I have an old ad on my garage from Direct Connect "Turn your Pussycat into a Tiger" that advertises a cam shaft with a '69 featured in the ad.

the 69 has a front spoiler that has caught my eye. It looks like an old NASCAR variant.

Anyone know of a place where I can find a bolt on front spoiler for mine?

Thanks!

I believe some guys have modified those E-body spoilers (T/A and AAR?) to work on Chargers. Member Highbanked Hauler did it to his car (top pic below) but I don't know what he used for sure. I think others have used Camaro and Daytona spoilers. Member kcederwall08 has one too (bottom pic).

Looks like I'll just have to make one. I was hoping for a simple bolt on!

I'd contact Highbanked Hauler and/or kcederwall08 and ask them what they did before you start spending money or sawing stuff. Twocents

My triple black car had a small front spoiler when I bought the car... might put it back on one day.  Appeared to be an aftermarket piece, not home made...

Exactly what Frank (SFRT) said.....'69 Camaro spoiler. I'm picking one up this week for $25 at a muscle car shop about 25 mins from my house. I'm getting a 'seconds' they call it because it has some cracks in the paint. New paint and bamn, good as new!

Thanks. Oooooo a GM piece on my Mopar. There might have to be some sort of exorcism to cast out the demons.

Is there a particular year for the camaro? Looks like a 67-69?

Thanks!

What's cool about that Camaro spoiler is that it closely follows the pointed front end of a 2nd gen. so the look fits. Well, it probably follows the pointed front end of a Camaro too but, you get my drift...

yes the peak on the spoiler pretty much matches the peak on the hood of the charger,plus the spoiler is not too big so it actually looks 'factory'...like, if you werent a charger nerd youd never think it didnt belong.

I run a 69 camaro spoiler on my 70. I love it. Installs in 5 min with some self tapping screws. It's easily replaceable and flexable plastic so occasionally bumping curbs wont destroy it. I've already cracked mine clean in 2 by pulling the car on a trailer. I could care less though, it's a piece of plastic made for a chevy. It's easily repaired or replaced.

I say go for it!

Here's mine.

Here is the finished project....I'm pretty happy with the out come although my particular spoiler did not "bolt right up." I was a bit of fiddeling but no big deal.

I like the "go fast look" Plus it adds something to the fiberglass six pak hood. Teenagers are still stumped as to what it is. "You mean a Charger once came with TWO doors?"

This might be a clearer pic Cudanut. Here's a shot after I've already split the lip in two, but it's there. Battlescars and all.

Yes, MAS Racing had one for 68-69 various B-Bodies. And for A-s and E-s. Don't know if they had a specific Charger model.

I say had because MAS is out of business. The inventory was sold to CA Performance in Minnesota. CA Performance still has some pieces, which includes the Road Runner. It is fiberglass, not plastic, and doesn't have struts involved. $49 with +/- $20 SH.

I simply could not live on this planet if I put a Chevy part on my Mopar. coocoo So I ordered one from CA and hope to get put on next month. Hope it's not a waste of money. I'll post pics.

Their number is 651-739-2904. Lousy website but real good phone service.

             I made mine and it was a giant PITA  and I would recommend buying one if you can.
