Gents,

Im new to the 71-73 series Mustang and per other threads have just picked up a 72 Mach1.

I noticed this bracket in the trunk on the drivers side and is screwed to the lip on the left.

Any ideas what it may be for?

Per another thread, it seems the car has had a UHF radio installed under the dash. Could it be related? Or is this a bracket for the jack?

Nothing stock Ford. My guess is it's a bracket for whatever aftermarket equipment was installed in the car during it's lifetime. 

Jack mounting bracket is welded to the trunk floor on the passenger side.

Thanks guys. Its an odd bracket. Looks like it had a ground wire attached at some point. May be part of the UHF Set up.
