I've been looking for an hour or so, trying to find out what should be there

Right now there is a T handle on my Engine Deck lid, that is very loose, and I am pretty certain, that's not what came there in the beginning. I've tried to zoom in on some of the 62 SC pickup deck lids online, but I seem to see a variety of choices !!

So, what originally came with a 62 Single Cab ? And does some nice person have a picture, as I would like to obtain what was originally there for my 62' Smile

ID plate says it was built: May 17, 1962

Thank you in advance !

It should a hole with a spring-loaded chrome cover - No T-handle.

Looking at pics of buses can be a fun way to do research.
Another way is to know your chassis number... and look at the Parts List...

... then type the part number into Google.
