1962 Hood Release
Where is the external hood release on a 1962 Hardtop Bird? I thought it was outside down behind the license plate? :confused:

Or was there an inside hood release system in '62?

It's internal, down to the left under the dash in the driver's side footwell. One cable runs to the left-hand hood latch, and a rod links that to the right-hand hood latch (Dunno about the early models, but '61 and '62 have two). There is the usual single external second safety latch lever in the centre of the hood above and behind the grille.
