Sure looks like that plate may be batch (dark grey) rather than black. Can you confirm the color by checking it against something painted black so others building 66 NJ cars will have an idea?

Guess your not done (last picture) with all the cleaning since the drain plug/plate still appears dirty or blackish.

Wonderful car hiding under the years and "stuff"

I am no where close to being done with cleaning the undercarriage. I am going to remove the drain plugs to clean them at some point, not sure I could get them clean enough still on the car. Next up will be the differential then the floors under rear seat, inner tunnel area, etc. I did find two stripes ( greenish yellow and white ) on the drive shaft and hoping to find some markings still on the differential.  :)

This is a San Jose car, not NJ. The reinforcement plate is a satin black and no lighter than the black out paint. Very durable as no scrapes appeared in it from cleaning whatsoever. Does look like it caught a speed bump or something on the edge at some time in its life. Picture may have it a bit blown out.

Sorry messed up the plant = must have had NJ in my head since I just posted a thread on a 66 NJ car

Thanks for the confirmation on the convertible plate

I did a cleaning on the differential and did find several markings. The black paint on the axle tubes did not survive the cleaning process well so I repainted them with satin black urethane. No where near as durable as the floors paint. The marking on the bottom was damaged and I canít tell what it really is well.

Next the floors under the rear seat.

That's about right the floor was shot with a epoxy base as we understand it so it would be allot tougher.  Turning our well and you're finding allot of details
