View Full Version : Is this the correct molding clip for my '67 500?

I have one end of my body trim that I discovered has no clip at the end near the rear bumper on the passenger side. It seems to be attached with some super strong double sided tape. I have not worked up the courage to pull the trim off, fearing that more clips might be missing. But the one above is the only one that I can find that seems to be for body moldings on a 67 Coronet. Since they are over 5 US a piece, not including shipping to me in Finland, I thought I would ask first.

That does look correct Tek, check out your other post on FBBO. Be careful taking the trim off, some clips are screwed on from the back, others slide on nail head like pins, and still others use a plastic rivet that you have to push out the center from the inside. Take your time.

Thanks mate. Do you have any idea how many I need? I kind of don't want to take them off during the 'high' season of car shows here, but would like to purchase them so I can change them in September. From past experience if I order now, it will still take 4 or so weeks to get to me! Incredible I know!

If you order from RT Specialties, they will be able to tell you how many are needed.

I only wish. This might sound dumb but attending that show is a dream I have.

It's not that far fetched, I met a guy from Finland a couple of years ago. He was eye balling my red car because he was just starting a resto on his gtx. We had a great conversation.

Well I go to the US all the time, except it's either for business or never at the time any car shows are on..For the record, I'm an Aussie, I just live in Finland.

I am going to make it to one of the major car shows at some point. And I will be announcing it on all the forums. It would be surreal to catch up with folks that I have come to know on these boards. ;)

Don't know if you got an answer, but I just looked at mine and those seem to be the right ones. I was curious as to where you are getting these from.

My plastic 67 500 side trim clips came from RT Specialties. I don't know if there are any other sources.

Yeah I have worked that out too. Pity they can name their price on these little suckas!
