well I could be mistaken, but I thought 65/66s had a different engine bay size, so wouldn't the shock towers be slightly different from the 67/68s? if so, then it doesn't fit 65-68. and if it doesn't fit that, which of the years does it fit?

Did you call LMM and ask them? 65-68 seems to be too broad of a range, as mentioned above.

64-70 export brace is the same, so "65-68" is a bit odd. I do not like tubular braces- they only have strength in one direction. A good export brace and Monte Carlo bar are superior. If you have modifications which make that impossible, the linked item is better than nothing.

Amateur restorer. Well, sometimes I have been paid for it. But not right now.

1965-1968 is the same on the tubular brace. 1969-1970 is different at the firewall.
