I worked for Dodge in 74 & 75. Those mopars were known for leaks in the trunk.

You have a trunk lid seal around the edge plus sometimes the taillights would leak also.

the cause is the rear window a real common thing with mopars its usaly rust in the lower corners between the seal and body. the right way to fix it would be to remove the rear window repair the rust then install the window with a new seal. a quick temporary fix get 100% silicone push the trim and seal back with a putty knife sqeeze silicone in press down this should keep water out & protect the trunk until you can make a proper repair.

Start replacing your seals around your trunk and anyplace else that has seals in that area. Check with a Mopar dealer or Steele Rubber products for the necessary materials. If water is a constant problem you need to get that corrected asap, to avoid bigger complications down the road. I got a old Mopar that leaks around the windshield, but the only way to fix it is to replace the windshield or carry a big sponge when driving in the rain.

Climb in the trunk and close it (latch it) get a friend to spray a hose on the car and you will find the leak. (bring a flashlight).
