Show me the JUNK in her trunk!

I'm looking for ideas on how to finish the interior of my trunk. Right now I have nothing but spatter paint. No mat, no jack, no tire...Nothing! Lets see pictures of what you all have done back there. I need some inspiration, my vehicle is basically a stock looking 67 SS clone, but I'm open to any ideas.

My trunk is about the same as yours, spackle paint, no spare or jack, no trunk mat, no anything. Not very inspiring I guess, sorry, haha!

I do put two old pillows on each side of my quarter panel on the inside for when I take the car to get groceries every weekend. This prevents anything from sliding around and denting my quarter panel from the inside out. But thats not for looks obviously.

If it was me I'd leave it how you have it, probably looks nice and clean in there. What were you looking to do with it? If you wanted to go with the stock look you could get the spare and jack back in there, get a nice trunk mat off of Classic Industries or something like that, and go for that look.

Maybe some other car show guys will chime in and show us some pics of their custom trunks or something. I havent' seen too many fancy trunks though, usually guys spend the bucks on the engine bay making that look all cool and stuff.

HAHA, pillows

<----------I used Uhaul blankets in the trunk of the 64 I'm leaning on back in high school. Made a good "trunk" type carpet.


I would like to box it in. Nothing fancy...probably use black carpet to cover it. It is a stock looking driver so I don't need a $10k stereo and leather/suede. Mainly cuz I dont have $10K to spend on it!
Maybe something that looked like it could have come from the factory if they had finished trunks back then.

All I did was I put one of the roll on bedliners in my trunk, Herculiner. Trunk had NO rust on the floor so I did it to preserve the no rust factor. It also helps to prevent stuff from sliding around in the trunk.

Will you be showing the car at car shows? What sort of look are you going for?

It's a 63 not a 67 but might give you ideas.

I like that...simple like I'm looking for. How do you get the carpet to conform to the floor like that?

No car shows...just a driver. I would like to box it in and make it look like it could have come from the factory that way.

Fill it with "STUFF".



I have a batt cover I made. But I will prolly finish the floor in carpet. Might use the same stuff I used in the passengers compartment. Its a high grade marine carpet that can handle the abuse a trunk sees.

But I like the pillow idea for the quarter well area Keeps the beers from falling into no mans land JR
