Anyone know 65 Mustangs? Got a question about trunk floors

do these holes look factory? I think they belong there. What are they for?


Then there was this hole that was filled. I suspect I need to break out the welder on this one? Can anyone identify this one?

Maybe alignment holes to fit them to the jig on the assembly line....look a bit small for that, but you never know

Are they just on the one side? They certainly don't look stock and there was nothing to mount there. These cars had nothing like trim panels, covers, nothing what so ever that would have mounted there. I don't remember any such thing for any reason what so ever.

My 67 has them too, on both sides. It's all gutted right now and I don't remember if there was wiring that ran down through there; I think it would go out the sides of the trunk extensions. The wiring would need to get down behind the rear valance for the reverse and license plate lights. A body plug might fit in there too, which is what I'll probably do with mine. The reproduction trunk extensions has that same hole as well.

He's talking about the little screw holes, they look to be 1/8", they aren't stock that I know of. If your 67 has them just as Henry points out, than they are original of course and I really want to know now!

Trunk dropp off holes

Those holes are for the left side trunk filler extension board which is a wood panel that is attached to hide the dropoff by two screws. I am not sure what the third hole farther forward by the wheelwell is.

I am blown away, I did a number of these cars years ago when they were darn near new and don't remember ever seeing anything like that. Very good info for Henry! In that link they also show a strip of rubber being put over the pinch weld on the wheel house, that I remember but only after seeing the photo. Good stuff! Thanks for sparking my memory and coming up with the right info.

I was thinking the same thing that some had a hardboard trunk liner on the side panels next to the gas tank. Been years sence I've worked on one of these. Use to get one in the shop about every other week back in the 70's.

thanks a lot guys, especially Billrabe. Less welding now! I had a feeling at least that third hole wasn't factory cause it was filled. Will leave those two holes then.

today I went to Sac Mustang to get some bumper brackets and as I was leaving I saw the particle board piece that belongs there. They even elongated the holes a tad to ensure a good fit to the holes. I'll come back for that piece when it's time. Thanks again.

i had a 66 mustang,and the location you are pointing to,Is where a piece of 'hardboard' was screwed in place.Mine had it.But my brothers 66 didnt.So i cant give a definitive answer as to whether its factory holes or not..everybody is a 'pro' and knows everything about everything there is to know.But Mine had hardboard covering that void behind the wheelhouse,thats where the screw holes were to secure it to the trunk floor.My brother had a 66 he bought when it was a year old..there are no holes there and no harboard...but i have seen a 66 with hardboard there.fill the holes in if you dont like the looks of them,or re-install a piece of hardboard
