Hood and Trunk props colors was created by Aris Loumidis
Hi all!
My trunk prop is painted grey-silver and the engine hood prop is painted Ivory as is the body color.
Is this the original correct way they should be?
Thanks
Aris

I believe both are supposed to be cadium plated silver but.. I'm also told that as the end of production they were painted black too. I have seen cad plated ones and they look great. Remember both hood and trunk supports had a spring to lock them in place as they were opened. The trunk had a flat wound spring where the hood had a coil wound spring. Usually the trunk spring breaks and the hood spring ends up missing.

I think that the flat back trunk lid, the bustle back trunk lid, and convertible trunk lid springs are all different.
