The "original tooling" parts today are less than that, so I have no clue as to the value of this part. The only one I found online was listed at $495. I think I may have to hang onto this one, because it appears that I could not replace it with another one of the same quality.

BTW- I was shocked at the prices of NOS body panels!
That looks identical to the Ford tooling one I welded on today. All the little details look the same. I didnít think to look and see if the curve was there.

It says original tooling and from the Scott Drake line. Haven't got to installing yet, but it looks great. Surprisingly JEGs has quite a bit of sheet metal for the 66 Stang.
Might want to check them out.


Jets showed that they donít stock that part so I looked at Summit and they have it in stock and shipping tomorrow..Great find THANKS

Glad you could find one. Yeah, JEGs has it somewhat hard to find, had to use various searches, but they did have it. I've used MU quite a lot, and they're always good with parts, but for some reason their having problems getting that original equipment tail panel right now, don't know.

Takes a little searching, I should have posted it on my first post.

I bought two, with the first being a standard repro.
The second one I bought was Ford tooling, and it fits better and the details are crisper.
It's not as if the price on the Ford tooling is extravagant, so I should have gotten that one first.
