    I just picked up a 51 coupe and need a hood and trunk lid.


    Will a four door or sedan trunk fit a coupe?

    Are the hoods interchangable between 49, 50, 51?

    Thanks Jeff

    Trunklids for coupe, convertible, and sedan are all interchangeable, and a trunklid from a baby Lincoln will also fit. I believe all 3 years of Merc hoods also interchange but the Lincoln hood won't fit.

    The only differences you'll find will be trim holes, and for a custom that doesn't really matter.

    Is there such thing as a 2 door sedan when it comes to mercurys or does sedan always mean 4 door?

    For my purposes, sedan means 4 door, and all the 2 door Mercs are "coupes".

  6. Post around, the parts will turn up. I bought the hood and trunklid from a 4 door parts car about 3 hours from me to redo my car.
