You can find fibreglass and carbon fibre reproduction boot lids for a Mark II Ford Escort that sound pretty light, but how much does the standard trunk lid weigh in the first place?

Here's a photo of a Ford Escort Mark II boot lid - just how much does it weigh? Find out on

We weighed this one - from a 1977 Mark II 2.0L GL four-door sedan from Australia - at 9.0kg.

Keep in mind that the weight saving is not the only reason to consider a fibreglass alternative - the lack of rust is certainly an additional plus.

Simply looking for a replacement stock boot lid? You can sometimes find one on eBay Australia.
