    You are missing the tailgate cable retraction system There shoud be a wire spool in the fender which feeds a cable out to the tailgate. It is on a retraction wheel. It feeds through a metal formed grommet which fits the hole you are showing and then the cable attaches to a bellshaped fitting on the gate. Also you are missing the "chrome hoop" which engages your lock when you put the tail gate up. This pic is a little small but you can see the cable set up.

    Check out a 55,56,57 assembly manual. There should be diagrams in there.
