70 vs 71 cuda Go Wing
« on: July 07, 2009 - 11:01:08 PM »
I've read the 70 and the 71 Go wings mounts were different.   I see there are 2 different mounting locations and brackets for the 2 years.  Is this correct and does the 71 sit further forward???   :dunno: :clueless:

 I can't answer if one sits further forward than the other I have never really paid attention . But I can tell you the two spoilers do use different mounting plates ( under the decklid) . Also a 1970 spoiler decklid was spoiler cutout that are a completely different size and shape than the cutouts for a 1971 spoiler

70 and 71's each had different mounting hole shapes underneath for the wing pedestal feet to mount onto.

Scroll down and see the pics of the mounts. Thats the shape of the holes inside the trunk lid.

Thanks...appreciate the info on the mounting brackets ...Anyone know if the 71 "gull wing" sits further forward than the 70 "go wing"?
