Mid late 1972 Mercury Cougar, approximate starting is 3-1-1972 through 1973. D2WY-6540110-A style has the style of keeper for the deck / trunk lock cylinder that pushes up through a rectangular access hole in the bottom. These deck / trunk lids have a rectangular access hole under the trunk lock with a single rivet or screw hole. 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. There is a late 1973 style of trunk lid, that uses a trunk lock clip that has 2 screws unlike the common clip that has a single pop rivet.
