Here we have a new in the package C9ZZ 16856 A NOS Ford Hood Molding for a 69 Mustang, Mach 1, Grande, Sports Roof, or Convertible as it fits them all. You might be aware that the quality engineered Ford aluminum in the original units was stronger than repo and the factory supplier finished the ends unlike aftermarket suppliers. If you have already purchased a repo or know someone who has you know exactly what we're talking about. It had a hard time even staying on the hood, the cheaper copies certainly did not have the same standards as the original piece.This NOS piece came to us in the wrapper although the previous owner was rough on it. The underside has one minor crease which was hard to picture and would not be noticible once installed because it is on the bottom side. We believe this flaw could probably removed or tended to by a craftsman who should not hurt the finish. With this description we offer it to you as flawed. The hardware that was dingy so we decided to clean it for the auction. Maybe you are one who has suffered the unfortunate difficulties associated with repros, and are ready to make it right with the correct, factory original piece part number C9ZZ-16856-A, this is your auction! Ford Quality, good parts, and proper fit, what more could you ask for? This is a slightly flawed out of the wrapper NOS piece, as you can see in pictures the wrapper has suffered shelf wear over the years, you can also see the hood molding is new Please note that although there is some minor shelf wear, this piece would be fine for the daily driver as is and it could be upgraded up with some TLC from a skilled restorer to bring it to its intended appearance. I would rather undersell it over describing it as flawed and promising less so you will be well informed and pleased when you get it .
