I was able to replace mine without even taking out the rear seatback... just had to remove the sail panels and yank up the hanging vinyl bit that hung behind the seatback. Then it just lifted out. Pushed in the new parcel shelf and stuffed the hanging vinyl bit behind the seatback using trim tools.

. By sail panel are you referring to back quarter panels?

You guys are talking about the metal package panel that so far is not made or the cardboard speaker panel ? If it's the metal I think some have used s Chevrolet piece . Doug

No, the cardboard bits covered by vinyl that are behind the rear windows. (Interior trim, not metal.) If ya'll are talking about metal and not trim than may god save your souls.

That is affirmative. Annoying work but straightforward, they can all come out without even removing the seatback or seat cushion (unlike on some other cars).

Hello all,

I am looking for some information about the 68 rear package shelf area. I obviously am missing something in that area on my 68. The area below what I guess are called sail panels ends abruptly, I am sure there is supposed to be some trim piece(s) of some sort there. I have included some pics, one of the passenger side and one of the drive side. Hopefully, they show what I am talking about? It is also obvious I need a new package shelf, but what else is missing here? Thanks!!
