              Sorry, but I have to say leave the wing off. The chin would be ok though.

                I have the gull wing on my 73,it looks great,and the side profile follows the top of the rear quarters! 20200718_132716.jpg 20200613_171914.jpg

                  I don't think your car really needs either. I like them on mine because they are black and it offsets the Hemi orange.

                    I thought about it too. Never got around to it. The way my suspension is setup, I think a rear wing would add some stability going around curves at 130+ MPH.

                      I was going to do the same. Mocked it up with the gull wing, but to my eye, lines were not right, as the quarter panel tips up at the end on a 73, obviously. For a rear spoiler, I was thinking more of a lip type spoiler like a T/A or AAR. Cleaner. IMO.

                          My personal opinion only. I like chin spoilers, and deck spoilers. Never cared for the wings. (

                            Yeah, add me to liking chin and deck spoilers, not so keen on the wing but I do think that the wing looks better on ‘71 and later and not so good on ‘70 and newer. But it’s your car.

                            The one on that car is an original factory Mopar wing,it came from a 71 Cuda. First Place Productions made the best reproduction wings,but I think Classic Industries bought them out.
