I would say yes, if it's a repro it's been detailed very well, but seeing how it has the slightly "beaded/rolled" bottom edge, I'd say it's most likely original, whatever tool the original OEM vendor used to trim/shear off the bottom ends usually resulted in the bottom edge having a somewhat "beaded" edge, or shadow crease/slight roll over from the cutting process ...something you won't see in the repros.

Also the A pillar screw retainer area looks original in it's detail, something lacking in the repros, most often the repros don't even have no holes for Bird installation, and the current vendors and end users haven't the time/effort/tooling/knowledge/etc to bother with this detail...

Thanks Dayclona, Great info.

Another question - what material is the rear spoiler made of and what are the vertical supports made of?

Aluminum all 3 pcs, the aluminum sides/uprights are sand cast, and the center blade is a continuous cast extrusion of aluminum
