Looking for 1964 Chevelle Side Moldings

i was wondering if anyone could help me locate a complete set of body side moldings for my 1964 Chevelle...i believe its a 300 because these moldings run directly down the middle of the fenders, doors, and quarter panels..any help would be greatly appreciated...thanks.

I am also looking for a nice set of the same trim, mine is a 2 door wagon. I believe the coupe trim would work as well.

Re: Looking for 1964 Chevelle Side Moldings

There was a poster/thread not too long ago, the team member made his own. I myself am missing 2 on the left side and 3 on the right side for my 64 4 door wagon ( takes 4 each side). Its either finding some originals (which is tough), making my own (or making something work), or filling the holes and eliminate them altogether. I saw a pair (not complete set) a few weeks ago on ebay. I have not even started on this wagon so not too concerned now but that gives me many years to look for some used ones -wish me luck.

Those side moldings were also used on the Malibu Sport Coupe in '64. Very hard to find in decent shape.

If your Chevelle is a "post" model then it is a 300, if it is a hardtop then it is a Sport Coupe. Personally, I prefer the looks of the Sport Coupe over the SS model as the side molding kind of breaks up the mass of the side of the body.

I prefer no side molding just looks sleaker IMO.

Re: Looking for 1964 Chevelle Side Moldings

Darn near impossible to find. I bought 50 bucks worth of aluminum alloy bar stock, and machined my own with a 30 year old craftsman router table and a HF speed controller.

Attached them with 3M trim tape. They turned out nice and they cover up those damn holes!

Re: Looking for 1964 Chevelle Side Moldings

Yeah i was talking about you above. How did you get the bend in? Where the quarter downslopes around, underneath, the door handle. This is a good option. Looks good.

Re: Looking for 1964 Chevelle Side Moldings

Thanks, fellas. Those bends were hard to do, but I just eyeballed them and bent them by hand. It was trial and error, bending little at a time. That alloy is pretty soft, so you don't have to be Charles Atlas, but it wouldn't hurt I suppose.

Funny!! Some of these young bucks on here are probably wondering who the hell Charles Atlas is. You're giving your age away! LOL
