It's amazing what you stumble on when you search the web for other things. I got sucked into this but after checking the image on 2 links I couldn't find any info to know if this is a one off front bumper cover or an aftermarket piece.

I'm guessing someone else has seen this image (I'm not that original).

<a href="http://s12.photobucket.com/user/mercury267/media/10134071_20121114211822_zps64537a72.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a220/mercury267/10134071_20121114211822_zps64537a72.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo 10134071_20121114211822_zps64537a72.jpg"/></a>

While I'm not interested in the "Cobra" lower segment so much, I've been in the process of cutting a spare 94/95 front cover and mocking up a 96/97 cougar bumper segment (where the chrome grill would normally go) to achieve a similar look on the upper portion of this cover between the headlights. However, the curves and profiles are not similar between a 94/95 Tbird nose and a 96/97 nose. Having something like this could help me out.

I cant tell for certain but this looks to be an actual Cobra bumper cover modded to fit the tbird. I have access to one so I may play around with this to see if that's the case. I keep looking at the pic and I think I only like it because its different but that's it. I also think this could very well be that the pic makes it look better than it would be in person. We'll see. This is gonna take me some time.

Is this what you have in mind?

...I think this is Earl's car.

Similar thought:
That's the look I'm going for! :) Awesome! Headlamps recessed. Clear corners. Driving lights recessed, and bolted to the bumper. Ah, but I'd rather have the smaller '95 grill...hmmm. That would sure be a heck of a lot of grafting.

Then I think I'd go with the cobra r non ram air, and diff' not the banner.
