    I would doubt they are the original molds based on the differences I can see. Did GM own any of the tooling or was it their contractors?

    Original tools were owned and run by Inland Fisher-Guide (division of GM), pretty sure here in Dayton. The guy that started Trim Parts I believe worked at Inland and had access to the original tools. If true, that’s as original as you can get. My belief is that by now the tools have probably received some maintenance refurbishment so perhaps some details are slightly different from when they ran 50 years ago.

    Only wish people stamping metal could do the work Trim Parts does.

    I think Trim Parts really cares about their products and reputation. I'm sure if they did start making sheet metal, the other vendors would just give up.
    I used their front and rear side markers and found them completely satisfactory with no issues.

    Whether they are completely like the originals. Just nice to have another confirmation.
