Hi
What should I expect to have to pay for a set or orginal ribbed tail panels for a 67 mustang fastback.
Thanks Al

They range from $100 a pair with broken off studs to about $500-600 for a pair of mint ones with no broken studs.

Charles is correct, I have one of each (broken studs and near perfect) the near perfect set is likely going on my car. The broken studs have been repaired with aluminum studs by a local welder but we'll see if they are actually visually any good once cleaned up a bit more.

Although a good broken set with one or two studs broken will still run $300 - $400.

Does anyone have an opinion on the reproductions being sold by some of the big name Mustang parts companies? How do they compare in quality and fit to the originals? I know the originals are quite pricey, even when they are literally basket cases.

They are sand cast and not impressive at all.

Rough cast and very heavy.

In my opinion - that is Ford' best looking tail end styling job of all the vintage years.

It rocks!

Nice car.

What does "sand cast" mean?

Why does the weight matter?

The repro sand casting leaves a rough finish while the original are smooth.

Weight is not a huge issue but they mount using the tail light studs not the strongest of attachment points.

By all means please order them and let us know what you think.
