I'm still battling with this issue. My 63 Impala SS is a 2 door coupe. Looking at the reproduction Vent Window Stops available for the 63 and 64 Impalas they offer two. One is for the 2 door coupe, and one is for the convertible. The one on the right in the attached picture is from my car. The one on the left is supposed to be the repro for the coupe. The repro hole is in the wrong spot. BUT....the repro Vent Window Stop for the convertible appears to have the hole in just the right location. (See Pic) Although the shape looks slightly different. I've looked and looked and it seems that nobody is making the correct stop for the coupe. I tried drilling a new hole in the repro, but the metal is so flimsy it twists and bends when you try to tighten it. Anybody have a workable solution??


Coupe repro and original


Convertible Repro.

Thanks for the information. I checked with Steele Products and they don't have it. The one that you pointed out is not compatible with a 63 Impala.
