Many used items in our picture(s) have been cleaned and/or bead blasted prior to being photographed to show condition and detail. The item you receive, in most circumstances, will be pulled from the donor car and shipped to you without being cleaned. We do not retake pictures each time a used item sells. Pictures are a good indicator of what you will receive, but not all used parts age the same. On high dollar parts, email us and we can send a few pictures of the actual part available.
"Core" Items: If we use the word "Core" in the title of the product, the item has been deemed rebuildable, but has not been rebuilt. The item you receive, in most circumstances, will be pulled from the donor car and shipped to you without being cleaned.
Used grade "B" taillight lens with no heavy scratches, stress cracks or chips. You will want to polish the lens to make it look as good as the one we have pictured with Novus, Mequires or another like plastic polish. You will want to put a 1969 lens on your 1969 Cougar and a 1970 lens on your 1970 as 69 and 70 have different vertical rib spacing on the chrome bezels which creates different wear patterns.
Ford part # C9WY-13451-A.
