68 Pontiac Full Size - looking for vertical trim piece for beside front license plate


Gang, attached is a photo of the front valance of a 68 Pontiac Parisienne.   Beside the license plate were 2 vertical pieces.  They clamp around the valance on the top, and screw onto the lower front of the valance.    I've only got one, but you can see on the left side of the photo where one was (the paint is shinier there).  I'm looking for another one.

Can anyone help me out?

You may be able to make it from a thin piece of metal than spray paint it with metallic paint. use the other one for the curve shape.

It seems like it was an optional trim piece as a couple 68 owners I've contacted don't have this trim on their cars.

I had never seen this trim.

Has to be rare.

NOT ALL '68'S WILL HAVE THEM, IT WAS AN OPTION. MY GRANDE PARISIENNE HAS THEM AND WERE LISTED ON THE GM DOCS., MY PARISIENNE DID NOT.

 Just curious, what are they called on your GM docs?

Was at Flatla Auto Wrecking today but struck out when looking for another guard. I checked out the 68 Safari Estate wagon and Grande Parisienne, but neither was equipped with this option. He then told me of a 68 Laurentian, and while I found it's valance in the rear seat, it too didn't have this elusive option. Bummer.

Thought I'd bring this post up again. Anyone have a spare licence plate guard for a 68 B-body?

I'm pretty sure that my 68 Catalina did not have these trims but I still have the front valence. I'll be going to the storage garage this coming week  I will check to verify if I have the part, and will let you know.
