I believe rear fender trim is different on '50 88s and '50 98s, but the only way to know for sure is to consult a parts book. I don't have one that covers 1950.

Just acquired a Trim Master Catalogue #451 yesterday...in trying to help I have discovered that "Trim" is all that stuff on the inside of the car! Moulding is what I think you are looking for on the outside of the car.

98 and 88 are different - not interchangeable. A very hard part to find for 88's even in rough shape.

The moulding you are looking for carries GM part number 4582091 , and it fits all 1950 76 & 88 2 doors .

Pat McMillan AKA deadds had " tons of mouldings " on this thread ;

Try posting that number there . He might just have one .

Try Bill Ehrsam in Sylvania Ohio, or Franklin Graf in Westfield Center, Ohio. Either guy might let one go, but brace yourself for sticker shock, even for a less then presentable piece. Contact info for both is found on the OCA and NAOC club roster and adviser lists. Good luck ~
