Muscle Car Research is proud to offer a brand new, economy reproduction of the C7ZZ-6540427-A rear license plate lamp shield used on the following vehicles:
This part is made from a recycled rubber material that is similar to, but not identical to, the masticated material Ford used to produce the original C7ZZ-6540427-A shield. The texture is rougher than plain rubber sheet material. There are no visible cotton fibers. Here's a close up shot of the material texture:
I have a limited number of this part and will probably not produce any more once my stock is sold. Please check out our C7ZZ-6540427-A Rear License Plate Lamp Shield if you need an accurate reproduction. It's interesting to note that this part appears in "early" editions of Ford's Master Parts Catalog (it's listed in my February 1970 edition, for example), but it's not included in the final 1965 - 1972 edition that was printed in 1975. The original part appears to have gone obsolete from Ford before the 1975 edition was printed. As such, it doesn't usually appear in illustrations or other literature that references the later catalog. A similar shield used on 1969 and 1970 Mustangs can be seen in this illustration from the Ford Master Parts Catalog:
Note the orientation of the cut-outs when mounting the shield! When properly installed the shield will roll under the top edge of the rear bumper. This part is proudly made right here in the USA.
