Rear Hood Molding Question

I have a 1970 El Camino,I'm looking for this part of the rear hood molding that's on the fender .I have it on the passenger side but I'm missing the drivers,I know this part is not available from the aftermarket so I guess going to have to look for a used one.My question is since Chevelle and El Camino fenders are different is this trim piece also different between the two.I don't want to buy one from a Chevelle only to find out it won't fit my El Camino.
Thanks

Dean,
The 1970 - 1972 Chevelle, El camino & the Monte Carlo all take the same top fender chrome.
I can look tomorrow and see if I have an extra one at the shop.
caminonut is online now

Re: Rear Hood Molding Question

They are available aftermarket I don't want someone that needs a set confused by this posting.
.They aren't listed with the hood molding they are separated and listed with the fenders but They are available.
Just in case "Caminonut" doesn't find one of them they are available.
They are called fender top moldings with rubber seals and they are available from SS396.com as I just looked them up.They're probably available from the other places too.
They're $ 19.95 for the set but you would be best off with a set of real Chevy pieces from Caminonut

$19.95 they dropped their price for some reason.

Over the past 15 years or so, I have not seen one single aftermarket part for my '68 el Camino SS that fits right or looks "exactly" like an OE part. Now when I need anything, I will always hunt down an original part and be happy I did without getting frustrated.

That is the way to go, if there is any chance to get genuine GM parts that are NOS then grab them.I know these kind of parts were available from parts direct for quite some time in the early 2000's but by around 09 or 10 they were done.

I agree most of the time you are right but I bought NOS emblems and later bought Trim Parts USA made emblems because the NOS were only ok and the repops are much nicer. As time goes on parts are improving thankfully as NOS especially for 68 are near to impossible to find without paying highway robbery prices.
