1955-56 possibly more years trunk auto close/release
« on: December 30, 2017, 10:50:40 PM »
I have a good trunk auto close/release mechanism that I got when I restored my 56 Eldorado.  I know that some (few) 55's had this option, but many later cars did as well with few changes.  I don't have the under dash switch.  Let me know if you're interested and I'll get some pictures posted.
Thanks,

Ken,

The usual problem, if the unit motor works, is the switch. The hood will pop open but the switch will not engage to bring the mechanism up so that it can be closed.

A vendor restores these.

Got any idea if the unit works, ie., the switch?
