Is the windshield trim from a 69 Olds F85 the same as our Beaumonts?


I found a 69 Olds getting parted out and was wondering if the windshield trim is the same as the Beaumonts.  I think they consider them an A body.  Also is the power steering box the same.  At a quick glance it looked like it.

I don't have my books handy but A body should be A body on both items as far as I've ever seen.

I think the sedans & wagons share the same trim between divisions; coupes and convertibles share different trim between divisions. Also the molding at the base of the windshield is different trim for non-hidden wiper cars for say a Chevelle 300 Deluxe or base Beaumont Deluxe.

The steering box would bolt in, and would be the same unless it was a 442, and then it would be a quick ratio box. Still a bolt in, but nicer! :)
I can look up the part numbers of the Cutlass trim if someone else can look up the same Beaumont trim to compare.

So the numbers for a 69 Beaumont 2 door hardtop are top 7726034, sides 7725634, 7725635, bottom is 7731088 or 7759008. Do they have recessed wipers?

Well, I wouldn't have believed it, but they are the same according to20160814_205138.jpg the parts book!

Interesting. May have to make a trip out there this week. They looked real nice and they don't take up much space to store until someone needs them.
