Guess the piece/part

Ive had a few mustangs now and this is the first time I have come across this item still on the car. I know its not an obscure item but wondered how many people would know what it is or where it was located.
Guesses.....

Looks like the rubber weatherstrip from atop the radiator.

Looks like the piece that goes behind the rear bumper I suppose to keep water off the license lamp among other things.

(At least on my 69)

Rear License Plate Lamp Shield. That one is specifically for 1967-68. Ford Part#C7ZB-6540427. 1969 and up models were shaped differently and as I understand it, 65/66 models didn't have 'em, didn't need 'em.

^^^correct. Thought it would be harder. Lol. It's the first time I ran across one in the last 7-8 cars I've had.

I know what the part is but have never seen one on a car. There are a few parts, in reproduction, that I have never seen on a real car. Brian
