I was browsing And i have seen these lights before but until Now i never really paid attention to them And I want them.......there the same lights as mine but instead of having the ugly orange reflector its black....I know it wasnt painted either I have read that some escorts came stock with this Ill show you pics to understand better.

Mine


The ones I want


Maybe I should have put this in the want to buy section.....If anyone has these tails I'll gladly buy them off of you 8)

:? um......the only real difference between the two that I see is that your red goes around the white for the reverse lights...and that the orange reflectors on his are painted grey.

Other than that they look exactly the same...his look slightly newer because the font of the lettering is slanted...

I think it may be the tracer tail lights that have the black around the edges. As you can see he has a 3rd gen escort badge on those ones, which means he took off the old badge which could have been a tracer. I haven't looked closely enough at tracers to know for sure, but I would say that is probably what they're from.

91Sleeper - you are absolutely correct - those are Tracer rears with the black surround. The badge is off a 3rd gen.

95SittinLo - my 93 sedan had the Tracer rears with black surround strips. It's a 15 minute swap - all you gotta do is find the donor car.

Hey, beaverboy, maybe I can shed some light on the subject..hehe
anyway, I just sold a 93 ford escort LX sedan four door about 4 months ago with that exact taillight setup on it...I dont know if all 93 sedans have them or not though..but good luck..I have a 93 gt now and I actually liked the lx rear end better. so i'll have to agree with you, the orange sucks.
later

I may be wrong, but I think the difference is simply a matter of year. Older has black, newer has orange (yes, I know it is more than just the colour of the strip, that the design of the entire fixture is different, I'm just using the colours as an identifying mark). I can't say what year it changed, though. I saw an LX-e today(and 2 Chayennes, one of them Turbo :D ) and it had the black ones. It had the older dashboard and some rust.
