If we could find a truly original and un-used piece we could
look into doing it ourselves. We have just not found a good original sample to-date. 1965-72 Ford Text dated May 1975 lists it as “improvise from
C8LY-8B391-A”. The original part number is C7ZZ-13044-A. It was never
officially replaced but at some point it got the D0MZ-16D130-A number, used on
1970 Mustang extensions applied to it along with the Improvise from
C8LY-8B391-A note. I think the D0MZ part was what Ford started placing
the 16018/9 extension assemblies. I have a vague memory of seeing them in
a Ford blue pouch in the assembly boxes. My guess is everyone repro’d the
D0MZ 70 part and have used it for 67-70 never paying attention to the
difference in thickness, if in fact the C7ZZ part was .130” versus .080” on the
D0MZ part. We need an original to verify, and in the meantime, the hobby has been utilizing this existing reproduction by the tens of thousands. So unless we decide to do it ourselves, there's a fair chance that existing manufacturers may not be motivated to re-tool.
