Red face 68 Impala Arm Rests

Need some help locating some arm rests and backing plates for my 68. I have brought the replacement parts
from Classic Industries to find I had the four door arm rests No Good for my ride ......
It appears to me they don't do them for two door sports coupes or I haven't found them yet, second hand
would be fine. The current arm rests for one reason or another have been changed out at some stage and fitted with arm rests
from a different model pretty obvious from the pictures below you can see the outline of where the originals once were
The picture of the blue one are the type I'm after maybe someone could measure theirs so I have a better idea on what I'm looking for?

Freight from the US to my place is expensive so I don't wish to make that mistake again...... I do have a US shipping address if it helps



So any help in locating arm rests Left & right much appreciated gold or green best but any color will do I'm sure upholstery paint would fix

Mine are junk too. It's crazy they are readily available for four door cars but not two. I read somewhere on the Chevelle forum that a guy was making them out of billet and selling them on eBay, but the post was really old and I was unable to find them anywhere. Try Desert Valley but I'm not sure how well those will hold up in the sun and heat and also watch eBay. Good luck.

I found them from Restoration Parts Source, p/n 7755938 for the right and 7755939 for the left. They only come in black, but OER makes a good plastic dye in several colors.

Thanks CI & Allanrose22! for the help and links I've moved the 4 door items on, its expensive shipping from New Zealand to the US
and vice versa so not really cost effective to return thanks for the offer the correct parts are now in my cart .......

Hubbards

Hubbards has both the arm rest and the semi chrome plate that goes under the armrest.
