    The "bump" in the floor of the trunk is from the larger tires on the car, which the spare matches. Anybody figure our a way to avoid that? Guess I need a temporary spare like on newer cars. . .

    Dave, I have the original kidney wheel with a tire that matches closely the diameter of the 16" tires, just not as wide, fits great.

    Wow, That's clean looking, is that the stock hard plastic or is it wrapped in pleather?

    My original 35000 mile car- I don't think the spare has ever been out. Still has the factory foam around it and the jack...

    Hi folks. Very nice trunk views. My carpet is missing and I'm searching for a replacement, if possible an original used.

    Hi!
    Are you 100% sure it's original foam? Normally there's just brown plastic dust of the original foam due to ageing.
    But, if you got all the history from day 1 of your car it would be a nice reference of an original trunk.

    Stefan,

    I do have the history from day 1. Matt McGinn at SCR says it's the most intact original car he has seen. I have a binder of receipts and a letter from the third owner who purchased in the late 80s from a friend who purchased from the family of the original owner. The third owner had it repainted once in 1990. The cardboard tray under the front is intact, as are the yellow shrink wraps on the wiring going into the doors, the vacuum lines, etc. It's pretty cool. [​IMG]

    You'll have much better response if you post this in the Classified Parts section.
