Default FRONT END CONVERSION

I have an 86 GT and need to replace my front bumper. I really like the stalker front bumper that Cervinis offers but on thier website it says its for the 87-93 mustangs. Will it fit my 86 GT?

Also if it does fit will I need to replace my headlights and hood to the 87-93?

It would fit but you will have to use 87 up headlights, hood, GT or Cobra ground effects, GT door mouldings, and a GT or Cobra rear bumper to match all the way around.

sell the car and buy an 87-93, virtually EVERYTHING is different between an aero nose and a 4 eye

thr front clips on those cars are very differnet, mounting locations, headlights, signals, hoods, grilles, bumpers, moulding, fender alignment may be off a lil bit, just dont do it, if you wanna be wiht the great 87-93 5.0's just buy one!
