61 fleetwood rear window moulding
« on: November 28, 2015, 07:38:38 AM »
Hi All,

have asked this before but with the new site trying my luck, I'm looking for a rear window moulding for a 61 Fleetwood.
If any one has some leads as to where I might be able to find one would be greatly appreciated

cheers in advance

You may want to open up your search a little bit.

61 and 62 Fleetwoods use the same painted thin steel molding.  Most from those years have rusted through.  I have found one only twice.

63 and 64 Fleetwoods have the same size window but had a stainless steel trim.  These seem to be the trims that a lot of salvage yards are pulling and saving.  A quick google image search for 61 Fleetwoods you will find a lot of "Restored" cars using the stainless trim.

it was weird that Cadillac used a painted metal trim on these years
I guess they wanted the molding to be invisible
well it worked,becasue 50 some yrs later most are invisible!

great info if the 63 -64 ones work
