Trunk light type and correct location for 1952 fleetwood
« on: November 28, 2017, 04:20:23 PM »
Hello
 can anyone offer any info on the placement of the trunk light/Mercury switch for my 52 Fleetwood, it would be helpful, and if there are any current sources to buy one, mine is missing. For any 52 Fleetwood owners, If you can share a photo of an installed switch, that would be very helpful.
I assume this trunk lite was standard equipment.
Thanks for your help
Peter

Peter,

      I believe it is the same on all 1952 Cadillacs (as well as all 1950-1953). It is located to the rear of the trunk lid, above the license plate and centered left to right. It is in a white zinc-plated housing, according to the Authenticity Manual, and mine appears to match that.

Hello john
Since you have a 52 caddy and were so helpful on the light, next time you have a moment could you help me about the bumper jack and how it is secured in the trunk. Mine did not come with one, but I have an old one I can use just need more details of even a photo to understand how it is situated.
Thanks in advance, and my new trunk lite is on its way.
Stay well
Peter
