Hi Vern;
I can't answer the question for you as I have always wondered that myself,
Even though my sedan does not have a different roof colour the dividers are on my car so I must have had different roof colour to body originally.
One of mine came off a long time ago and it was stuck on also.

7413278, shown from the back. Two of these clips are screwed to the pillar. The stripe sits on the top and is then pushed on at the bottom

No not available, the last time I did one of these I used a plastic clip and trimmed it down to suit.

All the later FC Special Sedans have the "C" pillar stainless or diecast divider regardless of whether they were painted two tone or not. Same goes for the divider strip under the tail-lights. It seems the fitting holes were part of the original body stamping process.

Gents ..
The stainless trims on C pillar on my car as I said were silicone on ,I have now removed the silicone and the paint back to bare metal ,and revealed there are two holes along the fitment line ,where obviously the original style clips ( no longer available ) Ken mentioned above would have fitted ..The Volvo ones I have are not suitable ,so I will make out of Chrysler ones I have which wont take much modifying and use same holes..The thin verticle trims under the tails lights ,I am sure have never been off the car ,and I straightened out the little tangs with much intrepidation ,removed and still intact ,hope they go back on as well..cheers Vern
By the way ..does any one know a wheel wright who makes wooden artillery style wheels as found on early 1900's trucks ..
