I do not know - but I'd like to expand the question out for the Verts too because I do need a new trunk lid for my 66 too.

I suspect because the roof line is different that the trunk lids will be different. But I do not know.

The 2-Dr Impala HT takes a Shorter Lid.
Although the Trim will be different on some.

The above is what I learned a year or so back. I bought a trunk lid for my 66 Biscayne 2-door from a local expert, (he's been into B-bodies only for years). He sold me a 66 Caprice lid and explained all this to me. BTW, I got lucky & got it for $60!
