    Are those painted bezels a 1987 only thing? I ask since that one has a E7 part number on the box, while the one above has a D9 part number. I see a lot of the fully chrome ones, but not so much the painted ones.

    I couldn't tell you anything other than my 87 crown victoria came with painted bezels too. I have always wondered about this myself.

    80-86 Ford and Mercury have a D9 number
    87 Ford has an E6 number (do not understand this, but thats what the book says)
    87 Mercury is an E7 number
    88 Ford is an E8
    89 Ford is an E9
    88+ Mercury is an E8

    appears that 1987 is a unique item. No idea what differs from 88 to 89 Ford bezels but 1988 also appears to be unique somehow.

    Maybe 88 is painted and 89 to 91 full chrome?

    I don’t know why, but I feel like a post exists about a screw hole not being in the right place for the bezels when a different year one was used on an ‘88 LTD (someone adding clear lenses). Maybe I’m imagining that, though.

    I know I also have a decent set of bezels Nick gave me that are the painted inserts. I got the ‘87 with full chrome ones installed. I don’t know if he ever changed them out himself though.

    You get the award for good memory.

    To add to this discussion, my 87 CV had the painted (And that odd spaced MGM bumper used in some 87 CV). My 82 had the chrome (and a correct bumper lol). Chrome for the win. Correct bumper for the win too.

    Guess this would be kinda hard to find if it is wagon specific to their wide rears.

    They're smoking crack on the price though.

    It is priced about $3,000 more than what it cost new in "82. With inflation, it might be equal now. Still too much.

    Default 1979 Mercury Marquis Front Bumper Ford NOS Part # D9MY17757C

    Id be careful picking up this one. It looks really really rough. A lot of pitting that will never clean up fully. I wouldnt want to pay more than u pull junkyard price for something this beat up. Just look at the lack of care taken in the photos. Just placed on dirt and rocks to take pictures.

    Default 1979-1981 Ford Crown Victoria Grille Chrome LTD EOAB-8150-BWB OEM





    The plastic covering some of the grille is interesting. Looks factory. Seller is from Minnesota. Possibly to block some air from radiator so car can heat up in cold winters? Thoughts?

    Gotta wonder if that shrouding was a cold weather option. I think the portion where its fully open is where the transmission cooler would usually sit on an equipped car, so it would make sense to leave that opened up a bit more.

    That’s an odd one. Maybe our northern members have seen some of these?

    Probably something you'd get automatically if you optioned your car with a block heater?

    That is the first time I have noticed that air block on a Ford. I have an ordering book in the archives. If I have the time, I can look up what comes with the block heater/ winter package.
