My '54 C Coupe is missing the 3 piece front beltline trim around the wipers. I found good stainless sets on both a '55 station wagon and a sedan in the junkyard. I know the door trims don't match between C/K and sedan, but will the front sedan beltline trim interchange?

The Early '55 straight Windshield Sedan/Wagon Mouldings are closer to fitting than the Wraparound Windshield Late '55's, but NO the "C" Coupe Windshield is different, so the Mouldings are a NO fit. :(

If you get the whole Early '55 4 Door Sedan Stainless Steel Set from the Doors of a "W" Body Standard 4 dr. and the Windshield Mouldings in good shape I and others would buy them. ;)

If it helps, the pot metal trim is the same through the GT hawks so you don't have to limit the search. My experience is that the pot metal on the later cars has better quality plating and is not so crusty & pitted as the early parts.
