I was unclear here...
I should have added:

>louvers WHICH ARE DIFFERENT THAN LATER MODEL DECKLIDS, visible from outside.
...meaning you can tell the difference without opening the
decklid. There is that circular indentation in the inside panel of
the decklid so as to clear the spare tire in '61-up early
decklids. Looking down at the decklid, you can easily see the
indentation on the '61-up lids through the louvers. The '60 decklid
has no such indentation.
