I've got a '90 XR7 and was wondering if any cougars had a lit tail panel like the later birds, and if so can it be swapped in as with the birds?

Thanks

Unfortunately, none of the Cougars have lighted trunk panels. Which I always thought was funny considering the Cougar was supposed to be the more luxurious, feature rich sister to the Thunderbird.

I thought that was the case. Also from what I've seen the late cougars had significantly different rear light assys, so I didn't think they would swap easily anyway. Guess I'll have to look for a spare to cut up and install lighting. Looked a some pretty cheezey bulk LED light strips at swap over w/end that might be able to fit between the 2 layers of the assy. Thought about cutting up light panels from late model Lincoln or Dodge and grafting 'em in

Thanks

The tail light styling is a little different but they are all interchangeable. As long as you get the corresponding brake light assemblies.
