Underbody Holes Near Steering Gear???


Does anyone know what the two red circled holes below are for?
Are they for power steering brackets/cylinder or something?

I'm running good ol' fenderwell headers and need to relocate the prop valve somewhere out of the headers way.
I like this spot and there's already two holes I can fab up a bracket to bolt the porp valve to chassis with.

That's a headscratcher.....

I looked at my 65 and I don't think they've ever been used on it.

I don't think so unless maybe for a 3 speed "bolt action". I converted mine to a four speed and there's no sign of it needing those holes.

Well I couldn't wait... I fabbed a bracket for it. 
No power steering, bolt action 3 speed or 4 on the floor for this car so should be OK.

Nope.no

The cross shaft ball mount is located above the frame rail of the front clip and close to the steering box.

As to what these two holes are for...confuse

Maybe for the slave cylinder mount ('62-'67 Acadian and Chevy II) when the car comes equipped with power steering ?? that is my best guess.

Perhaps they were used for some sort of jig during assembly.
