If anyone has a photo of one of these I would like to see it. I have a vinyl top parts car and the A pillar is simply covered in Vinyl.

GM made these A pillar trim pieces out of metal with a vinyl grain etched in them to match the vinyl tops that were installed. So any vehicle that had a full vinyl top or a front half vinyl top like Lagunas would have these style trim pieces. Here's an example of them from my 75 Laguna. The 76 I have also has the same trim.

Thanks for the photos! I've seen them mentioned before, and then looking at the seam on my A pillar I'd wonder if I was missing something. So now my question in, do non Vinyl top cars have a seam near the top of the A pillar that is not filled and finished? I recently figured out that my 73 had a vinyl top.

Yes, from all the A-bodies I've seen they all have that seam where the trim connects to the roofline.

Here is what I did to my car. I used the ones for the non vinyl roof and filled them in with body filler and then painted on the look of the vinyl roof cars. simulated metal pillar trim for vinyl top 24b31a10

And it looks flawless in person. You would never know it was a separate piece.

Correction, The trim pieces I have are for the Sport Roof Option with Louvers, the trim piece that divides the rear painted area, from the front part vinyl. I have a stainless one and a textured one. Thank You Limey for posting those for me.
