STO N SHO License Plate Bracket for 1987, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992 and 1993 LX Mustangs.

Some states require front license plates be mounted on cars which probably makes most Mustang owners cringe. This STO N SHO License Plate Bracket from CJ Pony Parts saves you from having to drill holes in your 1987-1993 LX Mustang's beautiful painted bumper!

Features and Benefits:
- Fully detachable aftermarket bracket
- Two-piece system (license plate holder and base mounting plate)
- Easy to install and remove if necessary
- Allows you to remove (STO) your plate when necessary
- Allows you to display (SHO) your plate when necessary
- Proudly made in the USA!

The STO N SHO is an aftermarket detachable front license plate bracket mounting system that is designed for cars whose appearance would be ruined by use of the factory mounting location. Many states require a license plate on the rear and front of the vehicle, and front license plates tend to take away from the sleek look of the 1987-1993 Fox Bodies.

The STO N SHO is a two-piece, detachable mounting system consisting of a front license plate holder and a base mounting plate. Removal and installation of the license plate is extremely easy, requiring only the pull of a pin. Once the front license plate holder is removed, the base plate is virtually undetectable.

Every STO N SHO was designed with the car show enthusiast in mind. Stay in compliance with state law by simply “STO”ing your front license plate when you want to “SHO” the beauty of your Mustang. Then, reinstall once you are ready to hit the road. There’s no hassle or strain when operating this bracket system: it is simply the best solution for the car enthusiast living in a state that requires a front license plate.

Each STO N SHO is constructed in the USA from premium-quality 5052 and 6061 aluminum. Both plates are precision laser cut and hand burnished. Each tube and rod is machine cut and hand cleaned. After the welds are ground smooth, a high-quality automotive trim black paint is applied and the product is tested to ensure proper operation.

We’re here with a Sto-N-Sho license plate bracket fitting your '87 through '93 Mustang LX.

If you have a present model Mustang you're probably familiar with the Sto-N-Sho bracket. The way it works is the bracket's going to mount underneath your bumper and you have a removable license plate in the front so you don't have to drill the holes in front of your bumper. Sto-N-Sho's made these for the present models for a while and they haven't forgotten about the fox body guys, by introducing this model here that's going to fit your '87 through '93 fox body Mustang. This plate here is going to bolt underneath your front bumper cover. These outer two are going to go to the bumper cover itself. The center actually goes all the way up to your bumper's support to give you a real solid mount. You'll attach your plate to this, slide it in, and it locks in place to keep you legal if you have to have a front plate on your car. If you don't, you can remove it at shows, races, or any other time you don't want the front plate installed.

As you can see on our '93 LX, at some point in time it actually was drilled out in the front for the factory-style front license plate bracket, which fits over the Mustang and overall just kind of looks crappy on the front of your car. The Sto-N-Sho is actually going to mount underneath here so the holes to be drilled won't be visible, and when it's removed you'll barely even know it's there.
