Looking for a rear spoiler for my Fairlane.. I was told Dearborn Classics had one, but I don't see one.

Anyone make a repop of this? They had the front spoiler...

Any help would be appreciated since Google hasn't worked at all for me.

Are you sure it wasn't..

November 17 2006, 4:26 PM 

The front spoiler?

http://www.dearbornclassics.com/cgi-bin/more_info.cgi?part_number=FSP100&type=B&year=70&category=BODY

It's on sale for $67.98 and is normally $99..

$100 seems sorta cheap for a rear spoiler.

The search continues..

Hey guy,

Your right about that and I looked at it a couple of times. DOH! I know there is a racing shop on University called MAS performance racing parts and their webpage actually had what you were looking for. Their page is down but I'll run over on Mon. and see if they still carry it. If they do I'll get all the inf. for you and maybe even pick one up for myself.

Correct Rear Spoilers aren't available for a Torino/Fairlane

November 18 2006, 8:39 AM 

But the Cyclone rear ones are a direct correct looking bolt on. As of right now, no one repops the Cyclone rear wings

Good news and bad news

November 20 2006, 3:40 PM 

Hi,

I ran over to MAS today and checked on the rear wing spoiler. They said they never had a webpage so I don't know how I saw one so it must have been a dream. LOL They have them in stock and it looked so nice I bought one myself. He mentioned he knew of another place that sold them for $400.00 but I didn't even want to know who they were. Here is the inf. I got out of their catalog. On page R-5:

FoMoCo Geniune Ford Spoilers $219.00

230-107-6874 Black D022 (fastbacks)
Spoiler w/long brackets.
230-107-6875 Grey D122 (notchbacks)
Spoiler w/short brackets.


This is from a 1984 catalog that he gave me. He only charged me about $140.00 with tax. I mentioned you were looking for the rear wing and he said that they ship all over the world if you were serious. Here is the store inf.

MAS Racing Products
2288 University Ave.
St. Paul, MN. 55114-1801
651-644-6811

When he looked up that I had the '70 Torino he said it was the correct one for my car. Good luck with this. Maybe they will send you an old catalog like mine so you can see the little picture of it.

I will give them a call and order one up.. I would imagine the same one as yours would work on my formal roof. The slope seems about the same.

Hope it works for you..

November 20 2006, 7:15 PM 

if not I'm sure you can sell it on ebay. They had one right on the shelf and I took it out to my car and it looked like it would fit great. when I got home I hid it in the garage so I wouldn't have to explain why I'm spending money on my car before xmas. LOL

I will not be getting mine on until maybe next summer. I just don't have the money to get it done right. I don't even want to have nighmares of ME bringing a drill next to the exterior of my car. LOL

Pics of the Cyclone rear Spoiler on a Torino Convertible

November 22 2006, 6:11 PM 

here are some pics of the Cyclone rear Spoiler on my Torino GT Convertible. The Cyclone/Montego rear trunk lid was the same has on Torino Convertilbes, 4 Dr and 2dr formal roof models.

The Spoiler was on the car when I bought it in 1988 and I decided to leave it on. It has the prop rod and correct under trunk mounting brackets and It's painted body color like the 70 Cyclone ones were, I have thought about painting it black

Jerome, Steven, Walt....

November 22 2006, 6:41 PM 

I'm trying to figure out...is the spoiler that Jerome and Steven bought identical to the one Walt has? I know the Mustang ones are shorter so wondering what they have exactly....

Not the same

November 22 2006, 6:53 PM 

I really wish it was. Walts looks original. The one I got has just a small oval for both sides to attach to the underside that there is no bar. Mine also has adjustible brackets/screws on the pedistal so you can tilt the wing for better performance but the top design of the wing looks the same. When I picked it up it felt almost like it was padded. I'll have to take a look at mine again. I plan on leaving mine black so it will go with the front valance spoiler I want to pick up.

I've always thought that some were black

November 22 2006, 8:36 PM 

I could swear that the one I remember seeing in Milford, NE back in 1970 was a yellow GT, with black front and rear spoiler. Great that rear spoilers are still available.

Walt, HawkRod and myself have hashed this out a couple of times...........................

November 24 2006, 8:13 AM 

Here are pictures of the spoiler on my 70 torino GT. It is off a cyclone spoiler with all the correct brackets. It would be in your best interest to make some kind of mounting bracket on the underside of deck lid. Also DONT FORGET THAT BETWEEN THE UNDER DECK LID BRACKET AND PEDESTAL THERE ARE SMALL ROUND SPACERS THAT GO AROUND EACH MOUNDTING ROD! IF YOU DONT HAVE THEM IT WILL PULL THE DECK LID DOWN AND PUT ROUND DENTS AROUND EACH PEDESTAL !

[IMG][/IMG]

[IMG][/IMG]

The 70 Mustang, cougar and cyclone rear spoilers are "(.........ALL.........)" the same!
[IMG][/IMG]

1969 cougar 1969 cyclone will not work! But 69 mustang will work. I dont know why they are repoping the new spoilers in plastic and they bow up. For my 2 cents they look like shit! You would think someone would do a concours repop? I dont know why they are pushing the crap!

I do know a guy who has an NOS in the box 70 rear spoiler but he is VERY PROUD OF IT ! If anyone is interested in it LMK and I will get you some pictures. I have an NOS rear spoiler for my blue 71 torino.

More spoiler info

November 24 2006, 11:39 AM

Ok the picture above is of an orginal spoiler gasket off a 70 cyclone spoiler. The other is an NOS gasket from a 71-73 Mustang rear spoiler. You guys will notice that the the cyclone holes are further apart. REMEMBER 71-73 MUSTANG REAR WINGS ARE THE ONES THAT ARE DIFFERENT AND WILL NOT MOUNT IN THE SAME LOCATION ! the 1970 cars ( Cyclone, Cougar ,Mustang all used the same rear wing ) This is confusing I know. here will try to make it simple.

1969 Cougar ,cyclone (same)

1969 1970 Mustang , 70 Cyclone, 1970 Cougar ( same )

1971-73 mustang

These are what it all breaks down to.

Also the picture with the pedestal and the mounting plate the pin is pointing to where the spacer goes. It is round and slides over the threaded stock

Rear spoilers

November 26 2006, 4:15 PM 

Important to note that the '69 Cyclone decklid unit is unique unto itself in that the wing is stationary i.e. it does not adjust. Been a long time since I compared to factory '69 Eliminator piece so I 've forgotten the spacing and pedastal differences.Finding a '69 Cyclone rear piece would be difficult at best.
