Trunk Evaluation — 6 Comments

  1. Hi Dave I was surprised to see some one else restoring a 60 Buick trunk interior. I have had the backing boards die cut from my originals. I made an extra set and that might be some help to you. I glued the fabric to boards and learned some things the hard way. Judging from your pictures you are missing some off the trim panels. I could make patterns from mine. My car is Electra 225, so you might have to trim.

    • Hi George, you are correct, some of my cardboard trunk panels are missing. It will be a while before I get around to restoring the trunk… are you planning to have more sets made and offer them on the web? Seems like I saw a pre-cut panel kit that were already available on the net but I can’t find it again.

  2. George or Dave: I have a 1960 Buick Electra 225 convertible. I would greatly appreciate patterns so I can have the boards die cut for my trunk. Please feel free to email me at JONOSSO@AOL.COM Thanks!!!!

  3. George and/or Dave, I am on the same boat as Jonathan, but I have a 1960 Buick LeSabre 4dr Sedan. I would also greatly appreciate patterns so I can have the boards die cut for my trunk. Please feel free to email me at jtwmj84@gmail.com Thanks!!!!

  4. George, Dave,
    I just finished restoring the trunk of my 1960 Invicta convertible. C.A.R.s Inc. (www.oldbuickparts.com) carries the pre-cut trunk boards. They are not the hounds tooth pattern, but you can find the material and glue it on to the boards.
    Good luck,
    Dave
