Default 1960 Convertible top light survey

I'm not sure how many 1960 convertible owners we have here, but I am curious as to whether or not you have a top indicator light on your dash. I believe it was optional but have not seen it mentioned in any options lists. Do you have one???

Jerry, according to Automotive Mile Posts, there was a Deck Lid Open Warming Light ($4.80) that was optional equipment for the 1960 Squarebird. Here is the Optional List.

Of the 10 or so 60 Convertibles that I've owned I've only seen 2 equipped with the deck warning light.

I've had 4 or 5 60's and none of them had the light.

Thanks for finding that! It's the first time I've seen it listed.

Thanks for the info John! I suspected it was rather rare.

My deck light is located below the top switch in that panel to the right of the steering column.

I've got one, but it's not functional. I haven't looked into why, could be just a bad bulb.

Some pictures of it along with the switch in the driver's side of the trunk that activates it on Flickr here:
