    If you are shopping for a trunk lid you are only about 2 hours from Kingman Arizona. My uncle has a salvage yard there and specializes in antique auto parts. I just bought 2 rust free GM doors from him off of a 71. If he doesn't have it he can find it. My cousin runs it now (Danny). Dan's Auto salvage.928-753-3993. I could call for you or you can tell them Terry from Ohio said to call, . Most of the guys there know me to talk to me. And of course Danny.

    I don't remember, I bolted it to the shell but took it off when I was welding in & around the trunk. My dad is a lifelong bodyman & I remember him being impressed with the fit.

    Badazz81 you have a pm.(conversation). He says he has several. Some with spoiler holes some without. $70.00 give or take depending on condition.
