It would seem this guy is parting out his whole car. I have some of this stuff, didn't know it was worth anything. Maybe I should go through the garage! I wish I could trade someone a original scoop and clock and maybe some cash for a original wing! Anyway here is a link check out his other items for sell. Rear Louvers

I wouldn't want an original rear wing. Most of them had that famous sag.

They only sag because they had suck long reach all the way across that big ol' car.
I wouldn't want one with a sag either.Looks bad I see alot of cougars with the sags too.

NPD has them for about $135 but they are on backorder. I bought a new one on ebay from a guy that sells them from his house:

My original rear spoiler was cracked clean in half in one of my more unsuccesful forays into 'teenage stunt-driving'. When I repaired it, I put two steel rods in it length-wise, and then filled it with that spray-in foam stuff that is used for home insulation.(I think its called 'Tuff-Stuff).
After it was finished, there is no outside evidence of the modification, except that the spoiler is a little heavier. The stock trunk springs can still hold the lid open though..No sag in over 15 years in the sun!

I know this may be in bad taste but the wings from Mustang unlimited have the rod's all ready in them and hve a nice fit and finish. A good friend has one on his 69 Mach and it looks as good if not better than my oem wing.

In my experiances, the only rear wing that had the sagging problems was the 69 version, which was hollow, & much lighter than the 70 versions.The 69 version was smooth, while the 70 had a "camera case" texture, also the 69 appeared to be a bit thicker in cross section as well. neither of my 70 wings showed any sign of sag.

My 70 Boss 302 has the original rear wing that is as straight as new, of course, she's parked in a nice garage and never left outdoors. In my next life, I want to come back as a collectable car! What a life. Bill

I believe all repros are made by the same manufacturer, that's what I've been told by a good source.

I didn't know that. But I've seen a lot of saggy spoilers in both '69s and '70s or so I've thought, I'll have to look closer.

Agreed, The 69's were the ones with the sagging rear wing problems. A Ford 70 wing from either a Mustang or Cougar will Not have a sag problem. This information was in print some time ago in one of the publications. If a 70 has a sagged wing it has a late 69 part on it. Bill, Las Vegas Nevada
