    Trunk size

    Hi MM owners.
    Any chance someone can have a quick measure up of the trunk space, im needing to fit a couple of suitcases and in pics with the spare tire where it is looks like it really may not fit.
    Reasoning being im from a far away land and planning to buy one, drive it around for a few weeks on holiday before sending it home.
    Suitcase rough measurements are 500mmx800mmx300mm.

    Thanks

    If this helps....

    A Marauder engine can fit in the trunk. Also multiple bodies....

    It's actually 20.6 cubic feet or .58 cubic meters.

    I travel for a living. I carry suitcases that are 30" tall roller checked bags and I put two and sometimes three in the trunk all the time. The full-sized spare will not stop you from carrying what you are specifying. If they are hard-sided, you will have to wiggle them around to get three in, but two EASY!

    As stated, the 2003-4 trunk is 20 cubic feet. HUGE

    Just for comparison, the 1963-4 trunk is 30 cubic feet!
    1963 Marauder S-55, Super Marauder 406
    Only factory 406 powered Marauder, and earliest built Marauder documented to still exist.

    Yep...the 'golden days' for sure. Sad it's nowhere near the same now, but glad to be a part of it back then.
