I don't know that there's any hard-and-fast rule but usually it's curved for sedan/phaeton and straight for coupe/roadster/cabriolet. IOW, the back of the trunk follows the profile of the back of the car.

I am one of those hundred viewers. The answer seemed obvious (and I am sure it was to Baxman01). I am sure that Baxman01 wanted more than a guess, which he had probably already made himself. What is the basis of your answer?

With over 80 trunk manufacturers back in the day, it was obviously personal preference. I have straight back on my Sedan and my 29 roadster. I like the look better.

Have a straight on my 31 Roadster and a curved on my 4 door, they both look good.

Wow, it worked...seven replies
How did I come to my answer...body style.
But run what "YOU" like...that is truly the correct answer.

And a Happy New Year to all the Barn Owls
