Can anyone supply a picture of the jack in the trunk on 57 -59 imperials. I want to see how it is installed and secured in the trunk.

I expect this is the same as '57-59 Chrysler and DeSoto. They have a tin hook spot welded to the right side floor just inside the vertical trunk panel. The cars then came with a silver cad plated threaded hook and strap bracket to hold down jack and handle. 300 Club has perfect repro of the hook and bracket with wing nut.

My 57 Desoto owners manual showed the jack shaft is stowed inside the trunk latch housing

If StillOutThere is right that it's the same as '57 DeSoto, it would be like these pictures.

Wayne,

The '59 is on the opposite side from the '57-'58's, at least in the DeSoto. I would assume at least the Chrysler is consistent with the DeSoto, but I don't know about the Imperial.
