does it have to be carbon fiber or would you be happy with steel?? you could take a steel valance weld some bracing and but out openings like in the pic and weld on metal risers like above or make them out of glass etc...a rear valence is cheap only about 29$ to experiment with

silly question, what does iirc mean? and yes the rear is the one i was/am looking for. I think the suggestion of making my own in metal is the only choice

Ah, sorry, rear diffuser. I can't say I have ever seen one and perhaps for good reason.

Both. I can't see it looking good on a vintage mustang. Perhaps you could post a pic of a similar car.

if this would be for street use, where would the license plate go?

Not sure it would fit right with a stock tank.The rear diffuser is made to wrap under the back

Ya it was this car by the ringbrothers but i dont think you can buy just the rear valance alone.
http://www.motorator.com/blog/ford/1...ne-of-the-year

I thought i saw somewhere that at one time the rear valance was available forsale but im not 100% http://www.ringbrothers.com/index.cf...TOKEN=24424976

I normally don't like what the Ring Bros. do. I think its just too "loud" but that rear end alone is not that bad and it does seem like they incorporated a diffuser doesn't it?

That side vent (top) is interesting too

This is probably the most "subtle" car that they have and its the only one i find interesting. that side vent (top) is interesting too
Ya it has alot of sweet individual parts but as a whole idk not my cup of tea. the front apron is ugly. The rear is interesting but the lip at the bottom i dont really like. Im also sure its outrageous price if you can even find it for sale.

Ya i seen that but im with you too i want something different. I think for my 67 project im gonna mess around with a stock valance and fiberglass to wrap under the whole rear. Idk why but i love center exit exhaust and i want one of my classics to have it. But that project is a little ways out.
