Q: Trunk Floor Replacements
I am looking into purchasing the trunk floor for my 1967. I noticed differences in prices from $69 to about $105, from different companies. If anyone has ordered one that they would recommend please let me know.
A: The trunk floors vary in size. The larger ones will go all the way up the hump between the shock towers. These cost a little more but it eliminated the weld in the reinforcing ribs on the incline (which makes it harder to smooth and hide). There are also several pieces that you may or may not need. Originally, the trunks were installed in the factory as one piece. This is not practical for a rebuild because the pieces need to be small enough to fit into the trunk opening. This is why a “kit” will include the trunk floor, trunk foor extension, and two trunk floor reinforcement ribs (the pieces on the bottom of the floor above the gas tank).
Additionally, you may consider the trunk “drop offs” and “shock towers” depending on how severe the rust is on your project. If all you need is a new floor, you may still need new reinforcing ribs. Look at what is included in a kit and the cost of the components separately and compare.
