Softseal works well for most everything. Metro makes a softer door seal which you won't have to break-in. I use Softseal on everything and it took a year or so for the door seals to allow the door to close with 2 fingers.

Re: 1966 chevelle weatherstripping

Years ago Softseal seemed not so soft so I switched to Metro. Nice stuff and I was happy with it but a few years ago a customer bought a Softseal kit for his car and brought it to me to use on his car. Much to my surprise it was a lot softer than they used to be so I've been using Softseal ever since. You can't go wrong with either but I would lean toward Softseal.
