Get under the car with a long punch / rod with pointed end.

Punch the body right above the nut.... if not double paneled you'll see the peak on the pkg. shelf..

Am I the only one who had an issue with this panel not being able to be removed until the heater was unbolted first?
No one seems to have even acknowledged what I had previously said about that.
Hmmm, very curious?

American Mel,

I have a '61 Coupe, manual trans, with the same cover as yours- it can't be removed unless the heater box is removed first.

I thought this setup was very strange.

65 Monza Coupe
61 500 Coupe-W100181
Earliest '61?

Thanks Murph, I was beginning to think I am crazy.
Yes, it would be a lot of work to remove the panel just to do the Low-Band on a PG!

I don't remember having the heater box attached to the removable panel ( like it is in FC's).

The panel in my car was just like Ed's in the pics posted by Seth. The car was a 1962 700 2dr pg. The vin is long gone as I had the car 30 yrs ago. Every 1962 I've had since did not have the panel but those have been manual trans cars and a pg 4dr.

Made it nice for replacing the starter, brake lines, etc.
