 Very nice cast aluminum, then heat treated Superbird wing . It all started with a oem Superbird wing that was then used for CAD inputs .  Hollow uprights cast by a foundry with 50 years exp in one piece with insert in mold as orig , nothing welded . Shipped in raw alum , you must prep for paint this way you see how nice the casting is and everyone has they're own method of prep . 2000.00 Each wing section is shipped with CNC  machine matched surfaces . Includes all studs/ hardware .Bare assessable wing we machine the little nubs off they are cast in to line up the template for machining then milled off. Jim and I have been doing business together and as I, he was disgusted and disappointed with the stuff from texas . As with my parts and his wing we didn't do this to become  wealthy, rather use our talents to make the best part possible for ourselves and maybe help others along the way . This has not been  a simple or inexpensive undertaking , Jim has 40+ years in building mopars and over 24k invested in patterns & molds . This wing should sell for 2500 in my opinion   This Superbird wing was test fit on an orig superbird and the wing is an exact replacement .

If using on a show car for points, make sure to add waves and pits in the wing, to make it look like a production piece!

Superior craftsmanship!

Out of interest why would it be any more expensive for casting etc etc on a Daytona than a 'bird ?

Its is extremely costly for both as well as time consuming , that said 2500 is worth the cost of wing in my opinion. Jim said he  test fit his superbird wing a true orig superbird and it was perfect fit  
It all starts with an orig wing , not a replica . The orig wing is then used in CAD design for input points  to insure its exact replica as orig .

Well, if its not a Mopar sanctioned repro part, then best to make it slightly differently methinks.

I have some Moparmates who have been sued for making Moparts, (unlicensed)... slap

Dare we even say 'RAMCHARGER' anymore... scratchchin scratchchin scratchchin

How does the 'FIVE YEAR RULE' apply here? shruggy

If the wing was being manufactured with a Pentastar, PN#s, etc, etc, or advertised using Mopar trademarks, endorsements, etc, etc without licensing/consent/permission then there's going to be problems, otherwise one is free to do as they please in this type of endeavor...DAMHIK

But be assured the Chrysler/Mopar legal/licensing dept will come calling offering all kinds of benefits (benefits that only benefit themselves re:$$$$$$$) associated with licensing, it's just a money grab for them, bragging rights for the part(s) mfg, higher prices for the buyer, zero assurance from Mopar

Larry,

Beautiful looking piece, is this wing by any chance the same as Rick Fairless is selling?, as he often re-markets other mfg's repros...


Has casting shrinkage been taken into account?, is the base able to accept a stock/factory/NOS base gasket? as "other" aluminum wings on the market over the decades all suffered from being dimensionaly smaller in proportions because the sand castings were based/taken on/off actual sized original/repro wings regarding the uprights, some of the early cast Daytona wings suffered from casting shrinkage... the original center sections were continuous cast extrusions cut to length, an entirely different process...


inquiring minds would like to know?

Thanks,
Mike


Larry, I sent you a PM

I personally think a LOWER height wing would be better and re-jig the trunk hinge and swivel points.

Or in true racer style, a plastic trunk lid with 4 corner pins!

Just talking Daytona here and the Birdies are full trunk affairs.. scratchchin

Needs to be lower.   Twocents

If you can change the oil, without jacking it up, it's not low enough.
