59 Fairlane 500 2 dr. Ht

Question:
I have purchased (3) "0" gold trunk lid covers and all three are a different style than the one that came on my car. I had sent my original to Nu-chrome in Mass. to refinish last Aug. and cannot get it back. (No Answer) (Bankrupt) Question, Is the Retractable HT have different style that the Galaxie & Fairlane 500's?

Response(s)
Harold, if you are talking about the 5 0 0 that goes under the fairlane script, the retractable is different than the others because one of the zeros swings open do you can get the key in to open the trunk whereas the retractable has no keyed trunklid. I believe the other numbers are the same on both models. I hope you get your parts back, they're a pain to find any.

I know the center swings, but the ones I purchased on the net have a different style. I know the 59's where the only models to have three indepentant numbers on the trunk lid. My numbers are flat face then rounds off toward the body. The ones I purchased have flat surface the angle about 45 degree for a 1/4 inch the angles again toward the body also about a 1/4 inch. Hope you can Help. Note I sent another question today asking the same info please disreguard that one.

1969 Ford Galaixe 500 Conv

Question:
What year door panels will fit my 1969 500 conv

Response(s)
Unfortunately they are 1 year only. 1970 panels will fit the door but you have to convert the inner door handle hardware from the "squeeze" type of the '69 to the more conventional pull type of the '70.
