Hi Guys,

I have an aussie delivered 64 belair, and wanted to fit the s/s trims shown in the pic. Can anyone advise exactly what they are called, and if they will in fact fit? Thanks

GM calls them "Reveal" Moldings.

And if your car is a Sedan (with posts), they will not fit.

They don't have to be modified, all you have to do is find a like styled bodied car with the Impala trim level, as the car you have. If yours is a 4 door post car, then you need them off of a 4 door post Impala. If yours has a painted molding where the Impala has polished stainless steel, then you remove the painted molding, and install the Impala molding. It isn't going to be a fast job, but it is doable if you have access to both cars, because there might be some hardware that you are going to need that is specific to the Impala model.

Never argue with an idiot. He'll drag you down to his level, then beat you with experience.

Hi Shaun.
The picture you have there looks to be impala trim ? You wanted SS trim? Correct me if I’m wrong but SS trim is wide and Just one strip down the side. Impala trim goes along wraps around at the rear quarter and comes back up to the front.
Correct me if I’m wrong again but SS were only two doors so you wouldn’t get that for your car. Impala trim came out in four door posts like yours and you can buy that aftermarket. Mind you if you have Belair holes in your car you’ll need to weld them up and drill new holes for impala trim.
Jason.

Junky is right. I checked and they were also on Impala 4-Dr Sedan cars as well. Both on '63's and '64's. I have a good set of 6 Moldings available if you are still looking for some.

That will make it even easier to install. Just drill the holes where they need to be and put in place. You might have to elongate a couple of the holes to get a correct fit, since it is almost impossible to get every one exactly where they need to be, unless you make a template first. I usually use masking tape, and mark, center punch, drill, and hope and pray that I get it right the first time, but usually one or more are slightly off. The factory had a jig that drilled all the holes at once, if they weren't already stamped into the metal first. I know that with the Corvair, the front fenders came stamped with the holes for each year, and model. This way, Chevrolet could sell more part numbers with the initial stocking orders that were shipped to the dealerships in advance of the new model introduction. That is the reason that there were so many NOS parts available in the 1980's, when so many dealerships were closing their doors, and liquidating the parts inventory.

The Front Doors are 2-piece. One separate Molding is under the Vent Window.
