Front tag mount

I’m looking for a factory style front tag mount for an 83-86 Tbird. Would like it to be in very good condition. Or if anyone has info of an aftermarket one that looks factory let me know
Thank you

Those are the flat style ones, right?  I think I have one. I'll try and find it this weekend.

I know the 87-88 had two syles, and I know I've got a couple of each of them.

Yes it’s the flat style. Four mounting holes I believe.

Just FYI...factory ones for our cars are metal. If you want to use a plastic one, a plate holder from a Tempo/Topaz can be modified to fit (trim off the bottom tabs on the back). The mounting holes can differ, I've found, but no big deal. I'm running a Tempo one on the convertible, it's a nice subtle upgrade IMO.

Thanks Eric
 Oddly enough I checked EBay for a Tempo front tag mount thinking it was a long shot. There were a couple on there NOS.  I was surprised. I ordered 1 for 14$/shipped and will try it but may get the metal 1 if the other member locates it also .
