Hi
What is the difference between a Fastback and formal roof trunk lid? Im guessing the overall length from windshield to bumper and the curve at the bottom? Any easy way to tell from pictures of the underside?
Thanks

It's the same trunk lid for both body styles.  The formal top has a filler panel between the back window and the trunk lid, while the fast back the the trunk lid goes right to the edge of the back window.

Ok. I was told they were different. I dont have a formal roof to compare and looking at pictures I could not find any difference. That makes my search easier. Thanks
