Default Will a PT hood fit in the back?

I am going to look at an aftermarket hood I found on Craigslist after I get off work. If I do buy it can I get it home in the back of a PT? I have hauled a rear hatch in the back before, but not sure if the hood fits. Thanks in advance.

Hoods are much smaller than rear hatches. Yes it will fit fine. You could probably stand it behind the front seats with taking the rear seats out at all.

I once stuck a previously removed hood off of a salvage PT in the back to protect it for the next guy that wants it. It will fit.

Yup, it'll fit. In fact you can also get a front fender in there with a back door window rolled down. Let the fender hang out a bit. I picked 'em up at our local u-pull-it last year during their special 50% off sale. use plenty of towels for padding and rope for tie down. Haven't installed 'em yet though. They're decorating my apartment 'till I do some cosmetic repair later on.ptprice:
