Default '59 convertible jack mounting

I'm wondering if anyone has a picture of the jack mounting in the trunk of a '59 convertible. Mine mounts on the passenger side of the trunk but I can't find a picture anywhere and I've tried all different configurations and it just doesn't fit right.

Hi Ken, if you have a picture of the proper location for the jack in a Squarebird convertible, can you post it for others to see in the future? Thanks!

Ken sent me the pic of the storing of the jack for a '59 Convertible. Here is also pictures of how it is stored in the '60 Convertible, and for a Squarebird hardtop, all three years, from the OFS.

When I took my '59 apart the long spring was screwed in near the bottom on both ends and it looks like it's supposed to loop over the jack and onto a hook that's about 2/3 of the way up, not like the picture shows. I don't see any holes that would correspond to the way the spring is in the picture. Mine is an early production car so maybe it was trial and error by Ford.
