    1972 Z28's came standard without a rear spoiler. A rear spoiler was an option for that year. Nothing is on the trim tag indicating a spoiler or no spoiler on a 1972 trim tag.

    Don’t know if this will help anybody on the spoiler and stripe topic. I owed a 1970 1/2 Z28 when it was almost new and had it for over 25 years. If I remember the 3 piece spoiler was not used until 1973 and the rear stripes on mine were started one inch below the window trim and had radius corners on the one piece rear spoiler as they did not die at the bottom of the spoiler. I’ll see if I can find a picture.

    Thanks for everyone's input. I've done enough research of my car to feel it was built sans spoiler and the 1 piece spoiler was painted and installed prior to delivery to the new owner. I had contemplated fixing the black on the deck lid and fixing the stripes on the rear of the spoiler to match what is considered correct but have decided to leave it as is, as it is how it was delivered to the original owner as best as I can determine. As background I worked several years for GM at their GMAD plant in North Tarrytown NY for the introduction of the infamous X cars. I can tell you of many instances where cars weren't built exactly to the codes on the sequence sheet due to parts shortages, running changes or just mistakes in paperwork or assembly. Point is the build sheet if available isn't always gospel, at least in my opinion.

    You guys are good. Couldn’t remember if it 72 or 3 that the tall spoiler came out. I don’t think there were too many COPO spoilers out there in 70 and 71.

    Actually the rear tall spoiler was available as an option in 1971.

    The tall COPO spoiler was only a COPO option in 70. In the beginning of 71 both spoilers was available by the end of 71 the short spoiler was no longer

    In my old school opinion, if you have a 70-71 you should have a one piece spoiler as they look way cooler. Not so in your face. I always thought the 3 piece made it look more like a TA.
