  • 50 2 dr and 4 dr trunk lids

    Are the 50 2 dr and 4 dr trunk lids interchangeble? I just gave away my 4 dr, and I'm thinking the trunk lid is better than the one on my starlight.

    That's OK because the one on your 4-door wouldn't FIT your Starlight! Starlights and Business coupes share one lid, all sedans and convertibles share another.

        I just stumbled across this picture on ebay. See the trunk lid sitting on this starlight. While I can't say exactly what year it's from, it sure does illustrate well the difference between the lids.

          Both body and lid look like '50 to me.

            Maybe the lid came off the sedan sitting next to the Starlight?

              oo, good eye Matt! Wonder if there is a complete jack in there somewhere?

                Probably no doubt the lid came from the car behind. The guy is on ebay right now, selling the rear fender. (could email him about the jack...?)
                I just couldn't help but notice how this picture perfectly answers a pretty common question - swapping trunk lids between these models.
