    As the title suggest I'm in need of a trunk floor. I know there are a few suppliers in the US that sell them new which is exactly what I want however they won't ship up north to Ontario for whatever reason.

    Are their any Canadian C body guys that know of a place in Canada that manufacturers new trunk floors?

    I am slowly in the process of getting back into my 66 Fury III after moving and starting a new career and I think the fixing the trunk floor before swapping the slant 6 or changing out the drums for discs is probably the best option for now.

    Thanks in advance.

    The new floors are from what I've heard not very good in the fit department. I suggest buying a rust free one from one of the Arizona wreckers and having it shipped up to Buffalo or Niagara Falls.

    That's what I did and the parts were excellent.

    Ross has a good suggestion there but you would have to ensure the replacement floor is in very good condition and cut exactly where you want it. Just how much of the floor is gone anyway? If it's just the flat portion a good metal shop can fab one including rolling the beads for strength. If the car is a perfect restoration job you'd probably do best to source a floor down south. These cars are so hard to find parts for. If you need a good engine for the beast PM me as I have just the ticket and I'm just down the road. I also have other parts you may need. Good luck!

    Thanks for the reply. It's just the left side of the trunk just behind the area where leaf springs attach. There was a hole about the size of my fist that was patched before I bought it and was done really poorly. The previous owner just cut two pieces of metal and sandwiched it with a ton of panel adhesive, painted it black and under coated it. I only discovered this nonsense about a month ago (again new career and new house takes my time) but I will look into a metal fab shop and see what they can do about it.

    I'll shoot you a PM
