    I'm just wondering, back in about 03 I bought an authentic 00 Cobra R wing from Ford, put it on my car for maybe 2000-ish miles and it's been hanging around ever since. Is there a market for these things? I sold my car earlier in the year and I'm just kind of cleaning out parts. (It does have the Ford stamping on the bottom)

    Alright, sorry, I had life come up on me and completely forgot about this for a little bit. Anyway, like I said, I bought this wing brand new like 15+ years ago, I painted the wing itself black and the winglets a semi-gloss black (not in picture, I removed them so they don't have pressure on them in storage. The thing is basically under a thick layer of dust at the moment, but before that, it was under a different thick layer of dust. I made sure when they painted it they didn't scratch down the Ford numbers so they're still pretty clear on there, although the paint peeled up a little from only under the bottom because of it. Like I said, I REALLY don't know what to ask for this thing. On top of it all, I'm super scared to ship it, if you did want it I would probably build a small wooden box to put it in and you'd probably have to expect a $200-300 shipping bill because these suckers will get damaged so easily in shipping it's not funny. I'd REALLY rather meet somebody in person even if I have to drive a state or two out to meet them half way. The deck lid would come with it because it has those little shoes that came with it basically glued into the trunk with fiberglass resin (I didn't want to lose them because I would sometimes remove the wing and drive around wingless, so you can cut the trunk lid up to try to get them out if you want, or just have a spare trunk lid).

    Seriously though, I'm more interested in honest answers about what I should expect to get for this thing.

    If you really want to know just throw it on EBay and let the auction tell you what it’s worth. You can find aftermarket ones for well under $200 all day long. I have seen real deal ford units sell between $200 - $500. There is one on EBay right now for $1,450. Will be interesting to see if it sells.

    Good points. The guy selling a fin is also selling a splitter. He is asking big money for both and neither has sold for quite awhile.

    That guy is just an opportunist. If somebody REALLY needs one badly he'll get what he wants, but he'll be sitting on it for a long time until then, which, isn't a terrible idea if you have the storage for it.
