Since the original Mustang debuted in 1964, the Mustang has developed many distinctly unique design cues. From its broad rear haunches, long hood, short rear decklid, fastback profile, and wide stance, these characteristics have helped enthusiasts and individuals spot a Mustang out on the street. Above all, there is one feature that has made Mustang truly unique: signature tri-bar taillamps. These were implemented as a design feature to help the original pony car stand out from the crowd of muscle cars. Fast-forwarding to 2015, when the S550 launched in New York, one of the first things that everyone noticed was the prominent tri-bar taillights just like the original. From thereon, the Mustang community raved over the distinctive design feature paying homage to the original.
One feature that remained was the ability to have the signature sequential turn signals or hazards when engaged. Furthermore, aftermarket companies like Morimoto and Diode Dynamics have enabled enthusiasts to personalize their taillights further than the OEM variant. So if the signature tri-bar taillamps aren't for you, you can upgrade to a Ford GT style round taillights to stand out even further. To add the already excellent lighting output, enthusiasts tend to upgrade their side marker lights for safety and styling. Altogether, no matter what route you go, Steeda has the taillight options for your S550 Mustang!
For over five decades, the Mustang has been the gold standard in automotive design and sophistication. With many features and characteristics, such as the short rear decklid, fastback profile, long hood, broad rear haunches, and shark nose grille, all of which make the Mustang so legendary. Though all of those characteristics are phenomenal in their own right, one stands out above the rest: the signature tri-bar taillights. These uniquely designed taillamps were inspired by the man who conceived the Mustang in Gary Halderman. He wanted to ensure the competition knew what view they would have to get used to from the rear of America's original pony car.
Five decades later, the Mustang is running with a full head of steam against competition from all around the world. When the S550 Mustang debuted, it marked a revolution for the entire community that embodies the original pony car. Ford ensured that the signature trademarked tri-bar taillamps would be more prominent than ever before. Using modern LED technology, Ford further enhanced the rear-end of the Mustang with maximum lighting output. If that wasn't enough for you, they made sure to integrate the sequential turn signals and hazard lights into the taillights. Furthermore, companies like Morimoto and Diode Dynamics have made it possible for you to upgrade your taillights and side markers to the extreme by offering Ford GT inspired taillights. No matter what you choose, your S550 Mustang will be standing out from the rest of the herd.
