69 Trunk lid

I am planning to buy the trunk lid trim pieces on my '69. My buddy seems to think my trunk lid is from a '68. It has been repainted and any screw holes were obviously filled. I saw in another thread that the lids are different for 68 & 69, is this true?

Yeah, they are completely different. 68 lid is straight across from edge to edge above the rear bumper and 69 dips down in the middle between the taillights and above the licence plate.

My buddy says the turn down on the 68 is more of a 90 angle than the arc of a 69. I guess I will find out when I get the trim.

I believe the 68 dips more, you can put a 69 deck on a 68 but it will have a larger gap, you can't put a 68 deck on a 69.

Your deck lid looks longer in the center than mine. Could you measure how wide your center section is? The gap on mine does look right.

I went ahead and took a couple measurements. The width of the dip is approx 28" and hangs down approx 1 1/4" using a straight edge on the dip and measuring at the corner of the lid.. The corner of the deck lid matches perfectly with the fender and there is an even gap the width of the bumper. Just like 68GTO400's. The lid is more of an arc and is definitely not 90.

Did the measurement today. The length from the edge of trunk lid to fender at the corner is almost 1 1/2". The length of the dip in the center is 24" so I think the lid is a '69 and the screw holes for the trim must have been filled before the latest re-paint.
