Default Convertible Package Tray

Curious if anyone has one to sell. I may need to sell some parts in order to buy this but just wondering. Thanks!

Your odds of finding a rust free one are about the same as winning the Mega-Millions; and will probably cost almost as much.

Hard to find and very expensive if you do find one. I would recommend a flipper tray to use for metal parts to repair a package tray if that is what is needed . A body man with good metal skills is then needed also . If you go this route , Timsthunderbirds has one in his inventory and very reasonable listed on ebay. Believe he is in your area .

Thanks. Not the hugest deal if I don't find one I'll keep my eyes open. It's not something that people are going to see really. But I figured I'd ask in case.

The purpose of the package tray is to give the convertible top a place to be tacked down and to cover the space between the trunk lid and the back seat. As long as the top doesn't come loose in the back I wouldn't worry too much about how it looks underneath. A good body man can make it look a little bit better than it does now without replacing it. Replacing one involves untacking the top, pads and rear window and repainting the new one to match the car. Not an easy job.

Kirsten found one on feeBay, but it was a bit rusted and would probably take a good metal man to fix it and a lot of money. Hers works okay, but someone did a repair job on it that has a lot to desire. I found that the Bird Nest has several, including one that is rust free for an arm and a leg, and more and he did not sneeze or laugh when he said it. Good ones are hard to find...
