I'm putting my 65 Barracuda back together after it's been sitting in pieces for an extended length of time. Probably 3+ years since I pulled it down for paint, engine and transmission.

These things definitely came off of this car but I haven't been able to figure out where they go.
The bracket or brace is about 11 inches long.
The rubbers are obviously left and right mirror images of each other.

Thanks in advance.

The long brace goes from the hood latch mounting panel to the lower radiator support.
The rubber "bumpers" mount on the rear quarter panels behind the edge of the rear bumper

There should be shoulder bolts for those bumper pads and threaded inserts in the quarters.

Charlie, that brace might be the one that runs from the front of the K-frame to the bottom of the valence. The end that bolts to the K-frame is usually hits obstacles and gets smashed flat like that one is.

I was going from memory, and could be wrong. I'll go out and look at my car, as soon as the temp gets over 40 degrees.

Actually we were both wrong. The brace runs from the "K" member to the bottom of the radiator support, not the valance.
