I ran across a couple of lower airdams recently. Now I know 69's have them. One of them was a little narrower, I presume it is for a 68 or 67. Do you guys know if 67 and 68 had them on the cars? it looks almost exactly the same as the 69 dam.

I need help, if anyone see's I'm going down the wrong road--Straighten me out!
Yes, supposedly only 4 speed cars and cars with A/C, but I have two 350 A/T cars without air that had them. So not always a rhyme or reason. And yes, the 7's and 8's are narrower than the '69's.
I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not sure. I feel like I am diagonally parked in a parallel universe. 1968 400 convertible (Scarlet) 1976 T/A - 455 SE (No Burt) 1968 400 coupe - R/A clone (Blue Pearl) (for sale) 1968 350 - 4 speed 'vert - 400 clone (the Beast!) 1968 350 convertible - Wife's car now- 400 clone (Aleutian Blue) (Blue Angel) 2008 Durango - DD 2008 GXP - New one from NH is AWESOME! 2017 Durango Citadel - Modern is nice!

The lower air dams are part of the extra cooling package that included the upper "block off plates" that help channel air through the grill and straight into the radiator area. All 1st Gen 400 and A/C cars had them along with drivetrain/option combos the engineers felt would run hot,especially if ordered for a warm climate area.

I bought a HO350 69 w/3 spd non air w/3.55 rear in 1976 that came with the air dam but without the upper block off plates. Note: It also came with the 3/8” fuel line from the sending unit and the1/4” vapor return line.
