Default 1940 Jack Storage

Where in the trunk of a '40 Tudor was the jack originally stored? I'm assuming that the base went in the tool bag with the other stuff, but what about the mechanism and shaft?

I believe that the jack was stored in a burlap bag and placed in the tool compartment in trunk

Doesn't the base help to secure the spare in place?

There's a dedicated clamp at the top of the spare which holds it in place. I'm guessing that the jack just lays in the tool compartment, but I want to make sure that it doesn't clamp in place somewhere.

It lays in the tool tray within a burlap bag. The tool tray is lined with a sound deadening material to minimize noise and I suppose, dents from the tools bouncing around. Small (hand) tools were placed within a vinyl pouch and subsequently that pouch was placed in the tool tray as well.

Thanks Kube. Does anyone make that burlap bag or what approximate size is it? My car is modified a bit with some hot rod parts, but I still like to keep these details reasonably correct for some reason.

He sells all the tools in a kit and also each piece individually. You can get the burlap bag as well as the vinyl wrench pouch.

Yep, Like Spiker says... Lin. VERY nice man and great to deal with. He'll most likely have any and all tools you may need to complete your kit.
