I have a 1967 and a 1968 standard body which I am going to begin working on in the next few months and i need to get prepared. I want to add a hood scoop that actually works (if possible), the lower front spoiler and the rear spoiler on the trunk. Can I get some recommendations? Also does anyone have these items or sell them?

I don't get really excited about the rear spoiler units I have seen on a lot of the Cougars. I was stopped next to a newer Mustang today and saw a nice trunk spoiler which was just a couple inches off the trunk. It looked nice but I am not sure if it will look right on the Cougar. Any comments would be appreciated.

I could use any recommendations about installation too!

Thanks

i'm sure some wise a__ will send an email of the special spoiler @wccc---but i've been looking at a 2001 olds alero rear spoiler---right width and curve--might pull the one off my wifes car if she'll sleep in on saturday--as for the front, we made an"export license plate filler"that really cleans up the front valance(there is a thread,somewhere)

If you want the spoiler to be the width of the back of the car its going to have to be 3 1/2 -4 inch tall or it will hit the tops of the QT panels, The hood scoop you will catch hell about from some if you are cutting a hole in a rust free hood:eek: I used 69 mustang spoiler and a boss scoop from MU. Seen some shaker scoops the work and look good

You can use a repro GTE scoop and hollow out the underside, cut a hole in the hood and seal your aircleaner to the hood with garage door weatherstrip. This makes it 'work'. And it will look amazing!

Where can I see and possibly buy the repro GTE scoop? Maybe I should just make it for looks rather than functionality.

One of these days we will get one made for those who do not intend to run front bumper guards!

1967 - 1968 Mercury Cougar Front 'Chin' Spoiler - Repro
(Click Here for More Information or to Order)

Price:$79.85

A fiberglass chin spoiler was never a factory option for the 1967 - 1968 Mercury Cougar but demand was great enough to have one made. The spoiler shown is intended for use on cars with front bumper guards. In the future we hope to have one made with no cut-outs for cars that have no bumper guards.

Shaker hood scoops.

On mine it will be replacing this:

"hint"

We have the same opinion about rear spoilers. I have a '98 mustang with a spoiler probably similar to what you saw. One of these days I'll mock one up from styrofoam in the low profile, thick mustang style, to see if that would look good on a cougar.

In my opinion, don't use a front spoiler. Based on driving with Roush plastic hanging down in the front, it's always getting caught on something. Just a matter of time before it gets damaged.
