Strange valance on '79 SC

Hi guys:

I bought this valance years ago on the assumption that all of them from this period are the same. Upon fitting this, cough, cough, after painting it, I realized it was not the same as the one it was replacing.

Anyone familiar with this?

I would add a chin lip spoiler to close this gap, but I don't think that's going to line up.

Thanks for any advice.

J>

Hey JJ...


Are you sure that by adding the rubber spoiler, it wouldn’t look right? Those holes are where the lower rubber lip typically fasten.

Perhaps that’s a 930 valence? I don’t know whether or not they’re different.

When you add the rubber spoiler, it mounts to existing valances, which extend all the way to the wheel well. Therefore this one is not meant for a typical narrow G-body...no idea what it is for, though.

Thanks, man. That's what I was thinking. I thought the metal should still be flush to the wheel arch.

I have the same problem, it's a turbo valence, I'm pretty sure you'll need the 930-503-055-01 spoiler, not 930-503-055-00. Ask me how I know. But double check.

You guys should be able to sell those Turbo-Valences pretty easily.

Obviously much harder to come by.
