  • Body / Glass: 1964 Daytona Trim

    Hi everyone,

    I am going to be putting the side mouldings on my 64 Daytona soon. I'm trying to figure the sides the mouldings go on. My dad had a stack of them all together from various parts cars. I can't seem to tell the difference in any of them. E..g drivers side door compared to passenger side door.

    Unless I have a stack of 3 identicle ones but i doubt that.

    Does anyone know how to tell the difference between sides?

    All of the side trim on a ‘64 Daytona is arched, none of it is straight. Look down the length of the trim pieces and you should be able to figure out which ones are for each side.

        Do you mean arched where the middle is higher than the ends?

        4 door Daytona Rear Doors are the only place Straight Mouldings were used and reversible.

        The way to check is, look them up in the Studebaker Body Parts Catalog, a common L to R Part has a Qty. (2) and Right Hand Parts end in a Even Number, Left end in Odd numbers.

        It matters whether you have a Daytona 2 Door Hardtop
        /Convertible, 4 Door Sedan, or Wagonaire.

          If curved inward wouldn't that make them swappable from left to right as profile would be the same on either side?

          I looked up the part number and the rear door mouldings aren't interchangeable unless I miss read it. 1360922 is right rear door and 1360923 is left rear door. Ser attached pic of parts manual.

          What I'm doing is putting the used moidings down on a long flat surface and seeing if I can see the arch at the bottom if the middle is raised and the two ends are touching. It's a very subtle arch but who knows If what I'm doing to determine is right. Haha

            Correct. Compare the trim to the photoshopped horizontal white line.

                  FWIW.... every 64' ragtop that I have seen has bad driver's door mouldings. Not any other model. Look at the light blue pic above. That door mldg is looking upside down or they ran out of 2 dr. driver's pieces. Someone please show me a 64' ragtop driver's door with the correctly curved moulding.

                    Moldings have a small slot that is for inserting the retainer clips. Those slots are always on the bottom.
