The early Henry J had no trunk lid at all; the entire back of the car was a single
stamping. To store anything in the trunk area, one had to reach behind the rear seat and lower the seat back onto the seat. Then you could lift over the seat and into the trunk area. Within months a traditional trunk lid was added; first, as optional, and later as standard. However, the rear window was a fixed, separate glass that was affixed to the roof stamping, separate from the trunk opening. The earlier K-F Traveler bodies had rear windows that raised on a roof hinge and lower trunk lids that were hinged close to the bumper; that was more like a station wagon situation. K-F had body panels for 2-door sedans and 4-door sedans; all their body styles were variations on these. The Henry J was a 2-door sedan only.
