Couple of points. Agree with everything Tony has commented on.
I see no spot welds where the reinforcement plates would have been welded in by the factory.
There is no seam sealer at the bottom edges of the reinforcement plates as the factory would have applied.
If it's a 1966, and seat belts were standard, I do not see the seat belt mounting bracket through the hole in the reinforcement plates,
Just a few observations.
