Re: 1967 front spoiler Braces
I had and original 69 Z/28 in 1969. The first thing that came off was the center bracket for the spoiler. I ran up on a parking curb, repaired it with a couple of washers as the hole on the spoiler punched through. Then when I did it again (duh). I just unbolted the center bracket from the frame.
My 68 had a front spoiler on it when I bought it but no braces. It lookes as if the holes had been drilled and small bolts with a lock washer and nut installed in the holes provided on the spoiler.
Since it was a cruise night car I didn't forsee any parking curbs to bump into so I purchased a set of brackets.
I am pretty sure my dealer gets them through Classic. I was able to bolt on the side brackets with the existing hole in the fender. To my surprise there was no hole in the frame for the center bracket, so it is in my tool box. Sturdy enough without it.
I have the Canadian documents on it and no spoiler option on it. I guess they must have drilled and tapped the holes on a spoiler car in 68s, on the frame.
I have owned 3 69 Z/28s: Garnet Red 30,000 mi unrestored.
