    Finally....the install and pictures I promised.

    This is a 1969 Ford Mustang Shelby chin spoiler on the front of a Maverick. This spolier is more parellel to the ground compared to others I have seen. I basically centered it on the car, and then eye-balled it from there.

    Looks like a good fit but...I can't say I am too fond of the angle it setting at.(too close to horizontal) for my tastes.I am glad you posted this Craig...I was seriously contemplating buying 2 of em.guess I will heve to keep searching.Not crazy about the apperance of one or the fitment of another.May end up just makeing one.
    Thanks for the pic post!!!

    Craig, I think it looks pretty good.
    Let's see some video of it doing a burnout!

    It looks nice, Craig.

    I'm just surprised that you'd put something non-original on your beautiful, all-original restoration.

    Blasphemous, I tell you. Blasphemous! :cry:

    (I respect that it's your car and you can do anything you want with it. A chin spoiler does do wonders for the aesthetics for the thin-appearing front end of these cars! (y))

    Edit after seeing Craig's reply below: "I mean other than that." Haha! I'd forgotten about those minor details.

    I like it! Fits so much better than the Mas spoilers. Which supplier did you purchase from?

    :naughty::naughty:



    Car is far from original. 347 stroker, Cragars, non-original color as well as a non 1972 color, 12" sub speaker, on and on.....

    I really like the looks of the spoilers on the front of a 1971 Torino GT. Tried to mimic that look

    Tony Branda I believe. They have a swap space at Columbus every year.

    Spoiler

    I like it very much . Is it made of fiberglass or plastic?:thumbs2: Wonder if a Boss 429 would fit? I know they are shorter than the one I have on my 69 fastback and the repro are spendy.
