Rolf, the picture you show is the package tray. The curved edge forward, from which hangs a weighted curtain. The far ends of that edge mount to the B pillars. At the center of this curved edge is a vertical wood support down to the floorboard, running about 4 inches? rearward where it meets the partition dividing the rumble from the front, behind the driver. At the center of that partition is a vetical metal support that mounts the spare tire.
The aft edge of the part in the picture is straight, and curves upward to mount at the rear underside of the deck at the edge of the folding top, and cradles the folded top when down.

For a much better explanation in detail and photographs of everything on your car, you really need the 1937 Ford Book available from the EFV8CA here:
