Nope, in fact as far as I know the headlight "ring" is the same from 63 thru 67 in appearance.

You're right Brian. It was 61-62 that did the different trim rings. I give up on the 63-64 deal.

Matt, you got it! It's your floor. And you know in my search for some info on that I found I made a mistake in that it wasn't ALL 63's somewhere mid year they changed to the metal ones that they would use up thru 67.

Tech question:
What is the difference between Bendix and center plane brakes and what is the advantage of the latter.

My education said that the Bendix are self energizing in that the are really not connected to the backing plate by anything but the hold down springs and restricted in rotational travel by the stationary pin. The, upon application tend to try to follow the brake drum and wedge themselves tightly to that drum. The more brake pedal pressure, the tighter they wedge. The other style, and what were/are called Lockheed are held tightly, usually at the bottom with the pedal pressure to the fluid being the only activation force. Pre '49 Fords and MoPars through at least '56 or later, I believe, used this system or a variant in the late MoPars, and they used double wheel cylinders with 2 opposing double pins/posts or in some cases, stepped cylinders. They required an involved two part adjustment The MoPar's were without a doubt, crap brakes(much personal experience fixing them). There is NO advantage

Nobody? Ok. True center plane brakes, have two cylinders and two anchors causing each shoe to act as a leading shoe providing for self energising full shoe contact.
Downside- Short lining life, grabbing, noise and difficult adjustment.
OK IC, your floor
