Response to I ended up with one of those too.

I don`t know how long this style of lug wrench was supplied with various Fords, but my 69 & 70 Mustangs, 78-80 Fairmonts, and 85 Mustang all had simiar looking wrenchs in the trunk. As for securing it, at least on my 69/70 Mustangs, the spare tire was installed in the trunk "upside down", with the jack fitting inside the backside of the wheel, and the lug wrench layed on top of the wrench handle, which has a hole in it. A threaded rod with a hook at the bottom hooked into a loop on the trunk floor, and went thru the wheel, jack, and wrench handle, with a large stamped steel wig nut holding it all together.
