Well the additional pictures confirm the automatic transmission (brake pedal) , the likelyhood of a console (holes along the transmission tunnel)  and some additional AC pieces and parts (grommet for the line to the condenser on the driver's side floor

1965 Mustang non-GT, Wimbledon White (M or 5M), 289 2v (C-code) coupe (07 vin plus 65A on data tag), auto trans (6), console, (therefore had to have buckets ;) ) San Jose built (R), two-tone blue & white interior (42 or D2), Air Conditioning, Deluxe Steering wheel, radio: I assume no radio or AM only, since no other options in 65

I am sure those doing build sheets and VIN consecutive build numbering could add more data but this is the easier list :) Perhaps the data tag info I suggested could be whittled down more also to include a closer estimated build date as well. Have to leave something for others ;)

I thought the black piece on the floor was the remnant of a firewall pad.  Didn't look like a San Jose one.

My original guess was a late 64.5 Dearborn V8 coupe, auto w/AC.

I actually thought the black piece on the floor was a piece of carpet underlayment.  They easily rip and break up with age.  :o

A possibility - though the hole is what lead me away from that

Is the black piece the bolt-on cover that hides the evaporator connections on a '65 air unit?  If I remember right, it would be near the driver's knee when installed in a car.
