together actually pulled them apart and so I'm left with about an 1/8" gap. I painted the exposed alloy color black so not noticable and it doesn't bother me. No rattles and easy to install. I can see through the rearview mirror with no problems. Clears the trunk when open. Overall, very happy with it and love the new look. I got mine from CJ Pony's.

I feel love/hate about this louvers in every fastback actually... I like thing to look clean by definition so anything that add complications to the sexy lines mustangs has is negative in my asthetics opinion... However, as this 72 sportsroof if the first fastback i even have sat on (remember in Uruguay there are no mustangs!) i must accept that even if you end up loosing the poor view through the back windshield, stoping a little sun is almost a must...

The other day I went to the supermarket in my car and after a half an hour under the sun, the mustang was like a sauna!...Couldn´t believe how much hot it was in there.... Now i understand the louver thing...

Anyway... go for it man!! it will help youin the summer Tongue

CJs has them for just a tad over $300.

I have the two peace louver. And i am very happy with the quality and the look. You can see a picture in my garage. The only thing is the gab betwen the two Parts, like TheFastNthefurios say. Bud this is not really bad.

I never really cared for louvers either, but when I drove this car in the 80's I remembered it being like a sauna and so I had all the windows , but the front windshield, tinted with 5% limo hoping it would help with the heat. It did help a lottt, but it was dangerous and talk about having "blind spots" Undecided The tint was so dark that even during the day it was almost impossible to see out the rear window. I didn't want that again, so I opt to have this car stay with clear and clean windows. Well, the heat was back again and not to mention my high end Boston speakers were directly exposed to the sun and so something had to be done. My buddy's '70 has louvers and he swore by them, so I was sold. This was the solution to my heat and direct sunlight to my speakers. It works great and I can still see out of my rear window.
