I have read about the spare tire locations on the different models of the 63-64 's. As I removed my trunk mat on my CDV for the first time today I discovered something interesting. My spare has always been under the back shelf as I understand it should be on a Coupe Deville. When I removed my trunk mat I discovered the anchor for a J hook on the right side of the trunk had been cut out of the trunk floor pan. My mat had a square hole in the cardboard part of the trunk mat but the fabric had no hole for the J Hook anchor. In addition it was plain to see the anchor had been cut out with a torch and not painted over. I understand why the mat would have a hole in the card board but curious whether all the cars came with an anchor in this area to be removed by the dealer maybe or was this a fluke on my model ?
I instantly thought the floor pan had been replaced but there are certainly no signs of it.. So I guess what I am asking , has anyone ran across this before ?
