1969 69 1970 70 Mustang Mach 1 Boss GT Sport Lamps

Wednesday, July 15th, 2009

If you are looking for an original sport lamp for your Mach 1 or Boss Mustang and can’t find one, here is a tip for you.  Often times, reproductions are not available and originals are scarce.

If you don’t mind using a substitute for an original sport lamp, there is a substitute that is readily available.

Find an early Ford Maverick or Mercury Comet GT (1969-1972).  The sport lamps on these vehicles are very similar to Mustang sport lamps.  The list below outlines the similarities and differences:

SIMILARITIES

  1. Mustangs, Mavericks and Comets used the same chrome bezel.
  2. Mustangs, Mavericks and Comets used the same lens and light housing.

DIFFERENCES

  1. The wire pigtail and plug differed on all cars and varied from year to year.
  2. The bracket that holds the light in the grille differed on all cars and varied from year to year.

If you are able to find a Maverick or Comet sport lamp, you can easily modify or fabricate it to fit your Mustang.   You will need to modify the wire pigtail to fit the wire loom in your Mustang.  You will also need to fabricate a bracket to hold the light in the grille.
