Were the A pillars simply painted or covered with something off the production line? Mine look not so good and need a refresh.
In my '66, they are painted as Magnus describes , but the trim piece at the top is pained to match. I do not know which would be correct.I'm pretty sure the 65/66 pillars are just painted the same color as the dash with a little chrome trim piece up where the headliner ends.
This is the trim you seek. Ford did not chrome plate them.In my '66, they are painted as Magnus describes , but the trim piece at the top is pained to match. I do not know which would be correct.
- Just checked online and found that NPD only lists one trim and it is listed as a '65-'66 fastback part.
They were intended to be standard, but went away as stocks were depleted as a cost saving after the strike.1964 1/2, 1965 and 1966 just had Painted "A" Pillars....
Somewhere in mid-1967, Ford went to "Padded" A-Pillars... but they only lasted a year....They were gone by Mid 1968... and I'm not 100% on this, but they may have only been installed in "Deluxe" interior cars....but others will chime in..
