 You are correct Carl my bad I am after the chrome mouldings. These were removed before I purchased the car including the wheel arch mouldings and I would like to put them back on as part of the restoration 

Thanks

If nobody can help you with the trim I know I can help with wheel arches in the spring when I can get to my favourite wrecking yard. I have to check if US models use the same rocker trim as your car.

That would be a big challenge getting the long rocker mouldings safely down under. They definitely don't like to be bent. But I suppose one could put them in a threaded end PVC tube?

 That is what I was thinking as well a pvc tube and I could possibly get it all  put in a container in LA to ship to Australia

I took the long rocker panel moldings off a 68 Parisienne convertible about a dozen years ago, and sold them to someone here. I left the rear fender moldings (from the wheel opening to the rear bumper) on the car. I then needed the ;pmg rocker panel moldings for my 70 Parisienne, and got some off a 69 Parisienne from The Tin Man. The 70 moldings were aluminum, but the 69 moldings, like the 68 were stainless. I can't speak to 67, but you're ok with 68 or 69 long moldings. You'll need all the clips to mount them though.

Re the wheel opening moldings, it's been shown above the fronts are the same as 67. Re the rears, I believe 67 & 68 are the same, but come in multiple pieces. Hopefully someone can verify that from the parts books.

A Parisienne 4 door hardtop like Mavros has is a 764 39.

When you look for a rocker moulding, there's one in the picture, item #20. In the data, group 8.231, it fits all body styles of Parisienne, 2+2 and Grande Parisienne wagon. Also I see it fits some 67 models.

I couldn't find 68 online yet but 67 US full size models all use that number it appears, so I think you are safe to say 67-68 US and Canadian models Peter.
