Looking to replace my grill ornament tri color running horse as it's a little beat up.

I can only find it at NPD and the price is $21.50 which I'm ok with. Just bugs me to pay $9.00 for shipping.

https://www.npdlink.com/product/ornament-grille/106213

Anyone know of another source?

Thanks

No Mustangs at the moment.
A great source for hard to find parts:

Any MCA National Show in the concours section. You just have to be extremely clever and quick to remove the part that your interested in before anyone notices.

Long time Pontiac guy, jumped ship, now driving a '71 Grabber Green Mach 1 with "J" code 429 Cobra Jet, close-ratio 4 speed, 3.50 Traction-Lok rear.
Are the colors on it washed out, or does it have some other damage? If the colors just need refreshing, perhaps you know someone who is good at pin-striping. Someone with a steady hand could reapply the colors. I had a friend do that years ago on the side emblems of a GTO. The same guy redid around the 4 speed shifter on a Trans Am using chrome paint. In both cases it looked factory afterward.

Previous owner drilled a hole to place a screw through the bottom to hold it in place.

Figured it was time to replace it.

CJPony - $20.93 plus $6.00 shipping. Difference = $3.57 - Enough for a Bud Light Draft.

Sounds good.

But after winning 2 beer towers at the South Jersey 39th Mustang show yesterday, I have all the beer I need.

I can pee better beer.

Really rolling the dice....

FWIW, I'd rather pay the extra money twice over to NPD given the utter shenanigans that CJ is known for. Even if you discount 80% of CJ's issues to their customers, that's still a pretty terrible track record.

Guess someone knew better than I.

Got the email from CJ that the part is out of stock and on back order.

So, Don I will order it from you as I should have done in the first place.

Thanks

Done

Thanks again.
