Trunk stuff
« on: April 10, 2019, 01:37:51 AM »
Hi friends,
I need some help with the cardboard stuff that came with my car. Where is this all going? And is this what originally came with our '62's? Or is this aftermarket? And is it all there or do I miss some parts?

those are original for 61-62 devilles  the board with the brackets fits on the right side to hold the jack parts..the other large one fits the left side .. the smaller ones shown fit around the hinge supports ..they show to be all there .if they are brittle and cannot be used opgi has direct fit replacements .

Pretty sure that long bracket on the one card gets screwed into the trunk metal just to the right of the closing mechanism directly aft of the spare tire, this is for the jack base. The smaller bracket location looks correct and is for the jack's bumper catch.

Can someone post a pic of his trunk how it's supposed to look like?

From my observations, 62s had the jack stand base strap on the side, as in the photos, while 61s had them attached to the rearmost trunk sheet metal, as perk mentions.

The small black band on the left side is for the wooden wedge that was used to block the tires.

There is no small black band on the left side. There are two black metal retainers on the right side. The smaller of the two holds the jack hook and the longer one holds the jack base.
