Pulling the vinyl top off my 84 Cutlass. I have side windows but what rear window chrome interchanges. Found some on eBay but say Cutlass 4 door but didn't know if that would work for my 2 door. Will Gran Prix or Monte fit a Cutlass.
Any help is appreciated thanks

You will need a coupe set of rear trim. Sedan is different. G Bodies used a 3 piece set or a 5 piece set depending on year and model. If you notch the corners of your trunk filler panel you can use the 3 piece set. Or go 5 piece. Check Ebay for them.

Depending on how the trunk to window filler panel mounts at the window base you might be able to use a '82-'88 Monte set up. This is the three piece set up. It could be possible that the filler panel is the same except the nails for the retaining clips for the top. I found out the Montes & Cutlass' are very simular cause I got trim & filler clips/stands off a '84 Cutlass for my '81 (five piece/four sided set up.)

Not sure on interchangeability of G Body trunk/window filler panels. If losing the vinyl you will obviously have clip studs to remove. I believe there are 4 or 5 versions of the trunk filler panels used from 78-88. If anyone has access to GM parts look up the #s could be checked. Might be cool to have an interchangeability list for the filler panels. Trunk filler panels for cars with the 5 pc window trim have a full length notch that the outer edge of the bottom window trim fits into. The plastic clips for the bottom left and right horizontal mouldings are available in repro. Cars with the 3 piece window trim have the inside ends of the filler panel notched so the vertical side trim extend thru the panel. Those left and right vertical side mouldings for the 3 piece sets can be trimmed at bottom to use on cars with 5 piece window trim. Top horizontal trim is the same for all 78-88 G Body coupes except Malibu and Camino.

For the '81 Monte Carlo (A37) "Panel, Compartment Front" p/n 20171486 interchanges with Cutlass (A47/G47) '81-'88, Regal (A47) '81.
