The US Stands for United States Rubber Company Which made the majority of the tires for GM. Is Uniroyal today.

Not really trunk related, but original factory worker thumb print in the dumbo used to seal the nut at the end of the vent wing and side glass divider.

Incredible! What a connection with the past. I'm going to look for that from now on.

I'm also looking for pics of how the jack and tools are meant to go on a 1954 Bel Air

Let's see if I can explain it without a photo. There should be a spring permanently attached to the trunk floor with one or two of its coils at the front and just to the right of the recess for the spare tire and to the left of the wheel house. It is attached to a tab that is spot welded to the trunk floor. This spring is approximately 18 inches. I'm not 100% sure on length...can verify this later. There should be a larger metal ring attached to the other end of the spring.

There should also be two additional tabs spot welded to the trunk floor. One larger tab toward the quarter panel close to the trunk cardboard liner and another further to the rear of that but again closer to the spare tire well.

To properly stow the jack, you would first place the jack base inverted into a small concave divot in the trunk floor. On top of that you would place the mast of the jack and the tire iron together on top of the jack base and parallel to the spare tire well.

The spring would now be drawn over the mast and iron and hooked into the far right tab that is close to the right trunk cardboard liner, then stretched or drawn tight, once again, over the mast and tire iron after which the large metal ring at the end of the spring is hooked into the lower tab that is at the right of the spare tire well.
