Rear spoiler brackets.


Recommended Posts

Can anyone recommend a vendor who sells the rear spoiler brackets? My drivers side one broke on me yesterday, so I have had to remove the spoiler for the time being…but I also have holes in my trunk lid that look crappy now. Can I buy just the brackets? I saw on another thread that these were made of cast metal, but mine look like they are plastic?

Looks like you might be able to epoxy it back together and provide at least a temporary fix until you find a replacement.

Since I had received a PM recently about the Ford spoiler pedestals,  I would like to add this additional info if other forum members had any questions about the OE style rear spoiler.
The pedestals were never released separately as a service part, so there was never a part number assigned to them by Ford. (The same thing on the '69 and 70 spoilers) Telling someone they had to purchase a spoiler to get a replacement pedestal was not always a pleasant experience. If your pedestal is a genuine Ford piece, it should have a D1ZB-6344226-AWA engineering number cast on the underside. Ford discontinued the spoiler kit in 1981, so NOS parts are scarce.
As Hemikiller posted, repo pedestals are available for the '71-73's that I believe are die-cast metal. It's hard to believe that there is yet another repo part available for the '71-73s.

No Officer...I really don't know how fast I was going, my speedometer stopped at 140!

I thought of that too, but I would be nervous about it flying off the car on the highway. :classic_unsure: Then I would have to buy an entire wing kit!

Thanks for the link. Has anyone purchased these from NPD? The picture on the website doesn't work for me and I would like to make sure it looks the same as what I have on my car. I'm assuming my wing kit is OE from Ford, but you never know, it could have been messed with by a PO. I didn't see a part number on them.

The originals are not plastic. I have a set from NPD and they are a very close replacement for originals, and they are metal. The set I have match up to the original spoiler. Good luck!!
