<VV> Luggage Rack

The stock rack for '65 and later is the same rack as offered for the
Corvette with slightly different feet. Therefore, pretty hard to find
because the 'vette guys will pay insane prices for them.

'65-6 is especially hard to find because it was produced for a shorter time
and presumably in smaller numbers. Looks a lot like later rack but has
different rear leg arrangement, specifically in the transition from vertical
to horizontal in the rear bar.

Clark's sells repros of the attaching hardware (C11112) and plastic tips
(CX5654). They also have a rack that has the same general look but is not
stock (C10066).

Yes, there was a luggage rack available as an option on lates (I'm not sure
what years it was available, but it was still in the option list for '69.
There was also an AMCO rack sold for lates.  I believe it was actually a
Mustang rack that almost fit the Corvair.  I have/had an AMCO rack (see
attached pictures -- sorry listers, no pix for you).

All, Was there ever a rear deck lid luggage rack available for the cars,
specifically the late models. I have seen them before on late models but I
see no mention of them in the parts book or the 65 accessories book. I have
a very nice NOS mid 70s rack for a Corvette, Firebird, or Camaro that looks
good sitting on the back of my 66 convertible. I am thinking about drilling
the holes for it before it goes for body restoration this summer. Any
thoughts? Thanks
