Need help… about to start a restoration on a BB that is in amazing shape to start with, but of course the spoiler is missing and someone tried to turn the car all black (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

I know that this part is perhaps the rarest but happy to buy or trade… we have some incredibly rare parts as well (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Do you want me to buy your front spoiler? I will. My BB is just starting it's restoration. It's front spoiler (non-original) is in 14 pieces. How much? I can PayPal or Venmo!

Nobody gets an LE spoiler until 914 Rubber @Mikey914 get to use one to make an accurate replica for all us posers!

I’m good with that, but somebody needs to share so that we can spend 2x more on the restoration than the car is worth (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Yes, the same spoiler from 1974 through 1976 AFAIK. And should fit all years, so a good size market.

I am told that the orignal LE spoiler was not laid up fiberglass, it was pressure molded with heat from Molding Dough Compound. A 2 sided mold that can be heated, and a large press would be needed to do this correctly.

Not sure how a repro could be made...maybe injection molded?

@JeffBowlsby ,

Curious. What's the latest count on registered LEs? Your site says 291, which is a little out of date. What's the rate of discovery?

I have a few more to add, but the 291 is not far off. Calculating a rate would be difficult. Sometime 0 cars show up in a year, other years about 5 are located.

They look like $$$$$

Also they will have the part number on them 914.503.235.10

On the off chance you do happen to have one, I am also looking to pick one up for my number matching bumblebee

More info on the difference between the originals and the repros:

The ends of the spoiler also show the injection bumps as shown in the pic below.
Hard to find and be ready to pay big $$$ for one.
