1969 Fastback Trunk Light

Does anyone know if the trunk light was standard equipment on 69 fastback? I see the lime colored wire that it would plug into above the driver side fender but do not know if this was just a standard harness and light was optional or has the light been removed at sometime in the stangs life. Any feedback is appreciated.

I've never seen a trunk light for a 69/70 from Ford. I know mine never had one.

What was included with the courtesy package and how can you tell if equipped? I see that lights from original cars that match up to the harness plug above the drivers fender as in mine are available out there.

If you got a Marti report, it should show the option of "Visibility Group" on you car. Also, the fact that you have a plug on the drivers fender is a decent sign your car had that option, because I am pretty sure the rear taillight harness was different for those cars, and my cars don't have the plug you are talking about.

From the Mustang Recognition Guide, the Visibility Group consists of...

LH remote chrome mirror (n/a Mach 1)
Glove box lock
Lights in : trunk, glove box & ash tray
Parking brake warning light
underdash courtesy light (hardtop only)
lighted ignition switch

Thanks for the feedback. I did get a deluxe Marti Report but do not have the Visibility Group listed. Only the sports appearance package. The car does not have the other options you listed besides the under dash lights and deluxe seat belts and warning light.

Canít say for sure about 1969 cars, but on 1970 cars that had the rear seat back that opened into the trunk, the optional wire for the trunk light was always routed along the main harness that went under the driver side door sill plate and then along the left tire well area. On cars that had a fixed rear seat, this wire harness sometimes traversed across the seat back from the right side and had its trunk light lead sprag off during this cross-over. In either case, it was always a green wire (w/ thin yellow stripe for 1970) having a red bullet connector female end.

If your car doesnít have the correct main harness for the wire to plug in, you could simply extend it and go to the fuse block and tap in there, although my schematic shows where the 1970 factory source actually was.
