A tougher challenge for you... trim identify

Recommended Posts

I think this might be a tougher challenge for you, but with the knowledge on here... probably not!  I typed in the number on the back (403095) and the only results I came up with is a guy on eBay selling two of these. He says Oldsmobile Cutlass but does not know the exact application. I used that as a search, but found no results. They almost look like "hood louver" vent trim or some sort of lower vent fender trim?  Any ideas? 

 

Thanks again for your assistance.  I bought these over 20 years ago, and now don't remember what they were for.

Don't think this is the correct answer, but it reminds me of Lincoln Mark V fender vent trim. Some had the chrome edge on the vents and some vents were just painted body color.1978 lincoln mark v 4

I think you are both on the right track, but these are much smaller than the guesses.  I should have stated they measure 4 7/8" long and the chrome portion is only a 1/4" wide.  I was also thinking along the lines of tail light trim?  Some similar to the '66 GTO.  These are not GTO, though.

Thanks for the input so far!

This morning looking on ebay, I ran across this car for sale and now have identified this trim.  Rear quarter Pontiac Firebird (1967-68).  I sort of remember now from back when I bought it.  BTW, I do not know who's car this is...just stumbled found it looking possible projects.

Thanks for everyone who posted their input!  Happy New Year!

JK,

         I'm not sure about this. I own a 1968 Firebird and had to double check after seeing your last post. Although they do look similar I think that application is not correct. The Firebird louvers are slightly curved where yours look absolutely straight. The black painted part of your trim seem to extrude where the Firebird trim is on a single plane. Also, the part numbers are very different.

I am very certain these are from a '69 Olds Delta 88 - fender side moldings.

Bleach,

 

I'm sure you are correct. I posted JK's images on another site I use and they came back almost instantly as 1969 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royale. There is a set currently listed for sale on eBay

 

Best,

 

Greg

I looked at the set on eBay and the eBay trim has the same part number as mine (and profile). I believe we now have the mystery positively solved! 

Thank you for everyone's input and photos!! 

 

Happy New Year!
