Not sure about the fourth one, but one should go from the frame to the inner fender on the passenger side, just in front of the radiator as you look over it from the front, you should see the hole in the frame for the bolt. and the other two go from the last bolt on the bottom side of your valve covers to the fire wall.

The 4th one is when an AM/FM radio was ordered. It goes from the frame to the lower firewall near the body mount on the driver side.

There are pics of this in the 1966 assembly manual if you have one.
