Left hand tail light

Damn, my wife had to move my car and she backed into a fence. Since I am in Iraq all I have is the net to find stuff and I can't seem to find a new tail light besides from ford for $331. Does anyone know where i can find a stock Left Hand Tail light for a 99 SVT Cobra. It's different from all the other years.

Re: Left hand tail light

331 bucks just for a tailight.. man try ebay.. i backed up once and hit my right rear view mirrior, i bought a used one on ebay for 30 bucks.

Don't go straight to the dealer, look at some aftermarket places, I bet they will definitely be cheaper.

good luck

Re: Left hand tail light

Any Mustang place should have them, they are wising up now and sometimes we like the stock parts.

Start off at American Muscle I know they have them.
There's also Tously (sp?) Ford which a lot of folks on here recommend. Or our site sponsor Anderson Ford Lincoln. I'm not 100% sure if these two sites have it though.

If they can't help you, you can head over to Late Model Restoration or Dallas Mustangs. They should supply the OEM light.

The prices, if I remember correctly are only slightly cheaper then Ford's quoted price. I want to say in the $200's, but that could also be for the pair. They do sell them separate too.

Re: Left hand tail light

car-part.com might be another option if you can't find it elsewhere, i don't know what kinda prices they have cause i didn't search it.

EDIT: well i searched the entire us cause i didn't know where you lived... well nvm, i was hoping the search page came up, but it didn't, i saw prices ranging from 65 bucks to 192, and a ton that you have to call for. you could probably call some of the cheaper ones if they aren't in your area and see if you can have it shipped :dunno:

also, ebay might be a good option, my brother in law did that, infact, they sent him both tail lights, good thing cause the design changed some time for that model (the reflective part was a different patter, housing was the same) and i think he got both of those for 10-30 bucks... i remember it was cheap.

Re: Left hand tail light

So I told my wife just to take it in to the insurance since I am not there to fix it. They told her the blackout tail lights were standard on the 99 Cobra, you could get either one. Works for me, thanks for all the help though.

Re: Left hand tail light

Check out my pictures, you can see my tail lights. They are the stock tail lights for the 99 Cobra but they are blacked out or smoked whatever you want to call them. The place my wife took the car said that in 99 that was an option you could get from the factory. I didnt know that.

Your insurance adjust has absolutely no idea what he is talking about. The only difference b/w the 99 and 01 Cobras to any other taillight on a 99-04 mustang is the Amber colored patch. No 'blackout' option was available from Ford. You will have to have your tail lights tinted or purchase a set from somebody like latemodelrestoration.com that are already smoked.

Re: Left hand tail light

Was he talking about the middle piece between the tail lights? In '99 GT's had the rear deck blacked out from the factory.

Re: Left hand tail light

Re: Left hand tail light

Yeah I dont know I wasn't there. I can't imagine it being standard. She takes it in Monday and she should get it back Wednesday or Thursday so we will see. Either way I can get the blacked out tail light pretty cheap.

Re: Left hand tail light

Yeah we were all right, the insurance lady was out of her mind. They have to keep my car another week because they ordered a new blacked out tail light. I would be pissed but I am not home to drive it anyway.

Re: Left hand tail light

I would be more concerned about the dent then the tail light.

Re: Left hand tail light

The dent is really small and is already fixed. I am having them email the site where they ordered the tail light because i searched for weeks trying to find the same one I had just to find out they were discontinued. The insurance says they found a new one. I guess i will find out soon.
