If we are guessing then my input is a fan. bigger, center hole was for the wiring. I dont know of anything dealer installed in that area.

If you installed three point seat belts, you’ll recognize the bigger center hole. The pop rivet gives it away! There is a threaded backing plate that is being held in place with that pop rivet until the seat belt in bolted in place.

I have no idea what the other two holes are for. Probably made before the seatbelts were installed.

EDIT: I like DES57’s guess, fire extinguisher mount, prior to the seatbelts!

Thought I'd add an ending to my original post. I just got done painting the interior back to the original color for a 59 "Comanche Gold" . Purchased the paint from Jim Carters. A quart was enough to paint the entire interior, doors & all, but I almost ran out. Thanks again for everyone's input. I get so much help on stovebolt forums, I love it!
