    Unlike the 1968 Cougar headlight switch, the 1967 and 1971-73 version does not have the three vacuum ports connected to it. Don't be fooled . . . Most vendors will sell you a Mustang switch and tell you it is the same. Visually it may look the same but internally it has a circuit breaker designed for a two headlight system, the Cougar has four headlights. If you only use the low beams you would be fine but if you have all four lights on you will soon experience a blackout. If your original used switch also is cutting out it may be because someone installed after market bulbs that draw too much or your switch needs replacement.

    NOTE: does not include C-shaped spacer / adapter bracket for mounting to the dash. Use your original, or ask about our used units.

    Shipped a Napa, P/N HL6038 (one of two parts on Napa's web site). Shipped quickly

    I have a '67 Cougar and bought this switch because the headlight switch knob/rod came out in my hand and I couldn't get it to stay put in the switch, thus being without headlights.

    Though identified as for a '71-'73 Cougar, the application guide indicated it would work with a '67. Well, yes and no. The switch overall fits perfectly. However, the triangular shaped headlight switch rod from my '67 did not fit through the (too small) opening in plastic part with the triangular hole and the metal rotation stops.

    I took the two switches apart and found all parts were identical in form factor (the conical spring is a little longer and stiffer in the new switch), so I swapped the nonfitting plastic part for the older one and used the new conical spring. This took a few fumbling attempts, but I eventually learned a couple tricks to make it work. Probably would've had an easier time of it if I'd used a hobby vise to hold the switch while I assembled it, instead of just using my hands out at the car on the street.
