I'll take some pics of my '68 and post them. I'd like to replace these on mine, so I'm curious about your fitment issues.
Come to think of it, I bet your 68 uses these bent tack strips. The website ways it is for a 67-68 and I'm pretty sure it uses the same top also. There is probably just a slight difference in the shape of the body right there.I'll take some pics of my '68 and post them.

I think those are called the snap well trim.OK I'm not sure if these are pics of the right parts. I thought we were talking about the trim around the convertible top well? It looks like only 2 pieces on my car. I've never been able to figure out how to get these off either.
I figured out I just needed to drill another hole and bend the tack strip to fit the inside of my well. It was pretty easy.Tough issue.
Mine is a '66 and I had a local experienced shop do my new top so I'm not much help here. :-/ Sorry.
Thanks! Those tack strips were tricky. It seems like you can't buy the exact fit, but I made them work by drilling and bending.Hey, 67ImpalaSSConv. I am the proud owner of a 67 vert. Let me know if you need any pics going forward and I'd be happy to oblige.
New Guy,Well we don't get much convertible action on this site, but figured I'd try my luck here. Posted on another forum as well.
While I'm at it, who here does have a 67 vert? I know of one or two guys on the other forum, but one has not been online much lately. The other guy I don't think has been working on his top yet so probably doesn't have all the answers to my questions!!
Anyway, when I bought this project car, it came with a new rear tack strips, sometimes called trim sticks.
The short extension pieces it came with do not seem correct. They are curved too much and also have 3 holes. There are only 2 holes in my car body and it curves back towards the outside instead of down like these strips.
My strips came as the 3 piece set and seem identical to this set for sale. The long rear strip fits and all holes match perfectly. It also had a tag that said 67-68 Impala attached to it. So I'm either missing something or there is a variation on the 67 that isn't accounted for on this set for sale, or the set I have.
Wondering if anyone has any idea here? I might be able to bend these back and drill another hole to match my 2nd hole on the body. But I'm also curious what I am missing before I do any cutting and bending.
