You're in luck. There are two options for the round light upper grille. The CJ one is definitely for the 2015-17 models, and it looks like the Mach 1 grille also fits the 2015-17 style fascia. You'll have to source lights for the Mach 1, but someone is bound to make a custom kit for those cars.

I've been asking for one that will fit my 2020.
Can you point me to the member that fabbed one? I've been selecting parts to do my own, starting with a Bullitt style grille.
@celica0774 Did you investigate something further to adapt the Match 1 grill on your 2020?

I don't see a good way to adapt the Mach 1 grille. It's the wrong basic shape.
I also do not see a good way the modify the stock grille- the "fangs" on the stock grille will get in the way of the grille mounted lights.

My best thought so far is modifying this item from eBay- 302819937451. Figure a way to mount the pony to the center, and pick a pair of driving lights to suit.

I put the plan on hold. I expect that the grille companies will make a unit by the time I work out how to make my own. I have sent a couple of emails, no response.

Keep the Eleanor the Eleanor and the s550 the s550.

No reason to create this kinda garbage, just like the gt500 fakers who buy a hood/front end to look like they can afford a fast car...

Eleanor from the 2000 film is the ugliest "hero" Mustang ever created. Any move to emulate it in an S550 is truly gilding the lily.

Correcting my own post in case someone stumbles on this in the future.
The 2021 Mach 1 grille has an outline that is distinct from the standard 15-17 and the standard 18-21 outline.
So don't get excited about retrofitting your 15-17 with the Mach 1 grille.

That's it. I loved how my 2006 GT recalled the look of those.
First thing that I did when I saw the 2015 s550 pictures was to photoshop the extra headlights, and hope the Ford would figure it out. I got tired of waiting and bought the 2020.

I had the E(DONT want the copyright gods to come for me) kit from Cervini on my 06 and was obsessed. Obviously we never got a full conversion for the S550, however, in my eyes I’ve sort of made my own version with some unique twists. The side exhaust I have obviously is the most important part to copying the movie car! I didn’t want to go full copy cat but I definitely stole some inspiring elements from the movie car. My build may not be everyone’s cup of tea but I think it’s one of the most unique Guard Metallic builds around!

I for one hate when people ruin otherwise nice vintage Mustangs by giving them the Eleanor treatment.
Exactly…. So many 67/68 fast backs ruined after that movie was out… it was probably one of the most replicated “movie cars” aside from the 68 Bullitt…
