Do the Fastback/Mach 1 rear deck spoilers fit a 71 Coupe? If so are the mounting dimensions the same?  If it were your car, would you add one or is it too much?

That is a nice coupe! 

Honestly, I never thought the factory rear spoiler worked well on coupes, but I do like the front spoiler on them.

If you were to do a spoiler I would suggest the one from the 1970 Cougar Eliminator.  With the coupe body lines I think that would be the correct elevation.

As the name says, would spoil it.

Nice car!! I think on the coupes they have a cleaner look without the spoiler. The lines flow better. Ryan

Thank you for your feedback! I’m out on the spoiler, wasn’t too excited about drilling holes in the trunk lid anyway.

I would leave off. I am taking one off a vert now, had to get a new deck lid he had butchered the original. When you put on coupe or vert you have to locate a L.H. trunk spring from a cougar or the trunk will not stay open with the one spring that mustang has. I sold the last two I had last month. The spoiler was not configured to fit the coupe or vert so does not look right. Your car looks great now.

No don't do it!  Car looks perfect.  Maybe if it didn't have the vinyl roof.

One of the worst additions to the hardtop body style IMO.

I agree, no spoiler.  One suggestion though is maybe get a new rear valence with twin exhaust cutouts.

Dynacorn does but I bought a car that had the parts with it. The new rear valance wit twin cut outs like a Q code had for 71 72 but not 73. It did not have the tag mount bracket. I had spot welds but no bracket the stoned worker forgot to load.
