Now that several of my 56 Dodge projects are wrapping up I need to be thinking ahead to my next project: A trunk storage box for oil, coolant, spares, etc.

I think I would build it from 1/2" 11 ply birch plywood. Maybe with a partition. Maybe be with a lid. It would sit behind the spare tire in the right fender cavity.

Something like this sketch:

Heres my one Dave http://www.forwardlook.net/forums/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=62281&...

Perhaps you would consider not to have a spare tire at all? http://www.forwardlook.net/forums/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=62285&...

Thanks for the ideas Sven. I must have seen your trunk box before because my sketch is much the same as yours.

Not sure about the no spare thing. I've always carried a spare. Now I even have one around my waist.

I use a $5 Harbor Freight tool bag. Then I put it on top of my spare which I mount upside down. The tools won't jostle out of the wheel that way. I have a duplicate set of cheap tools in the 57 Plymouth, the 80 Camaro, and my 91 Volvo. Using Harbor Freight coupons I would doubt if any one of those bags of tools was $25 invested total. Of course, the 99 Crown Vic that broke down on the way back from Florida this week was the one car with zero tools. Oh well.
