Are 340 A-Bodies (e.g. 1970 Dart) supposed to have that particleboard on top of the spare tire? Or was that for slant six and 318 applications?

They all had it, but it didn't fit quite right. My GTS still had one of the original Red Lines when we bought in 1983. The cover stood off the trunk floor a bit. Probably shortens the life of the trunk mat...

What Jim said, all my A-Bodies no matter what spare had the board...


The funny thing about science is that if you change one miniscule parameter you change the entire outcome to the way you want it.

Here is a pic from my GTS showing the original Firestone E-70 spare and the trunk mat with the particleboard in place.
