    I'm looking in the Buick Performance& Restoration Tips book and this is what it says"trunk lids for 1970-72 Skylark/GS,1968-72 Chevelles and 1970-72 Monte Carlos are the same trunk lid" hope this is true and helps you out

    Doo Wop Where were you in '62?

    Always thought the Grand Prix of the same vintage used a trunk lid that would interchange...can anyone verify?

    Actually, the convertible and hardtop trunk lid are the same. I have a 72 ragtop and a 72 hardtop right next to each other at the shop and all demensions appear to be identical.
    Of couse the quarter panels are way different between the 2 cars. Jim Burek

    Even though all 68-72 chevelle, 70-72 monte carlo, and 70-72 Skylark trunk lids will interchange, there were actually 2 different styles. Some of the early 68-69 trunk lids were different on the inside, other then that they are identical.

    Digging up a 16 year old thread might be the record. Lol

    Since it was brought back up, I’m looking for a fiberglass deck lid for my GS

    VFN makes pretty nice ones. Not sure if Glastek does or not.
