    1987 - 93 Ford AM/FM cassette radio with "Bluetooth" for iPhone/iPad listening

    Now this is pretty slick.

      Can confirm that fuel pump hanger looks correct for a wagon. I haven't put it side by side with a sedan one, but the difference as I understand it is the pump is less parallel to the tank wall on the wagon - it leans inward more. This has something to do with the inward curved shape of the back of the tank. I made an offer on it, because I have some sort of compulsive problem...

      The radio with Bluetooth is slick indeed. If they took it just a bit further and made provisions for a microphone (extension lead to put it up by the visor, perhaps) so it could be used for phone calls, that would be ideal.

        The seller may be able to do it. He has done quite a few different radios and modifications and may take special orders?

            1979 Ford LTD Hood ornament

            I believe ONLY 1979 rocked these hood ornaments.

              This is tempting. My father had something similar in his 1985 Mustang GT. Memories.

                Glass inserts on the '79 Hood ornaments. Need to find a Mercury version for Grand1.

                The Theft Guard is neat and not a bad price in my opinion.

                  This guy went to the desert and picked up the squeaky clean parts.

                  I did the same...I have a pair of front fenders from Arizona in case I ever need them!

                    New 1982 - 1986 mercury grand marquis colony park front bumper new old stock

                    Pretty! Just the bumperetts. Will fit on crown victoria as well. The bumperette location is off not correct for crown victorias other than the 1987 crown victoria because of shortages. The bumperettes correspond to the grille lenghts.

                        Are those painted bezels a 1987 only thing? I ask since that one has a E7 part number on the box, while the one above has a D9 part number. I see a lot of the fully chrome ones, but not so much the painted ones.

                          I couldn't tell you anything other than my 87 crown victoria came with painted bezels too. I have always wondered about this myself.

                            80-86 Ford and Mercury have a D9 number
                            87 Ford has an E6 number (do not understand this, but thats what the book says)
                            87 Mercury is an E7 number
                            88 Ford is an E8
                            89 Ford is an E9
                            88+ Mercury is an E8

                            appears that 1987 is a unique item. No idea what differs from 88 to 89 Ford bezels but 1988 also appears to be unique somehow.

                              Maybe 88 is painted and 89 to 91 full chrome?

                                I don’t know why, but I feel like a post exists about a screw hole not being in the right place for the bezels when a different year one was used on an ‘88 LTD (someone adding clear lenses). Maybe I’m imagining that, though.

                                I know I also have a decent set of bezels Nick gave me that are the painted inserts. I got the ‘87 with full chrome ones installed. I don’t know if he ever changed them out himself though.
