1973 Mustang Taillights


No car is more iconic or synonymous with a particular time in America than the first-generation of Ford Mustangs. The shape of the front grill, use of chrome and overall styling of the car makes the classic Mustang easily identified by novices and enthusiasts alike. Although all first-generation Mustangs have taillights that incorporate three separate lights on each side, there are major differences between the lights used in certain model years that help to differentiate between the model years. Read on to learn more about these differences, along with the high-quality lights we offer at CJ Pony Parts. Our Mustang experts can help you pick the right ones for your pony car.

1973 Taillights

1973 Taillights vs. Older Models

While all Ford Mustangs manufactured from 1965 to 1973 can officially be described as first-generation, there are many differences between the model years that give each its own personality. It also makes differentiating between the particular model years easier.

Early first-generation Mustangs built in 1964 and 1965 all have a trio of slim, rectangular lights encased in a thick chrome border on either side of the rear end. Mustangs built later in the 1960s feature a similar design to earlier years but have more horizontal space between the individual lights.

1973 Mustang taillights differ from other years in that they are shorter, wider and more rounded. Taillights from this year also feature a thinner chrome border that wraps around the entirety of each light assembly. We aim to make the process of finding parts easy by providing a large assortment of 1973 Mustang taillights to choose from as well as a wide variety of other Mustang specific parts. CJ Pony Parts carries everything from engines and accessories to taillights and apparel, and we offer free shipping on purchases above the minimum order value.
