Default What spoiler is this?

So...I'm slowly rebuilding an 80GT. Been considering a trunk spoiler, nothing too ricey...maybe something like this one. Anyone know what it's off? Also, feel free to post pics of your trunk spoiler as I'm always up for new ideas. Let me know where you sourced it if possible...thanks!

Zender.
I might know a guy with one locally, he bought my Grp. A spoiler. Want me to see about digging out his phone number? I dunno how much it'd cost however, you'd have to talk to him about that.

It's have a round cut for the roundel though.
I think I've seen that pic. And it doesn't fit quite right

That is a Zender. It was offered as an option on the 240 back in the day.

It is a perfect fit on the pre-85 sedans.

I have one sitting in my parts bin. Trying to figure out how to attach it to my 142.

Hey c'mon now Nick...that's just wrong! Why not "loan" it to me...for, umm, a while.

Ok...I see Neptune has one on his 242. I guess I'll either wait or go another direction.

I called and got voicemail. Again though we only discussed them, so not 100% sure he had them.
I'll try calling tomorrow if I remember and if I don't get through I'll email him.
They are rare, sure, but they DO come up for sale. Maybe 2-3 a year between here and eBay and the most expensive I've seen was $300 for an NOS one. But I sold my Group A for $250 to a local so, that's sorta the going rate maybe?

Where can someone get a grp-A spoiler nowadays? Replica of course. And what's the going rate?

Well I got mine from a local old timer.
DVS in Australia still makes replicas but the shipping ain't cheap.
Comparatively speaking the zender ones are foam, so I'd hazard to guess that they'd be harder to replicate.

THe 535 one is the right length, and it has the space for the roundel...mimics the trunk lock. Works fine

OK...I keep toggling between the pic of the known to be Zender and the pic I have at the beginning of this thread. My pic has the spoiler as a 3 piece and the spoiler doesn't have near the lift as the Zender pic. Now I wonder if it is a modded Zender or an entirely different spoiler. And the hunt goes on...

Now that's it exactly. So, is that pic of the 85 in your sig? I checked the FOHA web site, looks like the spoiler is nla, at least from them. Have you had yours long? Source?

Yes, that's my '85.

The spoiler came with the car, so I can't be much help for a source.

Well, at least now I know the manufacturer...it's a start. Luckily I'm in no hurry. A while to go before the car is back on the road...
