    Hey I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com and I’m checking out these flip down license plate holders, available either motorized or manually operated, fitting all 79 and newer Mustangs. If you live in one of the many states that burden your ride with the unsightly front license plate, I totally feel your pain, not only is it not very attractive, but it also forces you to drill holes into your front bumper cover which is never a good thing. This flip down license plate holder is a great way to hide that front plate whenever you’re at a car show or your next spy mission, and is available in 2 different options: a motorized version that operates with the simple touch of a button, or a more budget friendly manual version. Both options mount to the underside of the front bumper but ultimately it’s up to you to decide where you’d like to place the kit. As you can see on our 2013 GT behind me we had the kit installed dead center on our front bumper. I have seen some of our customers install it on either the left or right side which does look good as well. Depending on which option you decide to go with your install time may vary slightly, for instance the manual version requires no wiring whatsoever, therefore you can expect to get that one done in about 30 minutes, on the other hand the motorized version does require a small amount of wiring in addition to the small work needing to be done underneath the car, therefore you can expect to spend about an hour on that one. Either way, if you should need any help whatsoever, you can always reference the detailed instructions on this product page. Even though Johnny Law may require a front plate in your state doesn’t mean you have to display it all the time, right? Well, if you’re looking for a cool way to hide that front plate at your next show, be sure to check out one of these flip down licence plate holders right here at AmericanMuscle.com

    Great Custom Touch. Lets face it a front license plate is a big eyesore on any Mustang at a car show, but what if there was a way to hide it at a show and have it reappear when you're ready to go? Well now you can with the SpeedForm Flip Down License Plate Holder from AmericanMuscle.

    Manually Operated. The SpeedForm Flip Down License Plate Holder installs under your bumper so that you can slide your license plate down under the front bumper for a clean sleek show winning appearance. And when you're ready to go back on the roads you can slide your license back out to return it to it's original upright position for everyone to see.

    Application. This SpeedForm Manual Flip Down License Plate Holder is designed to fit on all year Ford Mustangs with it's universal mounting kit. Intended for show use only.Technical Note: This is a universal license plate holder that will require drilling into the factory bumper for installation. It is not compatible with the CS/Boss Front Fascia with Splitter, Roush Body Kit, 03-04 Cobra Chin Spoiler or Mach 1 Chin Spoilers. It may not fit with other aftermarket chin spoilers as well.

      Did you know you don't have a license plate on the front of your vehicle?

      Every true mustang enthusiast knows that a front license plate ruins the steaming sexuality of our cars. How could you possibly love "8LT BFQ" standing out like a sore thumb on the front of your insanely customized beast? Some may ask why not get a personal plate? If we think about it for a minute its like having an extremely hot naked woman hold up a license plate in front of her...you get the point. This product allows you to hide the ugly scar your car is otherwise burdened with, and still be street legal. If that doesn't convince you to buy this product, there is also the feeling like being the bad ass Jason Statham from "The transporter" with your own mechanized flip down license plate. Still not convinced? How about it only takes a few (well worth it) minutes to install? Lets do a quick recap, Hot Chick, Mustang, You're a Badass in just a few minutes.

      Flip Down Holder

      The Flip Down License Plate Holder is a great product because being from Maryland you are required to have a license plate on both the front and back of the vehicle. Instead of drilling holes in the front bumper of my Mustang I chose to go with the flip down holder. Its a great product thats easy to install and also doesn't hurt the body of your Mustang that can be seen. If I am driving through Maryland and need to have my license plate seen its there but if I am going to a show or driving in another state and don't want the license plate to be seen to take away from the car I just flip it down and slide it back under the bumper. This def. a great product for your Mustang if your thinking about buying one.

        The spring very well may be defective if it's not functioning properly. We can have a replacement shipped out to you without a problem. I'll be sure one of our CS representatives gets in contact with you shortly and have this handled.

      Great flip down plate for my 2012 Boss

      Perfect fitment for 2012 Boss Mustang. Does not block cooling airflow when installed in center of facia. One problem on installation was the rubber expanding nuts; they pull out, so I had to use the washer head screws on the front attachment points as well as the rear single slot.

      Best option without drilling holes

      Install was a snap with this one. The kit includes everything you'll need to complete the project. Just drill 3 holes in the bottom of the bumper and you're good to go. A small amount of the mounting bracket is visible when the plate is stowed. If you have a v-shaped front, I would recommend installing the plate holder off to the side. The plate hangs a bit low - under 8 inches.

      Works as it should!

      Good product, works like a charm. I am a photography student so i take a lot of images of my car this makes it very convenient to get that ugly rectangle out of the picture. The only downside is that you can see the bracket when the license plate in down. But that is just nitpicking. Either way this is a great product, if your in the market for this, its worth every penny.

      Best idea for a fox body GT

      Looks great on my fox GT. plate sits nice when displayed and folds away perfect when I don't want it displayed. Installation is a breeze and only 3 small holes need to be drilled underneath where they will never be seen. If you have a fox GT and are sick of being hassled by the local "smokeys" this product is for you. Highly recommended!!

      Does not fit 2011 V6 without some cutting

      On the 2011 V6, there is a plastic lip below painted bumper that impedes this license from being flush with the front bumper unless you cut into it. Thankfully, I actually had my local Ford dealership install this for me, and they did a fantastic job. But, beware if you have this body style, because you will either have it sticking out about 3"... or you'll have to cut that black plastic lip to make it flush. Still, it was better than drilling holes into the front of my bumper.
