Some of the other gm A bodies had a longer trim piece by about 2" used on the side, I think gto and either GS or 442 as one is the same as the chevelle. These two cars used 4 clips on the outer side of the sail panel, thus 12 clips in all.

That second set illustrated may or may not work? I wonder if it is for a later year.
