Can you guys tell me what goes into the hole left of the light switch?

That amount of distance from the light switch is normally where a park brake warning lamp would be located. You could check for a white switch with a plunger on the park brake pedal. If your Mach1 is equipped with the Convenience Group option the park brake warning lamp would have been included. The option also included trunk light, glove compartment light, map light, under hood light, head lights on warning buzzer, automatic seat back release, under dash courtesy lights, and a glove box lock. If your vehicle has any of the items listed then it has the very desirable Convenience group option.

I have nothing there on my 73. Does it look factory or someone drilled it?

As Secluff stated, check to see if you have some of the convenience group options. Here is a pic of what goes in the hole you are missing. It lights up when the parking brake is pushed on. If your car did not have the convenience group option then your dash would not have this hole.

Maybe different on a 72 but my 71 has a belts light in that spot.

My 71 vert had a belt light too but I welded it up when I reprayed the dash.

In 71 the Deluxe seat belt option (standard on the vert) included a warning lamp that was also located on the left lower part of the dash. After 12/1/71 all 72/ Mustangs carried the Government mandated seat belt light/warning buzzer system with the warning lamp now located on the passenger side of the instrument panel.

Interesting that there are so much difference in where the seat belt light lived from year to year. On my 73 the seat belt light is on the passenger side.

It might be related to whether you had a clock on the passenger side or not, but even to find a parking brake like in that spot next to the light switch just seem like weird engineering change.

Perhaps just a where only the seat belt warning existed only for the driver side back in 1971.

Mine has the Convenience Group and it has a light there but I don't remember if it's for the belts or the parking brake. I think it's belts......

Thank you very much guys for all your responses...
My interior has been stripped by PO and I am missing lots of original equipment...
I do however have light under the hood....

Trunk lid has been replaced. I will eventually order Marty Report for it to find out if it did indeed have convenience group option.

By the way, it is 72 q code mach 1 car
