WTB 85-87 Gate & Spoiler, Columbus OH

Post by mhamilton » Fri Apr 01, 2016 5:34 pm

I am in need of an early gate for the Bi-Wing Spoiler. Preferred close to Columbus OH. Also willing to pay reasonable freight if not close.

I have a usable spoiler if someone has just the gate w/glass.

Jody Cook outside Detroit has 2 FS (on MCA FB)

and Paul Jensen south of Chicaho has one (on MCA FB)

An if those don't jive think I have 12-17 of them.

I do have something coming / going to Columbus, just don't have the timeline locked in as of yet. But it's going to happen

Have you tried Merkur Depot? It's located near Akron. The biplane spoiler hatches go for 100 bucks on the site and I think is pick up only.

I have one here from a red 86 XR that's good, with good glass, but no spoiler for $100

I have an 86-87 spoiler. I forget what under framing the Bi-plane requires. I am sure I have the lower aluminum piece. Is there another piece needed?

I will also need to source all of the screw covers. I had a few sets but sold them years ago.

The spoiler is actually still on this one, but it is badly broken. However all of the rubber seals, skeleton frame, etc is still there. . . so if you have a good bi wing this one has all of the hardware still. ( I think a couple screw covers are there still, but most are missing. )

Drive up, remove late style hatch, install early style hatch, drive home :)

Have a second one on hand now that is even nicer - but the spoiler is also broken. Same price of $100.
There's a revolving door here for hatches -- bi plane hatch parts cars suddenly end up with single wing hatches as those without a truck drive up, pull single wing hatch and install bi plane hatch and head back home. Simple, easy solution.
However, truck collection also welcome!

The one I have is brittle. The 3rd brake light bezel is trashed.
