Can anybody identify this spoiler? I think it's for the 280ZX, but not 100% sure. Any idea how rare it is or how much it's worth?

Initially I thought it was a ZX-R spoiler but those look different... hmm.

And that one should work! Notice how far out into the side wind stream the ends reach? That's the place you have to be to catch any real down-force on the tail; the original little hatch-edge spoilers of the 1970s operated in a vacuum and did nothing until they added the "ears" on either side.
