Hey Jagger,

Don't think you'll find that one. That body kit is long gone. It was made by Contempo Vans in Elkhart, Indiana. Not sure if they are still in business. If they are, you can always give them a ring to see if they have old inventory.

There's one for sale in Oregon if you are willing to pay for a whole car for that one part. You may have to make one (or two so they match).

And by the way, I've had two, so I know a lot about these cars. They only made 50, supposedly.

Re: Lower spoiler for 85 contempo cantara body kit

I bought the 86 Cantara in Portland. I also recently noticed that there is no front air dam. If there was one from the factory its gone now. I did pick up a standard Camaro air dam to direct air into the radiator and will get that installed soon.

I was also looking at the early 82-84 Z28 lower air dams to see if one could be made to work with the side skirts. Unfortunately I dont see any easy way to use it unless u cut that edges off near the Fender opening to clear the fiberglass flares.

Cheers

Hey, Ian. Welcome to the Contempo Cantara club. Sorry I'm just getting back to this. But I doubt you will find the lower front chin spoiler. Most cars were made as yours is. They are based off a sport coupe and are designed to flow int the body without one. It's a pointy nose, like on a Pantera.

They made 4 Cantara GTs which came with the Fiero style rear wing and the chin spoiler. That spoiler is off a Choo Choo El Camino, if I recall correctly. The tool (mold) to make them was destroyed in a fire years ago. When I bought my GT, the spoiler was mangled so I tracked the part down and called the Choo Choo folks. That was like 10 years ago. I ended up having mine rebuilt since most of it was still there.

Message me if you have any questions about Contempos, but rest assured, they came without the chin spoiler, so you aren't missing anything. And there are not many left. No more than 10, I think.

John

And by the way, if you look closely at the pictures, my spoiler is cut. If you look closely at the corners, there is a small piece that connects to the main piece. And it does NOT blend into the bumper. I will look for a picture and post.

1986 Camaro Contempo GT - notice how the chin spoiler does not "blend" into the wide-body front fender. And if you look closely, the angled piece at the corner is separate from the main chin spoiler.

Due to the lack of knowledge on these cars, I would suggest you post your questions and answers here for future reference and for others to learn from.
