D/L the 67 Fisher body service manual Here & look in section 14, you'll see a couple of references to nails in the diagrams as in Fig.14-15 & 14-39. But as you'll see they would appear to sandwich the trim core with the point of the nail poking through the trim overlap. Bit hard to explain, the pic's do better.

I've never seen a panel disassembled, but I can't imagine they'd be messing with extra pieces of metal though, there's a possibility they would've had a hand tool that would indent or crimp them in place, but I guess you'd need to disassemble a panel to see.
Luckily those cups are super common, I think I bought a packet years ago from Summit with a bunch of other parts, I remember seeing those nails when I was searching and I also remember wondering where the hell they went, as i'd never seen any anywhere on the car, now I know.
