My spring came today. What balinwire suggested is an exact copy of our trunk spring. Will post pics later showing it.Now my question is was this a Cord only spring that GM found would work for them or did Cord find this GM part worked well for use...Sometimes it gets a little deep in my questioning...

Well I was wrong about the spring pictured here by balinwire as to be exact. Our original is .250 or just a little more wide. The replacement GM spring is .300 plus maybe a thousands or two. So its bout 50 thousands wider. Some spring modification will need to be made for it to fit the lock area that has been crushed down to capture it.See pics..

Glad it worked out for you, this type spring is common on door window risers, even modern cars there is one on a Harley kick starter. It may have been thickened to prevent breakage. Do you have a picture of the tab and small spring on the prop. They are online as well but I would like to see a video of how they work as my front and rear are missing.

I think the elbow part is called a flipper.
