In most cases it is not a plug and play
The wiring won't be there

+2, I bought one for my 73 convert and the harness was not there. One of these days I will check the wiring diagram and figure out how to wire one in. Ford should have made these standard on the converts since there is no dome light (unless you park under a street light or a full moon with the top down)

I will see if I have the harness too. Most parts places probably have tons of them in the cars.

I found mine on e-bay. It's true the wiring isn't there but it was a pretty easy fab since I had an extra bullet connector in the spare parts box. (never, well almost never throw anything away).

Last night I went to the Route 66 event in San Bernardino, Ca. And I'll tell you driving around in the dark trying to read a map and find my parking space it was just the ticket.

My mustang is named Beth.

As in

Beth I hear you calling and I'll fix you right this time.
but both the kids need braces and I just can't spare a dime.
Just a few more paychecks and I'll get right back to you.
Oh Beth what can I do? Beth what can I do?

I think the light is supposed to work two ways, one when the door is open or the interior lights are turned on at the switch and can also be turned on by a switch on the light itself. You could just hot wire it with the bullit connector and use the switch only.

homelessmexican,

below is the wiring of the map light. I'm not sure if they mixed up 53/54 at the connector.
