What is the name of the trim part on convertibles that is C shaped, has the male part of a snap, and the convertible top boot attaches to it. I believe is is made of stainless steel. Thanks

Convertible well moulding or boot moulding.
I spell it moulding as opposed to that fuzzy, toxic kind of molding.
Are you looking for the GM parts catalog name, or how it would be identified on an NOS packaged example though?
You can buy restoration male snaps that rivet on like original, but the special rivet tool is expensive, you'd want to rent it unless you're in the restoration business.

Guys, Thanks for the info. The link was very helpful. I was under the impression (wrongly)that 65-70 Convertible Parts were all the same. But now know that the Pinch Weld Molding is different between the 65 and 66 which tells me I need one for a 66. Thanks Again!!!

1965 is one style, 1966 is a second style, 1967-68 is a third style, and 1969-70 is a fourth style.

Both spellings are correct when discussing the nown.
