1980 Front Air dam

My 80 has a factory front air dam on is connect behind the core support not the bumper like later models. They do not reproduce these that I see.

Was this a "rare" option as I have never seen another 80 in person or on the net with one. I'm thinking maybe they were common and everybody has removed them thru the years.

I heard it gets real hot in Texas!!
The air dam has a function you might not want to lose.
It helps keep your motor from overheating.

Don't sell it or give it away. You'll likely need it in the future.

If you want to sell it, do a search. There was somebody looking for one of these in about 6 months ago on the forum.
