Wondering about the side trim on the 1965 Chevelle Malibu (Not SS)
I currently am restoring a '65 Malibu, unfortunately not an SS. I want to restore it as close to original as I can, but I do not like how the side trim looks on the Malibu. I know that the SS does not have the side trim, but I don't want to rebadge it as an SS because of originality. The car did not have the side trim on it when I purchased it, but it was in pretty bad shape, so it could have just fallen off or been removed prior to me getting it. However, it did get me thinking if there was a factory option to remove or exclude the side trim. Hopefully someone can help clear this up for me!
