Is the rear quarter piece different between the standard and pony interiors in a '66 coupe? I've seen pictures with and without an armrest (I'm sure it wasn't a convertible). Various vendors sell conversion kits that include the quarter upholstery so I'm guessing it is applied on the standard piece. Any clarification appreciated.

To the best of my knowledge, in 65 & 66 coupes, the rear quarter was the same in a pony interior as it was in the standard coupe interior(as far as the shape). The convertables were the only ones with the arm rest. I could be wrong, but all of my books show it that way, and from my memory of car shows, they were also as I stated.

Good luck,
John Thomas

I thought so too. But then I saw the photos here:
I'm pretty sure it's a coupe. It has an armrest.

There's a coupe on ebay, #570594639 that has some real good pictures, and it shows no armrest. I don't think it even has upholstery on the quarter

the rear interior quarters on a pony interior coupe are made from a plastic material like the moulded pieces on a convertible. the main difference is in the area the the top most front corner. On a pony interior coupe, there is a metal finisher piece there and the area does not curve around where the pinch on windlace fits up under. somebody has to have a picture of this.

Great! Thanks guys. So, will the upholstery and chrome cap fit on a standard quarter? The adds selling conversion kits don't mention anything that implies any modifications are needed.
