1970 Cougar Trunk Lip

#1

Post by FarmerDave » 10 Aug 2019, 18:20

Hello all. I am in Northern Virginia. I have been trying to find a decent used trunk lid for my 70 for over a year now. No luck. Does anyone know of a vehicle trunk lid that has similar sheet metal underneath that will work to repair this lip? It does not have to be a perfect match. I think anything close has to be better than starting from scratch. Thanks

How do you define "decent" condition? And to somewhat answer your question all 67-70 decklids will interchange as they are the exact same overall size and shape. There is a difference in the hole for the lock assembly and there are some differences in the under side bracing.

Cathouse, thanks for the reply. Decent to me is a trunk lip that may have a few pin holes and surface rust. I am aware that 67-70 will all fit. I have been searching for all three years. The ones that I came across looked like Swiss cheese.

When you say lip is it the bottom edge that wraps inward over the under side structure

I'm hoping within the next few years dynacorn decides to start reproducing the 69/70 cougar parts . Trying to find decent sheet metal is getting very scarce.

Btw farmer dave, there is a gentleman by the name of gary miller he goes by KATNIP302 he has some rust free deck lids in his stash he is willing to sell.. Send him a PM and I`m sure he will reply to you..

thanks
