John do they also have the earlier keys?
hard to tell with the pics so close up.I'm sorry, I don't understand what you mean? Hard to tell that it is a deck lid? Take my word, it is. Hard to tell if it is original paint? Take my word, it is. Picture opening a trunk lid, looking up at the underside area where the latch is located. Now with the lid in the open position the runs would be going up hill. I offered a picture of the hinge area as further proof that the paint is original. Also thought that the hinge detail is a good reference pic for restorers as it can be seen that the area just behind where the hinge mounts is void of paint. Picture trying to paint the area just in front of the hinge ( between hinge and front lip) with lid mounted and how you could not get paint in that area pointed out. So we know lids were mounted when painted. This lid is evident of that fact. The lid was in the up position when painted. So, why are the runs going toward the back edge instead of following gravity and going down the lid? Understand?
Do you have any pictures of your car that you can post? Would love to see it.
