Trap Door Bumper
#1
Hi all, can anyone tell me where the Trap Door Bumpers are located for a car with fold down rear seat? Thanks, Paul

They are inserted onto a "butterfly" shape, in between the 4 L embosses on the floor pan.
Here's a pict of what I call a butterfly.

Here is another pic. The rubber bumper were not painted with the trunk that is mold one them, lol. Not much rust in mine. Those ribs around the butterfly brackets were actually the weld fixture to locating them. That is a spare tire lock above one of them.

Another question: I've seen many, many '71-'73 Mach 1's WITHOUT trunk mats installed. Did these cars come from the factory without the trunk mat?

No fastback, Mach 1, coupes, or verts got mats only the Grandé. You can buy them but they were bit factory installed, cost reductions. I always kept a thick piece of carpet in my trunk turned upside down. I never really had more that a box with a few wrenches and oil and coolant. I never went on but one trip that was to Disney World the year I got the car. I broke a driveshaft U joint in Tampa drag racing a guy. I limped home by time home it was about to fall out of the car, lol.
I do not know if it was you I told to friend Scotty Strickland on facebook of not. He has a mustang junk yard and might have the spare bracket. There was one on Ebay last week I think $100. They came in other cars not just with fold down. You got space saver with I think Magnum 500 wheels.

Whew...I thought you guys were talking about a "real" trap door in the rear bumper to hide a key or something!  Tongue
