    Any 1994+ Mustang spare.
    Most Crown Vic 16" spares as well.
    If you are Cobra front brake swapped, you have to run either the 1994+ Cobra spare or the later CVPI 17" spare.
    If you're not living on the edge, you are using too much space.

    The mini-spare from my old '99 Town Car was aluminum, and the right bolt pattern. Nice and light.

    I've had luck on eBay finding Cobra spares.

    Newer town car is the way to go, should still fit in the well and can bolt right on the back with the 11" cobra brakes. Plenty of them out there.
