Aftermarket Rear Spoiler Alternative For Buick Turbo Regals

Buick Grand Nationals and Regal T-type WH-1’s came with a factory rear spoiler installed.
All of the rest of the Turbo Regals did not.

If your Turbo Buick doesn’t have one, and you desire that look, there’s a couple options you can seek out.

Some Turbo Regal owners took it upon themselves to add a real OEM type spoiler onto their G-body Regals.

We’ve seen a few other Buick GN & TR owners choose the following option to install on the back sides of their Buick Regals:

A Dodge Challenger rear spoiler, an aftermarket made unit (but way cheaper than an actual Mopar produced product), and they’re very similar to the stock versions put on those type of vehicles.
Supplied as matte black in color, and can be painted the color of your choice, or left as is.

The one we are looking at today, was purchased off ebay, for less than $50 (shipped)!

[MUCH more inexpensive than an actual Buick Regal rear spoiler that can run $500+, assuming you can even find one]

.

.

Sure, it’s ABS plastic, but the new owner said it’s very decent and looks great.

Visually, it extends along the trunk width just about to the very edges on the Regal, (specs say it’s 60.47 inches long), making it just about perfect for installing onto the Buick Turbo Regals that didn’t come with one from the assembly plant, or for those who want/need to replace theirs on their GN’s.
It “almost” looks like it belongs there.

(it’s similar in appearance, somewhat, to the visual style found on the Monte Carlo SS; no wrap around/down end caps, and is lifted off the trunk on the very end tips)

The upward angle (swoop) of this rear spoiler is a bit more than than the Buick GN version, and it’s also a bit taller too.
(creating more downward force if your vehicle can utilize this type of feature, or you just really dig the look)

Of course, you won’t get the end cap pieces with this replacement style (the part of the 3-piece stock spoiler that runs down onto the quarter panels), but it does flare & angle down on the ends, and looks visually pleasing for what it is.

There’s also a gap between the top of the trunk lid and the bottom of the spoiler at the end sides, not that this is a good or bad thing, just a visual statement about it.

Mounting it:
The original Grand National spoiler has 6 (10mm) mounting bolts (just on the center section alone – each end cap has 2 bolts attaching it to the body).
The new Challenger spoiler has 3 bolts that secure it to the trunk (one in the middle, and the other 2 near each end).

So if you have an OEM Buick Regal trunk lid (that doesn’t have existing holes), you’ll have to drill some new holes to mount this new rear spoiler.
Same goes for a GN trunk lid, since the new bolts probably won’t line up with the factory holes.

You can probably install this alternative rear spoiler onto your Turbo Regal in less than an hour.

(but you should acquire new studs and nuts for it, as they give you bolts when you buy this, and that makes it hard to figure out where exactly you need to drill your new holes. With the studs, you can insert them into the spoiler, and basically set it on top of your trunk lid & mark where you need the holes to be)

Relatively easy install, inexpensive, and looks great, making this a decent looking alternative for any Gbody Regal that needs a rear spoiler!

[thanks to Jermain GT Hernandez for the photos, that’s his beautiful white T-type shown, to which he has done a few other trick mods to it!]

[search on ebay to find: “2008-2023 Dodge Challenger Rear Trunk ABS Spoiler Matte Black SRT Style” – that’s the one he purchased]

.

The below shows you the other one we’ve seen in the past, of course, it’s an actual (Mopar made) Dodge Hellcat spoiler (notice the camera hole in the center).

[and this pic gives you a real good indication of exactly how these look when installed on a black Buick Grand National]

.

.

Whether you love them or not, for those searching for an alternative solution to a rear spoiler or rear wing for their Buick Grand National, Regal Turbo T, T-type or Buick Regal Limited, these do provide a viable option.

[and should you not prefer this style, another alternative to finding/purchasing an OEM type of rear spoiler, you should check into the options supplied by Spoolfool]
