    Did all Chrysler models (NYer/Newport/300) and body styles use the same trunk lids during these years?

    69 and 70 do not interchange.

    Thanks for the speedy reply! I never noticed that central ridge in the '69 trunk. If we look just at 1970, do Chrysler coupe, sedan, and convertible trunk lids interchange?

    The amount the rear of the trunk overhangs is different too.

    I believe they will all interchange, except for the obvious 300 Hurst that is. You can cross part numbers with the parts manual to double check this.

    That's what I noticed; didn't even see the ridge.

    Interesting as I would have said yes to the question. Did not know that....

    Yes, and will interchange with all '71's too.
