I prefer short spoiler on 70-73.
Just don't go fast with a short spoiler. At high speeds they can produce as much as 150lbs LIFT, not downforce. That's why they used the tall spoiler in Trans Am racing.
X2^^ I have the original spoiler for my 72 Z28/M22 in the storage shed, but I always liked the short one better, and most people don't notice or care anyway.
1972 Z28 Original paint - vintage photo with STRIPES with spoiler and orange car original paint without spoiler -
FWIW with the spoiler the car has a Z28 METAL EMBLEM without the spoiler has a Z28 FOIL sticker.
I’m no expert like some other are here. But I can tell you my original 1970 1/2 Z28 and my friends who had one also, had the small spoiler and the rear stripes did not go to the bottom of the spoiler. It had radius corners and went across the spoiler. My was also a California car and had the short seat head rests. According to some of these postings the 3 piece spoiler was a COPO item. But I can tell you since I was driving when these were new, and live in so cal, I never saw a 3 piece around on a 1970 1/2 around here. Also the stripe on my car started 1” below the window trim. But somebody here said they eventually moved it up to start at the trim. Good luck with ur car, it handled way better than my buddies 69 and was one of my favorite cars.
June 70 Norwood built photo with original owner upon arrival.
Awesome photo to have
Notice the trim rings and center caps are still in the trunk, mine were.
You can see the body gaps. Pretty cool.
Original owner was stationed oversees in Germany. Ordered through RPO export procedure. The car was shipped there new and arrived with green cloth interior instead of black vinyl. That’s him examining shipping invoice trying to figure out what happened to his black interior.
Here is another on the shipping dock.
