    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.

      Tucked away

      Very easy install, good quality,love to be able to hide plate under car when I want. The front plate takes away from car looks but, being able to fold under car is great and easy.

      Almost perfect.

      It works and I like how it will fold and not break if you hit a steep driveway but the spring is weak and will not push the license plate back up.

      Easy to install. Looks great.

      Very easy to follow the install instructions. Had to install a rubber grommet to level the plate bracket. Looks a lot better than mounting on the bumper. Easily folds under. Unfortunately I live in a state that still requires a front plate.

      Not very robust

      The spring that forces the license plate up somehow popped out of place less than a couple of months after install (professionally installed as well). Even if the spring didn’t come out of place the overall quality is not in line with the price point.

      Lowered cars beware

      Nice product if you're car isn't lowered. I ending up tearing it off with the road twice before I threw it in the garbage. Couldn't figure out how to mount it higher without modifying the bumper.

      In New jersey you need a front licenses plate and the cops are cracking down --to make money $70.00 ticket and I hear you have to go to the police station to show you mounted it This product made my 2018 GT have the plate with no holes in bumper I did not even drill I just used an ice pick to push a hole in under rubber plate and put the screws in Highly recommend it

      I'm not legal in Minnesota

      Great product! I like that you can't see the license plate when it's folded under. Be extra careful when marking your spots for the holes you'll drill. I little off and you're not quite centered. I'm not but I'm the only one that knows!!! I should have installed it before my wife had her little meet-and-greet with Minnesota's finest!

      Great purchase

      This license plate holder is a must have for anyone who goes to car shows. It works flawlessly and makes your car look great! I installed mine with zip ties but I'm sure rivets would work too. My only caution is to watch out when you're pulling forward in a space. I've had to readjust it a few times because it hit the curb, and it's not an easy fix.
