Hi I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I’m taking a closer look at two classic grille options for your S197, thanks to Modern Billet™’s upper and lower Billet grilles, available for 05-09 V6 Mustangs, in your choice of either black or polished. As you may have guessed from the name, Modern Billet™ is a company that specializes in making a number of different styling accessories for your Mustang using nothing but quality T6 aircraft grade Billet aluminum. Both of these grille options were designed to do one thing, give the front end of your V6 a totally unique look, by introducing some of that retro vibe, which typically comes along with using a Billet grille. You have two options when it comes to the finish, first up we have the polished option which is here on the table, which will give you a little more of that classic vibe. On the other hand you can go with a black option shown back there on our 2000 V6, which is a little bit more subtle yet still looks awesome. Both the upper and lower grille are constructed using only 100% quality Billet aluminum. One of the biggest features with the upper grille is that it does retain the factory running Pony emblem, thanks to that perfect cutout. That lower grille compliments the upper grille perfectly and really helps complete the look when installed. Speaking of installation, getting both grilles installed is a breeze thanks to the fact that the upper and lower grilles utilize an overlay design. Because of this, getting both grilles installed should only take you 30 minutes apiece. Of course upper and lower grille options are available separately, however if you purchase both at the same time, you’ll not only achieve a much more dramatic look, but you’ll also save yourself a few bucks in the process. So if you’re searching for a way to change the front end of your V6, and you dig the unique look of a Billet grille, then be sure to check out one of these two options from Modern Billet™ available right here at AmericanMuscle.com

Classic Upper Grille. Enhance the front end of your S197 V6 Mustang by installing a Modern Billet Black Upper Billet Grille. Featuring an 15-bar design, this black powdercoated grille is designed to accommodate the factory Pony grille emblem. This eye-catching horizontal bar grille is designed as an overlay that simply attaches over your stock V6 upper grille.

Matching Lower Grille. The optional Black Lower Billet Grille is a great complement to the Upper Grille, giving your V6 a full appearance upgrade. Featuring a 7-bar design, the Lower Grille is a solid one-piece overlay that will easily attach in the factory lower grille opening.

Quality Construction. Designed with the original OEM CAD data from Ford to ensure a perfect fit, both the Upper and Lower Billet Grilles are constructed from strong, yet lightweight billet aluminum. Completed in a durable black powdercoated finish, these grilles offer an aggressive appearance and superior corrosion resistance.

Application. These Modern Billet Black Billet Grilles are specifically designed to fit the 2005-2009 V6 Mustang, excluding the Pony Package. The Upper and Lower Grilles are available separately or together as a Combo Kit. Please select from the ordering options above.

V6 vs GT bumper Will the V6 upper billet grill fit on a on a GT front bumper without foglights?

Dawson

  • If you installed a GT bumper on your V6, you would need to purchase a GT grille as well. We carry many options for the GT; however, we don't have one with just the pony cutout and no fog lights. If you wanted a black upper billet grille without fog lights, we have the Retro Style that eliminates the pony and the fog lights which I've attached below. If you want to check out our other options, please use this link: http://www.americanmuscle.com/05-07-mustang-grills.html

What about the foglights? I want to purchase this upper and lower grill package for my pony, but I am just curious as to what happens to the fog lamps? Do they just no longer exist after you install the new billet grill?

OldSoldier

  • Unfortunately this billet grille is not compatible with the V6 Pony Package Mustang. It's an overlay style grille, not a full replacement.

i dont have a lower grille right now, will this still fit on my on my mustang?

CrystalRose

  • The lower grille is actually an overlay to the stock grille. If you don't have one, you'd also need to purchase the replacement to install this one on top. I've attached the link below. Hope this helps!

Can I still use this if I don't have a stock grille on the bottom to begin with? Bought car without a stock bottom grille. I know they use an overlay method for easy install but can I still put this on somehow?

  • Unfortunately you will need to have a stock lower grill in order to install the Modern Billet Black Billet Grille (05-09 V6).

    Review from Modern Billet Black Retro Billet Grille - Lower (05-09 V6)

    Lower Billet Grille

    Very good product from American Muscle, It's a little bit of a tight fight under the fender however my father and I did it on our driveway without jacking the car up. Looks very mean. P.S you get water spots on the lower and upper part of the grille, I clean it using a cheap spray wax just to keep it black and glossy.

    Good Look Bad Fit

    Found instructions vague and not helpful. Seemed to be hard with bumped on to install lower grille as visibility and hand reach was an issue. Upper Grille was a breeze and was on in less than a half hour but this one took time and the fitment is sub par.

    Great product

    This grill changed the lame honey comb grill of my mustang into something awesome. My only problem with it is that the J-hooks have no business being part of the installation kit, because they honestly do not fit anywhere. Other than that, Great product, looks awesome!

    Review from Modern Billet Black Retro Billet Grille - Lower (05-09 V6)

    Excellent Retro Look!

    The lower grille was actually purchased as a combo with the upper retro billet grille (black). Great quality product and amazing retro look for your S197. All install parts were included as described. Both the upper and lower grille installed easily with basic hand tools. (I did have to remove the running pony emblem to get an exact fit for the upper grille.) While the upper grill has a very snug fit, the lower grill took a little more work. The metal is very good quality and has shown no sign of rust, as the car sits outside and has sat through snow and rain. The lower grill does not quite fit flush inside the opening and may need to be bent into place. Overall this is minor adjustment, and I simply left the grill as is since it only had a slight overhang from the top. Again, if you are going for a retro look or one that resembles the shelby, this is a great product.

    Looks nice but could have fit better

    I have a 2008 with the Pony Package. I am not sure if they came with different lower grilles, but this product did not fit right. The hardware that came with came no where close to fastening this lower grille to the bumper. Actually used 4 black zip ties and hold it in place and you cannot even tell. Good quality product, but the hardware needs changed

    • Response from AmericanMuscle

      If you are missing the stock lower grille from a non-Pony Package equipped V6 and would like to install this lower billet grille, we do offer a replacement stock lower grille, SKU 87004: http://www.americanmuscle.com/lower-front-grille-0509.html and it would be everything you would need for installation.

    Not all of the hardware would fit.

    The shop was unable to get all four brackets attached due to the shape of the brackets and other attaching hardware. My lower grill is pretty secure though with the just the two brackets holding it. It doesn't feel like it is going to fall off or anything. It looks great with the upper grill and tri-bar pony emblem that I also purchased at the same time. I installed the upper grill myself in about half an hour. I would have done the lower grill myself but I have trouble getting up and down from the ground to work under the car.

    Not too bad

    I didnt realize that this product wasnt a replacement grille, its just an overlay.So i went ahead and took the time to remove the lower grille entirely and make custom brackets to fit just the new grille to the bumper and i must say it looks a lot better than having the honeycomb behind it. The fitment was a little off even doing it the normal way, had to bend the grille into shape but all in all a great touch to the front end, love AM.
