    I cant seem to find interior door pads for my 1968 polara convertible. Are there any other models that are the same size or would work? Or should I just make some?

    What exactly are you looking for? Armrest pads or door cards?

    If it's the arm rest pads, main thing to note is their length, plus the interior color. What about the chrome-ized bases they attach to?

    Looking for the door pads(cards?), not the arm rests, blue interior. Do the plymouth ones line up?

    I’ve got these from a ‘68 Newport convertible but they’re from a power window car. They’d be cheap.

    If you don't mind terribly Bob, snag me a pic and throw a ruler on it for scale when you have the time. I'd appreciate it.

    Mine are no good. Unless someone wants just the backings for a mold.

    I think you’d find that some other c body front door panels from a 68 will work for your car. My 66 Polara convertible didn’t have front door panels when I bought it. I found a pair from a Fury III at a swap meet and painted them to match my interior. I used spray paint and 6 years later they’re still holding up nicely.

    Now if you’re missing the back ones too, those are convertible only. Luckily, mine were still in the car and just needed to be painted.

    These may even work (for the front). You’d have to know the measurements of where the power window switches are and how big of a hole is there. You may be able to use the same hole for your crank windows.
