If you have a need for a real one, I have one.
If you are just after the look, buy a Carrera tail.
Email is best for contact.

The only difference between a RS America tail and a 1984-89 Carrera tail, is the hole for the rear window wiper in the Carrera tail. This hole is about 1/2 inch and barely visible when plugged. Also, the Carrera tail was painted matte black around the grill area, whereas the RS America was painted in body color.
I have seen RSA tails for silly prices, while a Carrera tail goes for $600-800, and maybe $1,000 with the complete lid, in pristine condition. For that price I might consider selling mine, I will eventually go Duck Tail on my Carrera...
