In one of Scott’s (Qcode351) Saturday morning garage videos, he found a VIN stamped on the inside upper portion of his firewall. His was a 72 - I’m not certain if this location would apply across all years but it would not surprise me if there are additional hidden stamping in addition to the apron ones.
Link to the post and video - hope this works
That's not a partial VIN, it's a panel identification stamping. I screenshotted the video and it's pretty clear that it says "D1ZB65", which means it's a 71-up Mustang panel, for hardtop and in this case, sportsroof. The convertible firewall is different and would be stamped D1ZB76.
You'll find these stampings all over every car. Here's some stamps from a 71 sportsroof I own.
