1965 and 1966 Mustang Fastback Trunk Lids

1965-66 Mustang Trunk Lid.  This one is generally referred to as the "'66 style", but you may find that they were also installed on some very late production '65 cars...at least in the San Jose plant.

Today, we want to look at the two different trunk lid configurations that are normally seen on 1965 and 1966 Mustangs.  The outside skin and shape are the same among the two styles.  The inside frame is where the difference is seen.

Generally, the "'66 style" has the round circles in the frame as shown above.  The below images shows what is normally referred to as the "'65 style".

It should be pointed out, that at least on the San Jose built Mustangs and Shelbys, you will find the later "'66 style" even on very late '65 production cars.  On GT350s, this transition occurred on the Carryover cars.  To learn more about the Carryover GT350s, visit www.CarryoverGT350.com.

While we are on the subject of trunk lids, take a look at some of the work from Jeremy at Maple Hill Restoration on the trunk lid for 1966 Shelby number 6S933.
