Courtesy/Reading Light on 65 GTO?

I just got through taking the interior out of my 65 GTO and I found an area under the sail panel that looks like a factory setup for a courtesy light or a reading light. I have looked in everything I can find and I have had no luck finding that this was an option. The area is on the left and the right and has factory made tabs and is tapped for screws. Does anyone know what this area is for? I have included a picture and circled the area in question.

Thanks,
Dale

Never thought of that, that might be a really good idea.
