What trunk lid will fit on my 1970 cougar?

There were only 619 XR7-Gs built. They were built along side the Shelby Mustang, and were available with every engine and transmission offered in 1968, (except the 427). This was the first Cougar to be a part of the Hertz Rent a Racer program. If you have any information about these rare cats, this is the place to share. The XR7-G registry is maintained by Royce Peterson.

Hi guys, I am a novice so I am still trying to learn as much as I can. I have a 1970 Mercury cougar that I want to replace the trunk lid. I’m just curious what parts are interchangeable? What can I use a mustang trunk lid ?

Thanks
