Hi all. I've been looking EVERYWHERE and have not been able to find a trunk lock for my 95 Cobra. It came without the lock cylinder when I purchased it a couple of weeks ago and I thought.. "no big deal, I'll get a new one". I haven't been able to find anyone selling one. Anyone know of where I can find one or am I going to have to resort to trolling salvage yards?

Salvage yards or aftermarket replacement. Specific locks like those for the trunk are discontinued from Ford. Might be able to find a NOS one if you can get the part number somewhere.

Gotcha. Thanks guys. Seems odd that you can buy new door and ignition locks, but trunk locks are unavailable. I guess it is, what it is.

Thanks for the heads-up I'll make sure not to break mine. They're asking a fortune for those on eBay.
Not sure if it will fit, but the discontinued OPR part on American Muscle says the same part fits 94-04.

While I can't find anything for 94-95, I found this one for 96-98 at a comparatively reasonable cost. https://www.autosparepartsmart.com/lock/trunk_lock_tl275b_ford.html

It may not fit or it may not support the factory alarm (I'm sure that could be worked around) but may be worth a shot if you can't find anything else. The 96-98 body is pretty much identical to the 94-95 so I'd be surprised if it didn't physically fit. Junkyard and a locksmith to re-key it would be the other best option I'd imagine.

Nice find! I'm going to give it a shot and see if it works. I wonder why they specify 96-98... Seems like it'd be the same.
