I've been looking hi and low for good pics of air dams for narrow body cars, but haven't found much. Could some of you guys with air dams post some pics. In particular, I want to see a Revson style air dam. Thanks.
Original Post
Narrow body spoilers:

All the vendors sell a copy of the GTS spoiler, they're available in fiberglass, plastic (Pantera Performance Center) and steel (PI Motorsports).

Hall has a GT5 spoiler in fiberglass, Pantera Parts Connection has a GT5 spoiler in plastic.

Amerisport has a "mini-spoiler" in fiberglass. That's what's on the front of 6018.

Pantera Performance Center has a flat air dam, you'll find one mounted on Larry Finch's Pantera.

The Revson spoiler is no longer available.

Gran Turismo also sold an elaborate urethane spoiler for the "L" models, it can be seen in the picture below. Although designed for the Panteras with the L bumper, as seen in this example it can be used with Pre-L Panteras too. Its no longer available.

I want to see a Revson style air dam


Was in Larry Stock's shop lunchtime today working on the GT40. He has just purchased a truck load of moulds, (full Pantera and Mangusta bodies!) which also includes the smaller stuff like side scoops, wings etc. and one mould for the Revson air dam. He's working on shipping it al up to Reno from SoCal and currently trying to document exactly what he has there.

Larry's also pulling together a new catalog, which from the draft I saw would be one of the most comprehensive catalog's to date by any vendor I've seen.
George,
A few years ago when I was at Texas Motor Speedway with The Texas Pantera guys I cornered Gary Hall & asked if he could identify the spoiler on #5042 which is the one you picture above. He said it was conceived & marketed by a Ford executive named Ray(? can't remember his last name). Would this be the guy that had Gran Turismo? BTW, my spoiler is riveted on the sides of the front fenders & attached with screws on the underside & is made out of fiberglass. FWIW.
Thanks for the replies. I am planning to respray the purple car as soon as I get a few bugs worked out and I would like to add an air dam as well. I want something simple and functional that does not become the focal point of the car. Thanks.

Gran Turismo was a company founded by a group of Pantera project insiders with the blessings of Ford in order to develop a line of aftermarket accessories for the Pantera. Yes Ray Geddes was one of the founders, but not the only one. The company folded after a few years, Hall & Mind Train bought up their remaining stock. Besides the spoiler, two other commonly seen accessories sold by Gran Turismo was the "nerf bar" that mounts between the two chrome mini-bumpers on the '71 - '72 Panteras and the luggage rack that mounts on the rear deck lid.

Thanks for correcting me about the spoiler being made of fiberglass. I've seen a couple of them with a bad warp along the lower edge which made me believe they were urethane, I didn't think fiberglass would warp like that. Never thought to ask anybody. Doh!

FWIW, we've been running a Revson front spoiler on our '72 L since the '80s. I chose this one because the curvy styling seemed to complement the Pantera body, and because Peter Revson said it worked, which I've found to be true. Steering is still good at speeds that should lift the nose and make thing 'floaty' and ground clearance was not reduced. Although in the 20-or so years since mounting it and removing the spring spacers, I have managed to touch down both front lower corners (hard braking in sharp turns while autocrossing) and it definitely is fiberglas!
This is the ABS plastic version Pantera Performance (Castle Rock, CO) sells. Basically a flat, molded to fit the lower valance panel. It is also available in splinterable/crackable fiberglass. Roll Eyes They refer to it as a 'no holes GTS spoiler'. About $100. A few sheet metal screws on the hidden bottom lip and you're done.

I THINK I got it from Pantera East 15 years ago?
