Mustang Map Light Assembly
Illuminate the interior of your Fox by replacing your defective 1985-1990 Mustang map light with this new assembly from Daniel Carpenter Restoration! Attached to the roof of your Fox is a map light assembly with a swiveling body to direct light to the driver or passenger holding the map on long trips. Over time, chrome would start to pit, the internal switch contacts would corrode and the bulb would burn out which left the light useless, and finding a replacement proved to be a task. This led many owners to remove the entire assembly and toss it in the trash. Now you can replace it with this exact reproduction of the original!
