Sometimes, a little creativity and customization goes a long way towards setting your Ford Mustang apart from the pack. Whether you own a First Generation or a late-model Mustang, there are hundreds of different interior and body & sheet metal parts and designs that can help your pony car stand out.
If you are looking for a subtle, yet impactful way to make your Mustang shine, it would be wise to invest in new Mustang valances. Mustang valance panels help maintain your Mustang’s appearance, by concealing the bottom area of your vehicle that is not always the most attractive. Commonly described as, ‘the lower portion of the Mustang bumper’, Ford Mustang rear valances are the long pieces of trim that sit right above your Mustang exhaust.
In addition to covering areas that you would rather leave concealed, Mustang valance panels enhance aerodynamic functions of certain performance-oriented Mustangs. While Ford Mustang valances are mostly for show, they can provide muscle cars with an added boost on the track and on the autocross course. Additionally, some of the larger rear Ford Mustang valances on the newer muscle cars allow room for rear park assist and a dual exhaust. Mustang valances range in size from narrow panels that are placed low to coordinate airflow, to larger pieces that feature an integrated airflow lip at the bottom.
Because they are so close to the surface, your Mustang valances are always subject to damage from rocks, glass, or other hazardous material that might lie in the roadway. As if dealing with road debris was not stressful enough, your Mustang valances will likely take a beating from the elements over time. After many years of providing both structural and decorative support for the lower portion of the car, your factory valances could run their course, and will require replacement parts.
