Molding question

Does anyone know what the difference is between the wheel well moldings from a 65 Impala 2 door to a 66 Impala two door?

I didn't think there was a difference. I did just buy a set for the 66 though.

The fitment is interchangeable between the '65 and '66, but the cross section profile is different between the two. The '65's have a wider more concave contour while the '66 has sort af a raised rib profile (hard to explain). '65's are hard to come by and not repoped as of yet (as far as I know).
