It looks as if the spoiler for a 76 Camaro can also be found on Camaros from 1974-1981.
I checked 2 parts dealers and they both have new (reproduction) 3 piece spoilers for sale for 74-81 Camaros.
If you don't know about these guys yet you may want to get them out.

I would suggest to you to check prices and research your parts before you purchase them, all parts are not created equal.

Forget what I said above, I misunderstood what you were looking for, I was under the impression you wanted the rear spoiler. Sorry

yeah this front spoiler is really getting me! I've looked at loads of spoilers, but can't find one that is exactly like the one from the movie...

would it be an idea to contact whoever made the movie and find out if they can tell me where they got it from... or better if they have any spares haha

Or does anyone else have any ideas on which one it is?

thanks for all the help and advice!

I wish you luck, but I don't think you're going to find that exact spoiler. It looks like a custom deal. The 76 T/As look closer to the end pieces used on Bumblebee:



The 77 Z28s were the only big bumper car to get a chin spoiler, and it doesn't look anything like the spoiler on Bumblebee.

The chin looks to be that of a late model Z28, thats why you have the wheel flare there. and the rear spoiler looks to be from a 70-73 camaro. i think there were two heights avaiable. i belive most of the parts from 70-81 are somewhat interchanable, but things like the back window, grill, and tail lights are not. keep in mind that the movie guys could have made the parts for the cars, as it is not uncommon for them to do that.

If you do a google search you can find a few 1976 Camaro with this spoiler/fender flare/ ground effect.




I just did a little more research and found this...
http://www.yearone.com Then search for PJ13 -1974-1977 models 3-piece front spoiler. Reproduction. $278.00

Maybe you need to contact Year One and request a picture. Maybe try their tech support, I would hope that they could tell you if this is the exact item you are looking for. I hope that it helps.

To clarify, the subframes from the 70-73 and the subframes from the 74-81 are different. The rear windows are the same from 70-74. In 75 they changed to a rounder rear window. Tail Lights from 70-73 were dual round tail lights. For 74-77 they were kinda wedge shaped on the outter edges, and on the 78-81 they were almost like the third gen tail lights. Z28s were only produced from 70-74 and 77-81. Almost all body parts are interchangeable. Alot of people like to take 74s (because they're cheap) and put 70-73 replacement body panels on them (especially the RS style). The interiors are pretty much interchangeable. The dashes were the same design from 70-78 and switched to a squarer, flatter style from 79-81. The Center consoles were different from 70-74 and the same for 78-81s. I believe it was 77 or 78 when they introduced a pseudo circuit board thing that controlled current to lights, gauges, etc. In 80 they actually had something of a computer on board.
