If you're talking about the curly long trim piece those are the same for all 59s right? The trunk piece is a bonneville/star chief only piece. They shouldn't be too tough to find

No I need the trim that connects to the curly piece that goes down the side, and the one on the trunk lid is star chief only, bonnevilles have the word where the star would be, I can't find any star chiefs or anything 2 door I just keep finding wagons, vistas, and 4 doors

LBGalaxyman.....Steve at Indiana Pontiacs seems to have 1 Starchief 2-door sedan in his inventory. Those side pieces are specific to your car. He has a couple other 1959 Starchiefs for the rear emblem though. Google "Indiana Pontiacs." Also try Steve at Pontiac Heaven. Anything you find will probably need some refinish work, but what's a little pick and file and polishing?.....John

Be prepared to pay an arm and a leg from Steve. If he pays $500 for a whole car, then he tries to resell each piece for $500. I've tried to buy so many things from him but IMO his prices are about triple what you would find on ebay.

Not to mention the one time he was going to charge me just to look through his cars to find the piece he may or may not have. No thanks, I'll pass

Ya I know about the guy at Indiana pontiacs he sold me the trim off the 2 door star chief I paid 500 and had to email him back since he only sent me half of the shit, then all of the trim wasn't there I'm missing the long piece down the quarter that goes into the hook I'm super pissed, the star chief scripts that go on the quarter where broken when he sent it... I'm really pissed at that, there is also a other guy to watch out for and that's Tom Gardner in bend Oregon, he is over priced as hell and won't pay shit. He offered me 300 bucks for a 1964 Pontiac Grand Prix 4 speed tri-power car with a posi the car was rotted and need work but ran and drove just fine, I drove it to work about 26 miles each way daily and yet he had the balls to tell me that he was going to take the consol and sell that alone for a grand, not to mention the rest of the parts he could have made alot of money off of. I sell parts that I get for just a little more then what I paid to cover gas and the cost of the item. I just sold a rust/dent free spare hood and trunk for my 64 for 250 and it comes with all the chrome/trim and letters and I paid 150 so I make 100 bucks extra yet others like Steve and Tom want 300 for a FENDER!! jeez

LBGalaxyman.....I did some research. I thought that it was strange that Pontiac would have made a car that required trim mouldings that couldn't be interchanged with other models. Looking at the Master Parts Catalog, I found that the Bonneville Sports Coupe and Convertible shared the basic quarter panel stamping with the Starchief Sports Sedan. The quarter panel sweepspear moulding is also the same for all three. This gives you potentially 39195 other cars to find that piece.

Surprised that you had problems with Indiana Pontiacs. I only purchased two items from him; a hood emblem and a front swaybar. Both were reasonably priced, and in good condition. Took him a while to get them shipped, but he only does this as a part time business......John

I haven't checked out steve in Arizona, but as for Indiana pontiacs I was pissed at how they broke the emblems and sent me everything I needed but that one piece, it's good to know that I have a few more options when it comes to trim now I'm going to check it out and see if the yards around here have any 2 door bonnevilles
