Tom here is how the jack is stowed on my '62 - this jives with the jack instruction decal, and my jack has probably never been used:
I can just see the look on Texas Tom's face right now...
The 61 /62 used a board panel that matches the other trunk boards to close the jack area with the twist closer and eyes at the top to hold it closed where the 63/66 used a Burtex curtain that lifted up to cover the jack.
I noted in the second picture that JW posted that the twist closers can be seen, the jack location also matches the 62 owners manual. The reproduction jack stowage instruction decal for the 62 has the handle on the tab but it may be generic, guess your car is still in storage 60fore. Oddly the OFS shows 3 different decals they all have the handle on the tab but if you have a wire wheel for a spare the on a 62/63 the post mechanism sits on top of the trunk bracket the other 2 have only the post on the bracket.
