Report Electric trunk release in 1965-83 Avanti Posted May 23 I have a 1969 Avanti that I would like to have an electric release added to. I would like one that has a remote control. I would like this as something that I could use all of the time and also in case the cable release fails as I am disabled and cannot use the hatch on the rear parcel shelf. Any suggestions as to what to buy and if this is even possible? Thank you.
