I was hoping some of you out there could post some pictures of the interior trim panel that finishes off the cab behind the seats. When i got my 1966 it was missing. Im pretty sure its the same on 1966's and 1967's. Thanks

I understand your concern that something is missing. I thought the same thing. The deluxe models may have, but my basic model did not. So I pop riveted a sheet of aluminum to the top and bottom flanges. Then when I had custom carpets made I had the shop cover the area with the same carpet used on the floor. That was in 1992 and it still looks good.
1967 Ranchero, 89 Mustang 5.0 w/aod, subframe connectors, Monarch/Granada disc brakes, 235-60x15 wheels and tires. 150,000 miles since conversion in 1992.

Thanks for the info, mine is a deluxe interior with bucket seats. It did have a black painted fiber board covering the area but I figured it wasn't original. I may have to try and replicate it.

The stock "deluxe" option was a small attachment that ran across the top of the rear bulkhead. This attachment had a small rod inserted into it, around which fabric is attached, hanging down from the rod. This allowed easier access to the storage compartment, while hiding the unsightly bulkhead.

Heres the original panels that were on the car



Then here is what i made using a sheet of aircraft plastic, aerosol adhesive, and felt


I didnt have the steering all the way in at this point, but heres some interior.

If you try to make the door panels like this, i would suggest to put a pad or something behind it (im dealing with it rattling when the car is idling)

I would bet it's the same panel that on 68-69's. The rear panel on my cab looks the same as what's pictured above. There's a fiberboard panel that curves in at the top and is held by a trim piece just under the rear window. This panel has a curtain at the lower edge that covers the rear access compartments. The passenger side has a bit of extra material to cover the spare tire.

These panels are available - I've seen them in the catalogs. Here it is from Dearborn. Their description is a bit off, but it's the panel you're looking for.
