72 Drip rail?

I have a 72 Cutlass Supreme Holiday coupe, and I am looking for the chrome/stainless drip rail. I know I can get the A-pillar and escution pieces from Year-0ne, but they don't list the drip rail. They do show complete six piece kit but they don't say if it is for the coupe or the sedan. They way the wing windows are different shape from the coupe to the sedan, the kit can't fit both models.
Any suggestions on where I can find new drip rails? Thanks, Olds Man.

I know they don't repro them as they do for the others (pontiac, chevy and buick) as the three are the same and the olds is different. I did get a reconditioned set which look like new, but I was on a wait list for a year. BAP I believe is where I got them! Good luck!

I may have them. I'll have to dig around and see. If someone else doesn't come up with them by the weekend send me a reminder. John

You can find drip rails on the web quite easily and for very little coin. Pick up a set and have them professionally polished or do it yourself if you're handy at that sort of thing. I havent seen drip rails (new ones) for the supremes. As you say, they're now being made for the fastback. Fusicks sells theirs for around 140.00

Good luck with your project.

My bad, I thought they were reproducing them for 70-72 fastbacks, but it turns out they are only up to 68-69. The catalogue says the 70-72 fastback and supreme drip rails will be coming "soon". Whatever that means. Sorry for the earlier misinformation about repops for 70-72. Funny thing is they say the long roof section Drip Moldings for 1970-72 models are also available separately as a pair and to please inquire.

If you can come up with a set that aren't to beat up that would be great. Let me know how much you want for them.

I have a set of original stainless steel drip rails from a 71 Cutlass supreme for 150.00 shipped , No dings at all , they should clean up like new. Please dont buy any aftermarket tin. It is junk. You can scratch it with your finger nail. Original you can fix if you scratch it . I will send all 6 pieces. Despite what people say it is not easy at all to find good driprail on the web. The biggest problem is that people dont know how to remove it without trashing it The inner edge is usually beat up from people using screwdrivers and such to remove it. PM Me
