FOUND Replacement Head Light Bucket for RH of Car


My Headlight bucket on Passenger side of car was damaged. Since it is made of pot metal there is really no way to repair it. Also you need a 1964 replacement since the reproductions only do the Non-beveled design. So... after a long search on Ebay, Craigslist, and various mustang parts companies... I found one 20 minutes down the road. Central Maine Mustang ROCKS! Emery Pratt had one left over from a restoration of another early model stang. I am SO.... relieved. I don't have to decide between replacing both or never finding one need.
