When looking directly at the engine the temp switch and the temp sender are at the front of the engine to the right of the distributor. The temp gauge sender is the one closest to the carburetor. With regards to the deck lid medallion/lock cover you may need to go NOS (new old stock ) if you can't locate a junk yard car with one. The part number is X269CXX the last two x's would normally be the two letters of the paint code as these were colour keyed to the car.
You'll need to drill out the rivets holding it in place and re-attach with a similar "Pop" rivet.
