NEW rear door armrests for 65-66 four doors!
Posted by: 66vairman ()

Clark's does not sell reproduction arm rests (The lower plastic part with the chrome like finish) for the 65-66 rear doors on the four door models.

After some research I discovered the same armrest was used on the ChevyII/Nova four door cars.

Made by OER the RH side is OER # 4493312 and the LH side is OER # 4493313.
NOTE this is ONLY the base, does not include the ash tray or arm rest pad.

Classic Industries (Calif.) and Summit Racing carry the parts. [www.summitracing.com]

The ash trays are also available. Classic Industries is out of stock on the arm rest pad.

O.K. Al - a lot of pictures. You've got a front door arm rest, Summit and OER are the for the rear and the same, but for different sides (RH vs. LH) and photo at different angles.

The Parts Place unit is the same one Clark's sells for 68 rear four doors, not the same as 65-66. Not sure what was used on the 67 four door, maybe the same as 65-66.

Here is the RH part from Classic industries - again a different view, BUT THE SAME PART. I took my old plastic 66 four door rear arm rest and compared it to the one I bought at Classic - exact.
See Classic part RH-- [www.classicindustries.com]

Make sure they fit. Their 68-69 arm rests did not!

Corvair 4 door arm rests are the same for '65-7, only three years of production. They had a left hand and a right hand (mirror image of left). The top didn't have that ribbing as shown on Al's parts Place posting.

A great find, once we get the vendors' products all sorted out!

Mark, Al, thanks for pointing out the ribbing shown in the photos. My '66 rear door arm rests (Clark's replated) are smooth on top and there's only about 1/4" of exposed top between the arm rest and door panel.

I wonder if the other vendor's parts are smooth on top? In Corvairs, that ribbed surface is an early-model thing.

Wow this post went off the tracks --- LOL.

For the LAST TIME --- YES the OER parts I mentioned are the SAME FIT AND SHAPE AS THE ONES I TOOK OFF MY 66 FOUR DOOR. They are for the REAR DOORS on a four door LM. NOT THE FRONT, NOT THE EM FOUR DOORS, ETC.

I bought mine at Classic Industries and Summit has the same OER part numbers and, at least to me, the pictures at Summit and Classic depict the SAME part - just at different angles. At Classic Industries if you click on the image it opens other views.

Ribbed rear arm rest is 64 and earlier WHICH CLARK'S SELLS AND SHOWS IN THEIR CATALOG.

--- as a wise man once said here "I wonder why I bother to post here".
