Your President did not have a factory installed trunk. Only the FE President Brougham had a factory installed trunk. All of the State Presidents came with a trunk rack installed, but, the new owner or dealer installed an after market trunk. So, any trunk that fits the rack, and is correct for the year, will work on your car.<BR>Regarding the misc. cast metal parts (inside/outside door handles, steering wheel lever controls, ignition lever, radiator cap etc.), you can get them from Steve Munts 509-924-4572 call for a catalog, he has many cast metal and rubber parts for your car.
