I bought a Ford underdash AC evaporator, and this piece came with it (see attached).
Do not know what model Ford the evap was from.
It looks like a trim piece, possibly between the bottom of the dash and the evap? ...but isn't a "coin tray" supposed to fit there?
Do both coin tray and this piece somehow fit?

It goes across the entire top of the evaporator from mounting ear to mounting ear and fills the gap between the dash and the back of the coin tray.

Yes! Thanks.
BTW, my AC liquid and suction lines come out the LEFT side of the evap, not the middle...???
OH! Can it be that your evap is a 1966, and thus does not have the removeable coin tray -- so this strip is specifically for a 1966 evaporator?

The spacer plate in your photograph is for 1965 and should also have a rubber seal along the lower lip. A 1966 evaporator under dash spacer plate is without an indentation under the ash tray and also has a rubber seal. The coin tray on a 1965 evaporator is removable and is held on by two screws along the side of the fiberglass housing.

Also, thanks for that pic of the 65 with the passenger side foot shield on the right side of the evap! Never saw something like this, altho' I had heard of it.
Are these available anywhere?

Yeah, factory original on 65 cars. Now and then one will pop up on Ebay.
