That looks like a GTII bottom. It has the oval indent on the right side for the badge... But it is set further back than others I have seen.

The curvature doesn't match up with my OEM gt2 wing.
If I mounted mine further back it wouldn't have the small lip that notches in on the rear edge of the trunk.

Chris, that's a very interesting pic.

I will tell you that I am not aware of any GT spoiler shaped like that with or without a third brake light. For the record, this is based upon my knowledge which means there may be something out there that I'm not aware of. I mean hell, what do I really know???

If I were to venture a guess I'd say he had the original modified or made a whole new base. He being the owner.

Here's a pic of the actual GT wing:



If you were thinking of rare wings then there would be two. The GTR



And the STC:



Neither the GTR or STC wing were ever put on production cars. In fact, the GTR wing was never officially available to the public. Only the GT/LTW wing was as Group A or N.

I agree Jim. That LTW wing looks user modified.

Keep in mind the third brake light addition is kind of a hackjob. I can see someone fussing over it and a body shop coming up with what is shown.

Classic EAG.
"Unmolested" LTW going for 100k. I have to say I actually prefer the PTG cut just due to the "don't give a ****" race car feel of it.

I prefer the PTG cut wing for the same exact reason.

Did you give them a ring and ask? Maybe the previous owner knows.

Thought I'd update this with something interesting.

How many of these could be out there?! Just one? If PTG made it there could most certainly be more.
