Hi All!
I'm getting my 65 Biscayne 2dr finished up. It's in paint now. Been trying to find new stainless windshield surrounds (front and rear) and drip rail moldings as well. All kinds of stuff available for the Impalas and even Caprice, nothing for the Biscayne that I can find. All the drop downs say the Impala surrounds won't fit the Biscayne. Do any of the GM A body surrounds work on the Biscayne? Anyone know where I can get re-pop moldings for the windshields and gutters?

The windshield and back windows, which are anodized aluminum, will fit a Bel Air post 2 door and 4 door and an Impala post 4 door.
The drip mouldings will fit any post 2 door or 4 door.

The above will not fit any convertible or hard top models.

1966 and 1967 also will fit. or any Pontiac or olds ** will fit if from a post model.

Forgive my confusion, but you don't mention the Biscayne model, which is what I have and it is a 2 door post. So, are you saying the windshield moldings (front and rear) for the 65, 66 or 67 Bel Air, 2 or 4 door post, or an Impala 4 door post will fit my Biscayne? And that the drip moldings from either car will fit the Biscayne? Again, sorry to be so specific, but I want to get it right. Thanks for your help!

Yes, the models mentioned will fit a Biscayne.

If the Impala and Bel Air bodies have a feature, such as a stud, for attaching the mouldings, your Biscayne will be lacking this feature.

Thank you sir! Finding parts for this Chev is proving much harder than it was for the last car I built, a 69 Mach 1.

Hate to correct the expert, lol, but these Moldings are Stainless Steel. I have some available in used if you are still looking for some.
