Anyone know what this is? Part of a basket case car, it is entirely possible that it doesn't belong to the car, lots of odd stuff we think the (odd) prior owner may have collected from swap meets.
Car is 1966 Impala convertible. We were thinking part of the convertible top somehow.

There are two of them, mirror images of each other.

Quarter window trim? I think at the top front of the quarter panel.

If you mean the part above the door striker, no there is a U Jamb seal there I guess it's called. Not for that. I am thinking it might be related to the convertible top, more like on the sides in back? Sure can't find it anywhere in any parts books.

I sent the pics to Leigh Scott, his answer: "Looks like the rear convertible seal at the hinge pivot although it looks like it’s been cut."

Thanks much for that, wondering if he can be a little specific on where it fits. I understand for the convertible so somewhere back near the top well, would it be more on top, or more like in the trunk area? I will see if I can dig up something online too. I don't see anything glaringly wrong like a part of it sawed off, looks complete.

Check assembly manual on the reference section above under C05.

Unless I am missing it somewhere, C05 is the folding top (option) and isn't illustrated. Unless it's in the regular assembly manual and I am missing it somehow.

Look in the Fisher Body manual also. I looked and do not see anything. I have had my '66 convertible apart from one end to the other and do not recall anything like that.

Thanks. If you don't remember anything like it, that's useful information too. Car, as I have said before, maybe not on this thread though, was bought as a basketcase, parts all over the garage where he bought it. Plus prior owner had bought meaningless crap at swap meets, wiper arms galore, 4 door trim, etc etc. So it's hard separating out what is original or even correct for the car and what is junk. AND not only that but we have had to buy stuff that was missing and really specific to the car. Try finding the column shift indicator window for a 66 TH400, or the center dash vent for factory AC, we have a couple of each of those (now...), but how do those end up missing? Thanks for letting me "vent", LOL.

I had to use one of th400 tilt columns for one of my cars I bought after the previous owner threw the original th400 non tilt column away and put an SS floorshift column in and a ratchet shifter(which didn't work well with bench seat). My latest project needs a 400 column too and again I will have use a tilt 400 column I have.

We were (I guess) lucky that the TH400 column was there, just the window was gone. It was pretty junky though, got sa PG column and made one good column out of it. The TH400 detent (plate?) was in great shape.
