Well my excitement on receiving my ebay purchased pillar post replacements quickly turned to disappointment. The pillar pads turned out to be of the metal variety rather than padded as my 68 came with. However they looked to in good shape so I had decided to be happy with them..Big problem..The 72 pillar trims don't fit the 68...Now I have 2 sets of pads I cant use..Expensive lesson learned..know what your buying and what fits. I'm learning that 68-72 isn't always a given..Do your homework.

Yes, its amazing how much stuff get lumped together as 68-69 or 68-72 when it it does not apply to all the years. Alot of times the seller will state which year it actually came off of in the description, but it seems they are the minority.

If there were other bidders, you might try stricking a deal with them to unload them and recover at least some of your loss, or try selling them here.

All the 68-72 convertibles used padded pillar covers, are they the same? I have a few pairs of them if needed.

I know the 2 door vs. 4 doors are different. One is a tad longer.

I don't think '72 was different.

That may be the deal Mr409. All I know is they're not quite right

I just looked at my supplier book and they
list 68-69 coupes --------part#xxxxx
68-69 el camino--------part#xxxxx
68-72 convertibles--------part#xxxxx

70-72 coupes arent listed.???

I may try to call them and see what the metal
pads I bought actually fit..I guess I'll relist them on ebay but I want to make certain of how to list them. I purchased them as "correct for 70-72 but should fit 68-69". It was not specified as convertible, coupe or 4 door. They are in good shape though so maybe I can recover some of my cash.
