300L Coupe Trunk

Thanks to Don Warnaar for this information.

Don bought this L new and has kept the car as original as possible.
The trunk compartment is factory original.

The standard tire was a 8.55 X 14 Blackwall with optional 8.55 X 14 Whitewall
or 9.00 X 14 Whitewall & Blackwall. The Whitewall width was 15/16".
A carpeted spare tire cover was not available.

To be checked: The trunk side panels are black vinyl over cardboard. There is also a panel behind the rear seat in front of the crossmember. The trunk carpeting is a close-knit black loop weave.

The carpet ends without a hold down strip at the edge of the trunk.

The spare is on the passenger side under the jack. There's no room on that center shelf for a tire.
That is where the convertible top folds down.
