My 65 came with QA1's. They have a bracket that bolts to the axle.

I also assume at the top, a kit supplied brace/mount was used to beef up the upper shock mount, or there is a support bar that acts as a crossmember that the coilovers attach to at the top.

The factory upper shock mounts were not designed to carry the weight of the car like the factory springs do. The metal is not very thick and there is no additional plating to support/stiffen things up. They can easily be overstressed and the metal will crack or break.
