    Is this OEM, Aftermarket, or Custom?

    So my dad bought two more 1st Gen Celicas as parts cars (Bringing it to 1 roller/project car & 3 parts cars), and these two have a similar spoiler that we're not sure about. One is in good nick, the other appears to have cracked and is held together with electrical tape.

    The only facts we know is that the guy used to work in a junkyard, and he thinks it could be a hackjob of a Camaro spoiler. I'm open to the possibility that it could be some aftermarket piece. Can anyone lend some advice on what this could be?

    I've tried to get measurements, picture any identifying marks, some comparisons to established benchmarks (i.e. my 87 AE86 rear) and what they look like on one of the Celicas (The junky one of the two spoilers).

    Definitely not OEM. Most likely aftermarket, though I have never seen anything like it. Most likey, it was meant for another car, but the previous owner made it work with their Celica. Looks decent on the coupe, wonder what it would look like on a liftback...

    Ya doesn't look stock. Look like something cut in half and shortened to make fit.

    Okay, so more than likely it's an aftermarket/custom job. It helps in trying to figure out what to do with it.....Thanks Guys.

    And this is where the spoiler was originally. The RAT RACE badge is (at least 2) hacked up Geo Tracker badge BTW.
