    I have a friend of mine that i have been helping re-assemble his 68 coronet convertible. The trunck pan was replaced and the mount and its original location for the spare tire have been lost. I was thinking that on convertibles the tire was mounted on the rh side and not in the middle since the top has to go down there. I was also wondering if the mount itself was differnet from a regular hardtop b body? I have a 69 roadrunner that is parted out that still has the mount if it would be the same as his. So if its not the same I may be in need of one or if someone is repoping this item let me know. Also pictures would be absolutly GREAT!
    Thanks in advance, Matt
