Under hood light
« on: January 16, 2015, 02:18:24 PM »
I am getting around to installing the correct underhood light on my 67 coupe and it prompts me to ask:

Did Ford offer an option or sell an genuine accessory underhood light kit for 2008 Mustang?

Thanks for information, save me spending much add'l time on this.

Comment: My '67 has the hood light, the hood stays up on its own, glove box light.  My 08 has none of those features.   Both have a trunk light.  Interesting to make the comparison.

I don't disagree, and one might add the interior appointments as well.  By comparison, the 67's looks deluxe. 

Not that I am complaining, I like my 08 GT.

It's the same reason that '05'-09's have Map lights.. Back in '68-'68...That was only a Luxury for Deluxe Faskbacks, but Yes, I agree, One wonder why there is no hood lights in '05'-09's.
