Would that rear boot spoiler fit a 216 Cabriolet?

Unless its the coupe spoiler I would say no , most 3/5 door spoilers have base with cutout for rear wiper arm .

Ok got the wreck out of the field, don't think to much useable from interior but suspension etc looks ok. Hoping to have it gone for scrap Monday so if anyone wants anything let me know and I'll check condition etc. Just to note it's a 214 SLI with a SPI engine not the 216 I originally thought it was :slapme

Hi John. What are the bumpers and rubbing strips like? Are there any cuts or grazes? I might be interested in the rear screen and quarter lights if undamaged as well.
