anyone ever try to put a 78-80 trunk lock on a newer car????
I found one in an old box of stuff and thought about seeing if it would work I liked the old emblem cover

I'm sure it is possible. There will probably be alittle bodywork massaging to get things mounted perfect. Good luck!

I figured I would need to file to fit the newer trunk profile.
if I can find a new emblem for it, I just might give it a try
