How to identify an original 69 rear spoiler?

833 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  Guest
What is the difference between the repro and the original rear spoilers?
Are they both smooth?
Where are the part numbers?
Difference in weight?
Thank you for any help.

original 69 spoilers were light and would bow after a short time. I am not sure of the texture but looking at 69 Bosses, the real spoilers are bowed. 70's did not have the problem

ive got 1 of each,69 and a 70 the 69 is quite a bit lighter[plastic]and uses bolt`s to hold it to the deck lid
also prone to saging.mine has a small amount of warp to it.
the 70 is quite a bit heaver[fiber glass,like the repo`s]uses studs/nuts to mount to deck lid,
factory 70 spoiler car use a trunk prop rod and specl brackets
be careful thats it not from a cougar as thy are diff spaced between the legs
also some repo spoilers are thick like railroad ties where orig are thin
