    I found a good pair of 67 cougar lights for $90.00 plus shipping. Is that a fair price?

    Has any body used 69 camaro taillights? They look like they would be a perfect fit with the contours of the rear panel. Though I hate the thought of chevy parts on my car, they would look good and different!

    I think anyone that would put chevy tail lights on a Maverick should be tarred and feathered...oh yeah, and beaten with a stick!!! :deadhorse :bouncy: :bouncy: :bouncy:

    I dont agree with it. Maybe my car was so fast I needed to slow it down. So I put a chevy part on it.

    Can you use the shelby style tailights, either original or led on a comet?

    They are not factory Shelby/Thunderbird lights.

    They look like an aftermarket knock off of the Shelby taillight that bolts onto a Mustang using existing holes. They probably are 'Shelby' lights, just not Ford parts or stock style repops.

    They look easier to install in a stock Maverick tail panel than the original T Bird/Shelby/Cougar lights.
