1937 Packard 120 Conv. Coupe Trunk Lid
#1

I'm in the process of restoring a 1937 model 120 conv. coupe and wondering if someone could tell me how he trunk lid stays open? It appears to me that it could be a spring / springs that hold it open as there is a tab on the hinge? If this is the case would anyone know if they are available, I've contacted several of the major Packard parts suppliers and they were not sure? I would think the sport coupe and 1936 conv. coupe and sport coupe would also be the same.
Thanks Dave

Hey Dave..working on the car, good. The hinges hold the trunk lid up; feel how stiff they are and you'll believe me.

Are you sure there are no springs on the hinges?

This may help you, if I understood your question about springs on the hinges. They only should be mounted one way,to prevent braking them.

The trunk lid and springs on my 115C Convertible Coupe should be the same as the ones on your 120C. Here are some photos of the springs and hinges. Note the springs are mounted in the correct position. Hope they help.
