A lot of these trim clips interchange between different platforms/generations/models.
I just bought a set of moulding clips for my 80 Malibu. They came from Amazon. I haven’t tried them as I’m still polishing the moulding.

Metal clip is for the 68-72 A. Plastic for the G Body.

Angled slot is same and the length to the top is very close. (Plastic one is a little low so you can see the clip below.

Just did this on the 79 and some of the pins were much shorter than the others the metal clips were easier to get on.

Gotta say, theres no way those metal clips would have worked on my car. I had to trim the lower part of the clips. Some more than others. The channel was clean. No sealer to get in the way. To be honest I was surprised that they needed to be modified.

Wondering if you needed GM 20169887 same as the Auveco 12135.

From what I can tell the 20169887 is 11/16" tall and the 9731301 is 3/4" tall.
