Mustang Project has been developing exciting LED lighting systems for classic and sport cars since 2001.   Our newest project is for the 2005-2009 Ford Mustangs.   When the 2005 Mustang body style was introduced by Ford it was an instant classic!   The body styling is that of the original 1967 Mustang modernized for the high tech engine and body components now available.  

We think all the 2005-2009 Mustang needs is a really great tail light system to complete the classic 67 look Ford was going for when it designed it.   So we have taken the best of the 67 Shelby Mustangs and put together an easy to retro fit tail light kit which completes the great 67 Shelby look and adds LED sequential lighting effects to boot!

Project Status:  

The electronics have been designed that utilize our patented circuit design found in all of Mustang Project's products.    

Prototypes have been completed of the new tail light panels and housings.  Our test installations look great as you can see here below.  

What we need now is tooling for the plastic parts.  That is where you come in!  Be part of this great product and help us build our tooling faster and better.  The more money we raise the faster we can construct the tooling and the sooner this great product will reach the marketplace and be available to all you Mustang lovers!

The kit will be comprised of three parts:   The right and left housing pieces fit right in where the old housings are.  Just unscrew the old and bolt in the new. If you return your old housings to us we will be able to give you a $80 core refund to reduce the price of ownership.   The center section will attach without screws or any drilling to the rear trunk panel.  Installation takes about an hour.

Here is a short video showing some of the prototype electronics.  Notice how the shape has changed a bit since this video was made.

We plan to offer two versions of the kit.  One with the original 2005-2009 gas cap showing as installed from the factory and one without.

The kit will come with a textured black finish but will also be available in a ready to paint gray finish for those that want their own custom color applied.

Kit Without Gas Cap

The kit without the gas cap has a great spot to put an optional Mustang Emblem like this (sold separately) .

Risks and challenges

With any project there are always things that can go wrong. For this project the fit and finish of tooled parts will be critical. One reason we want to use kickstarter for this project is so we can get more funds to build better tooling faster. Once the tooling is made it is possible it does not meet our quality standards and back it goes! This can cause a delay but ultimately we will have a better product as we won't accept just any old vendor's quality. Mustang Project has been building these kinds of kits for over 13 years so we are confident we can pull this one off too.
