 This weekend I'll get pictures of the grill, hardware and a closer shot of the speaker magnet with the printing.
I'll see if I can match the hardware with an AMK number (example: retaining nuts) because I don't see it listed in the 67 AIM.

I took more pictures of the speaker, grill, hardware and wiring route. Based on my findings of the rear deck with the grill off I am changing my earlier comments about being knock-outs to now being hand cut. Unfortunately, I was not able to match the screw, nut/washer or wire clip to any AMK hardware. The wire routing exits the right side of the trunk, down the right side rocker channel within a protective plastic loom along the rocker length and exits top of the kick panel, travels under the glove box in parallel with the antenna wire (and is also under the antenna wire retainer clips) and then exits and plugs into the fader control harness as shown in 67AIM U80/A2 view B.
I hope these pictures help. If you need further closeups let me know.

Wow, terrific additional photos Mike.  Thanks for going to the trouble.  Does the car have two package trays in back, one on top of the other?  It looks that way in the top photo.

Funny you ask that, Jon. I was thinking of that last night when laying in bed. I'm going to look further into this. I suspect the piece under the shelf is the one that has the jute like backing attached to it.

The edges on the bottom board appear "cleaner" to me, and it does look like one tray atop another.  But I have a convertible so not well versed on these  :)

Mike, thank you for all the detail on the pathway and hardware for the rear speaker. I couldn't find that detail anywhere I looked. This is extremely helpful, appreciate all the time and effort you put in to adding to this topic. Much appreciated, answered every question I had.

 Using my fingers was able to raise the top shelf a little to examine closer. This is for certain, the top shelf has no backing under it and the underlying shelf has the thin jute like backing glued to it. I examined the vinyl edge that folds over behind the rear seat and it is glued to the frame and I only see one flap. The shelf with the backing has a much cleaner punch for the speaker compared to the obvious hand cut on top of it.
  Did LOS use a separate shelf with the backing glued to it perhaps?
