    Default 79-82 Fox body Mustang Header Panel?

    I am in need of a header panel for my 81 mustang. Does anyone know of any companies producing these things?

    Nope. You need to find a junkyard. Or use the classifieds here or ebay.

    Is a header panel out of a 1984 the same as the 1981?

    Well hell. I assumed so but I found an 84 header panel. I don't think I wanna risk it and buy it.

    The 83 Bumper cover was a large change from 79-82. I am pretty sure the header panel was changed. I don't think it's going to work.

    Nope, they changed in '83.
    And I believe Foxchassis is correct on the year changes.

    To add a bit more to this info, is the Header panel the same between the standard 79-82 nose and the Pace Car/ GT nose?? Mine is damaged and I assume it'll be a whole lot easier to get a standard nose than my pace car one ??

    Yes, the header panel should be the same. Just the bumper cover was different for the addition of the air dam.

    Didn't the Pace Car/80-81 Cobra/82GT have a different grille insert?

    Different grill yes, but it was part of the bumper cover. It was not a separate insert like on the Capri.

    Well, I was more implying that the insert of the grille was different, and thus the header panel was not the same as the "std" one.

    If your talking about the header panel that holds the headlights behind the nose cover, there is one on Fleabay for a 1982 cheap....
