Well mine is a 65 but I got the same clip. Mine mounted on the transmission cross member to keep the cable from getting onto the exhaust pipe and melting which my last one did because I didn't have the retaining clip.
With your cable on the clamp, you push the stud part through the hole in the clip and knock it into the hole in the pan or frame rail where it is supposed to go. Since the middle of that stud part is folded up, I believe you are supposed to slide a thin flat blade down in there once you have it in the hole and tap it lightly to spread that out. I haven't done that yet and mine is still loose. Spreading the center of that folded up nub on the stud is the same and pinching the stud tabs on the other kind. It spreads the stud out on the inside of the hole and tightens down the clamp. The difference is this one that you show can't be "un-spread". I'm afraid I might still have to move something or whatever. Make sure you are done before you tighten that down because these were/are apparently notorious for being one time install parts.
