    I don't see why they wouldn't, except for one thing~ the only two door sedans you could get in '58 were either Champions or Scotsmen!!! If you have a 2 door President, it's not a '58, or it's also a hardtop!!! Have you got pictures of the cars involved? That would help...
    Here's a link to some pics that can help id the cars:

        Seems like there was one lid stamped for all models, but various part numbers available, due to the different holes in them for ornaments and emblems. Some of the holes are fairly large, which makes them a problem. But, it is better than having the rust-out at the lower edge to deal with, if you find a good solid one.

          Sorry, missed the 'decklid' part of your question... [V] [B)]
          I'll go along with what 'Challenger' said~ all sedan decklids from '56-'58 ought to work...
          Most body parts would be the same as well~ to a point. Having a parts book can help you to a certain extent, if you don't already have one.
          I'd still be interested in seeing pics of the 'Champion' that you would be getting the parts from, BTW...
