The one in the middle, might be a shield where the upper control arm goes through the inner fender?

Flap on the bottom of the tail light housing to seal to the bumper.

I am thinking the larger one with 4 holes is the senior tail light version of a dust shield that fills the open space where the bumper extensions wrap around. Is the smaller one a broken off piece of the other side?

They look like they could be a gasket or seal that fits to the bottom of the Senior V8 tail light housings.

Thanks everyone! That makes sense as the brake lights would have been removed for painting, but reattached for driving from the paint shop.

Howard I think they're actually the same size, the picture is just at a weird angle. Though one or both are in a bit rough shape.

I think this will be the last one for now... anyone know what these are? 55 400, but I found another pair also with a 56 Patrician so likely would be for both.

Owners manual for scale

Thanks! Not at the car now but it sounds very plausible. I doubt they are an interior part.
