I thought I read the posts were shorter than the hardtops. Doesn't mean it's true.

I think they are for a '64 (because I need a sedan lid), but John would know on the '65.

Have y'all ever looked at a hardtop lid? or rather the space between it & back window? it is big enough for a luggage rack :lol: ok I'm exaggerating ,maybe a ski rack. But I remember Roy saying they were all a like.

All ‘64 sedan and hardtop/convertible decklids are the same. Here is a page from the Factory parts manual, model 71 is a wagon so obviously it does not interchange. This also applies to ‘65 models.

Part number 1964- C4GY-6240110-A
Part number 1965- C5GY-6240110-A

Ok I will admit I had been misinformed in the past then, might make finding a replacement trunk lid for my Comet a bit easier.
