The structure of the headlight system for the 1965 - 1966 Mustang leaves much to be desired about how much thought really went into the functional design of this car.
There are four main connections to the body (part numbers 13100 & 13A045, figure 1), these connections are denoted with an "x" in the diagram. These tend to break quite easily and are difficult to fix. Replacing this part may be necessary depending upon how damaged yours is. The price is anywhere from $50 (used, make sure there is no damage to the four connection points) to about $90 for each side. The entire headlight bucket system is around $115 - $135 for each side, this includes all you need for a complete restoration.
The main lense cover (part number 13064) was also broken at one of the four connections.
The way these attach together is with clips (part numbers 357033-S) that you use with screws (part numbers 378852-S). Since we did not want to try to find these parts I went to Home Depot and used clips with screws (10-24, course threads) and super glue to mount them on all four corners. This worked very well and avoided the cost of replacing parts that are quite expensive, unless you are doing a complete restoration.
