I recently purchased a 65 GTO that someone else disassembled and then he had some less than proficient people work on in reassembly. The rear-most hood latch ( not safety latch) which bolts on from underneath the header panel has the release lever at around the 10:00 position. This captures the latch lever between the radiator and the front sheet metal between the grills, making it impossible to access. I suspect it's installed wrong or possibly the wrong latch, but have been unable to find an assembly diagram on-line that shows the proper position. Is there supposed to be an under-dash hood release cable that attaches to this lever? Does anyone have a diagram they an share or short of that, a body panel assembly manual they can recommend? I have the 65 Tempest Chassis manual that came with the car, but it does not cover details like this.
Thanks!
