It looks like you have a manual transmission. If so, Ford calls that part the "Neutral Sensing Switch".

Probably a dealer or junkyard item. AFAIK, that switch wasn't used after 94.

They are also referred to a Neutral SAFETY switch, or Neutral POSITION switch.

in case you can't find what you are looking for with FORD terminology for some reason.

FWIW, the 94 book I'm reading says:

Automatic: "Park/Neutral Position Switch"
Manual: "Neutral Sensing Switch"

I'm not questioning that, I just did a few google searches and all across the mustang boards people were told the correct terminology was the safety switch. and Actually when googlizing neutral safety switch, all I came up with were mustang parts.

I agree that your best bet is going to be a junkyard, or a tranny shop that collects old parts "just in case".

well if you can't find the part, you can always just swap in a 5.0 and a t5... those parts are easy to find and replace
