Is it supposed to hold the registration or something? It is a firm piece of metal.

I don't know for sure, but guess it's to hold your insurance and registration card.

I always assumed it was to hold your registration, since insurance cards were non-existent in 1965.

If my poor old mind remembers, it seem to me that did retain the information of the factory making/assembly of the vehicle.
I do remember those. Again, sorry not sure.

Apparently in 65 the clip was not standard. Not sure what trim level got the clip.

And real men stash a stack of hunnies in the clip. Impresses the women when they open the glove box.
The clip wasn’t added until 66. It’s designed to hold the Owner’s/Warrantee card.

Good pic of one here

Warranty Card Holder location?

Actually my first car was a 68 coupe without the console. Rolling papers fit perfectly where the carpet sections overlapped a few inches before the shifter. And even better??? You could remove the steering wheel insert and there was a hole to access the bolt. A film canister fit perfectly in there (in case you needed to hide your 'film'). 😁
