Used Trunk or Deck Lid Grade A Late 1971 1972 Mercury Cougar
Late 1971 (4-1-1971) through mid late 1972 Mercury Cougar, approximate cutoff is 3-1-1972. Look for two different things to differentiate the trunk lids. First is the spacing on the bolts to the hinges. This style has a 4-1/4 inch spacing, early 1971 deck or trunk lids have a 3 inch spacing on those hinge bolts. The seconde is the style of deck / trunk lock cylinder attachment. D1WY-40110-B style has the internal style of keeper for the trunk lock cylinder. These deck / trunk lids do not have a rectangular access hole under the trunk lock.For deck / trunk lids it is all about rust under the inner rear lip... We still check it over good for excessive filler, correct contour on all the lines and hidden rust under the weather strip. Keep in mind we also have panels that fall in between an A and B, it is hard to list every grade of panel on our site so sometimes you will have to email to see what we have. We ship deck / trunk lids with several layers of thick cardboard / foam and insure them for the full amount. Keep in mind shipping is free if you order at the same time as a hood, door or quarter panel. Ford part # D1WY-40110-B.
