    Default 1982 Mustang Interior Lighting

    Hey everyone

    I was wondering if 79-82 Mustangs ever came with a flip down map light. I just ordered a headliner with ABS plastic backing for my 82 coupe and I ordered one for a 79-82 with supposedly just the dome light and when it came in there was a cutout in the plastic for a map light as well. So I wanted to ask everyone here if a map light ever came in those years before I throw a fit over it.

    Thank you

    Indeed they did. My '82 GT has the map light. Not sure about 1979-1981 but I would assume so. Also not sure if it was standard, an option or part of an option group.

    My car is rather loaded....only missing PW, PL and Tilt/Cruise.
