    Paying the house off is priority. Living debt free is great especially in these uncertain times.

    Holy crap! I didn't realize those things are selling for so much now. $130 for one door control panel. Jesus.
    I'm glad I saved the ones from my CV and my 91 GM before that.. .though they're all in different states of brittle plastic woes.

    Yeah. I am glad you bumped this. I would have thought it would have never sold...proves me wrong.

    Found this under hood light that reels out. It was a factory option for some of the 80s panthers. New in package is a plus.
    I almost bought this for a make offer of $29 + shipping.
    I found another seller who had two new ones for a good deal.

    If that tach wasn't so expensive I'd be VERY tempted to get it.

    Tom, I had no idea the under hood light was optional on panthers. I have a Ford one with an 82 part# from a truck on my LTD, that's good to know it may have come with one if ordered

    This is identical to the one that was stock on my 96 silverado. Must have used them for all manufacturers.

    Hi Phil

    How tempted are you? You may be able to pry one from my hoard.

    My 83 MGM has one. I think it was a dealer option. I have not found this particular light mentioned in any of the ordering books.
    Hobbs made this light. They were used with GM vehicles, mostly light trucks. Ford used them. Only differences between the Ford/Gm/ aftermarket light is the connector to the vehicle harness and some came with a metal mounting bracket.

    That 87 MGM looks like a sharp car. I believe the owner's comment about being kept inside during the winter. The interior does not appear to be faded like most red cloth interiors I have seen.
