Default Useless founds under the seats & carpet...

With the garage finished and Ruth in, Iīm am trying to fix small thing just about every night. It is realy fun to finally get to work with the car, but I keep it to small stuff so I can drive whenever it is sunshine.
Detent plate and selector arm as well as my renovated steering wheel is in! Horn works and it looks awesome!
New headlamp switch also and other light problems fixed as well.
While crawling up & down to replace the lightswitch, I kind of figured out that it would be more convenient if I remove the drivers seat , and while I was on it, all seats vent out This gave me the oportunity to have a look under the carpet as well, and even if what I saw was quite sad, I guess that was the best thing I could do, as it was very wet under it, on booth sides where the feets are located
So now, a dryer is working overtime to dry everything, and thatīs a good feeling anyway, as there would be nowhere for the water to go if I havenīt pull up the carpet.
Anyway, while under everything, I did my best to chase these identification labels you all talk about all the time
But as mine interior is changed somewhere between Vixom & Gothenburg, during these + 50 years, there was no luck....
But I did found a few thing.
How about a little package of Howard Johnsonīs toothpicks?
Or a "Valuable Coupon"? Not bad eeay?
An broken piece of hard paper with a 8 in a rectangular box and something written with a pencil.
My guess about the numbered labels found in booth front and rear seat is that have something to do with the "new" upholstery. Or?.......

That "valueable coupon" would lead my to think that maybe that Bird went to at least one Drive-In theatre. Perhaps even a "StarLite Theatre".

One in one of the front seat and the other on the backseat, connected to the springs. But they only look metal. They are plastic....

I found a note on Philips 76 notepad-paper that said, "Where's the oil, Tim??"

No date, but I'd swear it was from the 60's to early 70's.

I found 2 earring backs, different types, under the passenger seat.

Nickels, pennies, etc. Wish I'd have found a 1960 coin. No way to know if it was 1960 when it was dropped, but I'd have swore it was.
