I purchased a mid restoration 1970 Coupe which I plan to finish. There is a problem with the Rear Decklid (trunk) it overhangs the back by about 3/4" and binds in the front when closing which means it needs to move back even further. This was all done by the previous owners body shop. The question I have is was there a difference between the fore aft length of a trunk lid between a coupe and a convertible? The previous owner mentioned something about the replacement rear quarters coming from a convertible. I can't find an answer on line and I also called a prominent mustang parts dealer. Any insight you might be able to provide would sure be helpful.

Coupe and convertible deck lid is the same. The body shop must have welded on the quarters without checking the fit of the deck lid . Can you tell if they were full quarter replacement or spliced in ?
