Since the 41" holes seem to be out of the ordinary, is it possible to check with the PO? Heck, he may even still have the rack laying around.

Default Luggage racks

Two things that don't belong on a Corvette, luggage racks and mud flaps. JMO. But to each, his own.

That was some rack!
I can imagine you're glad it's gone.
The holes from my rack have been filled for more than 10 years too. While my car lives a pretty easy life there's no sign of them eitherů. and it's acrylic lacquer.

See post #4.

Funny thing was, I couldn't get the rack off fast enough, but had a couple of people who couldn't wait to buy it. Both said it was the design they had back in the day.

What is the deal? I realize that in 1970, the logger racks were a dealer installed item, so who knows what rack the dealer might have used? Or, one of the owners may have installed it, so who knows which one they installed? It may have been a luggage rack from a later model? I really don't want to put a rack back on it, but hear the bad stories, that the repairs on the luggage rack holes often do let last because the fiberglass repair shrinks. I feel like I HAVE to put a luggage rack back on. Who knows about a Vette luggage rack that is 41" apart? Talk to me, plz!

I wonder if it was this type used on a '66 Corvair with 4 holes.
