Well, it finally happened to me: my chrome guy lost a part of mine I sent him. Granted, it was small but I'm not happy. What he lost and I now need is the small chrome divider that goes on the door post between the front and rear door in the same line as the side moldings. I am posting a picture of the thing as well. It's about an inch or two. The piece I need is for the driver side. Thanks for any help.

Could anyone mention a few bone yards where there might still be some 56 Sedan DeVille's there?
My sources have all come up with nothing so far. Beginning to be a bit concerned. Thanks

Close but no cigar. I knew I had one of those but alas its for a Fleetwood. Picture included just so you dont end up buying the wrong one.

You're right, it's a one year, one model type part. Exactly the kind I wanted to come up missing!

Try Desert Valley Auto.  800 905-8024 or sales@dvap.com  Got some parts for my '56  from their yard in Casa Grande Az.

Good luck,
Tom

That is another good place to check, as well as French Lake auto parts. DVP's web site indicates they have your year and model in stock as a parts car but you would have to call to check for actual part availability. There is a place selling parts off of a '56 SDV on Ebay. I know this seller and believe he has the parts car. You could contact him and ask if he has that trim piece. Clay

Chuck, how frustrating!
Try Arnold’s in Paragould,Arkansas
+1 (870) 236-7253‬  Let the phone ring a little- he’s up in age but well worth the time and trouble. Great guy and may have what you need! Call him.
Good luck, Rich

I've tried Alvin and Rick Smith and just about every other reference I've had to no avail. I have a few confirmed other parts locations but are very expensive I thought. However, since I can't seem to find anyone else, I may be forced to bite the bullet. Thanks for the suggestions!
