After decades of exposure to the elements and bad drivers, the trunk or tailgate on your classic car or truck is probably rusted, dinged or dented. And since most trunk lids and tailgates are flat, don't take a chance with a used panel because every flaw will end up showing through the paint. To make your car or truck factory new, you need genuine reproduction sheet metal from Goodmark.
Restoring cars isn't just a business for the people at Goodmark, they're also car enthusiasts and restorers just like you, and they wouldn't make anything they wouldn't install on their own cars or trucks. Each trunk or tailgate is CAD/CAM designed to make sure it exactly replicates the original part, and then it's manufactured with the most modern tooling. Each design is test fit to make sure it looks and fits perfectly. Many Goodmark parts have been approved by the manufacturers of the original equipment and are licensed to be sold as genuine replacement parts.
Because of its close proximity to the rear quarter panels and wheelhouses, the trunk area is known for rust and rot. You may have to peel back the trunk mat, but the damage is usually there. Goodmark has an extensive selection of trunk floor panels and trunk floor patch panels for most popular classic cars and trucks to make your trunk solid again. Besides dings and dents, trunk lids and tailgates are also susceptible to rust at their lower edges. Regardless of the type of damage, Goodmark has accurate reproductions of these panels that will make your vehicle look factory original.
Besides these major panels, Goodmark also has a wide range of hinges, weatherstripping, latches, strikers, lock cylinders, moldings and emblems to make the back of your vehicle perfect.
Goodmark® was founded in 1991 by car enthusiasts, restorers and collectors just like you. They recognized that there was a need for quality restoration parts, especially sheet metal parts, if the restoration of our beloved American classics was to continue. Since that time, Goodmark has created a complete line of sheet metal, trim parts, and accessories for popular cars like the Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang, and for previously difficult to restore cars like the Dodge Challenger and Plymouth Barracuda. Goodmark uses CAD/CAM (computer aided design and computer aided manufacturing) software and modern tooling and manufacturing techniques to create parts that are identical to factory original for perfect fit and finish. Quality parts tooled and manufactured by Goodmark are enabling many more American classic and muscle cars to return to the road, looking just as fine as the day they rolled off the assembly line.
