The belt trim  below the back window where the roof line meets the back cowl on my 63 is composed of Stainless steel strips and the corners are made of pot metal. The pot metal on mine are pretty badly pitted. Does anyone know if these corner pieces were made of stainless steel? If so where might i find them. See the picture of this Cadillac my father gave me before he passed away. I presently have it with a body shop in Northern California.

Can't wait to see it after a bucket of suds and a once over.

I know the long lower belt trim between the qtr is stainless and usually holds up well. I cannot remember if the corners are pot metal with chrome on the Series 62 Coupe. Yours looks corroded but hard to tell. I do have that long very rear piece, but believe I am out of the 1963/64 Series 62 Coupe rear qtr belt but will double check. Just fyi, this is different trim use don the Coupe de Ville which has a raised satin area instead of the double flat ridge seen on the series 62 as seen below:

I have the long strip that you show. But yes I need those corner pieces and yes mine have that satin finish with chrome along the edge. I presently have this baby in a body shop. I am also looking for tail light bezels that are not badly pitted etc.,

I checked but am out of the rear qtrs. Also out of the rear tail lamp escutcheons (bezels) but can put you down for these or any other parts on my Wait List. Just email me at jasonedge@nc.rr.com. I just put 2 really nice rear bezels in the hands of someone that had been on my Wait List.

I have some of the 63 tail light bezels.  email me at  russ85747@hotmail.com
