I picked up a set of good, used door sill plates from a local shop for a decent price. Upon clean-up, the backside of the plates show A5 401L and A5 401R. Could be a part number but a quick search on internet revealed darn near nothing.

I grabbed these up years ago from cars going to crusher. The full set is actually 3 pieces, the sill plate, a suff plate near lower door hinge and one scuff that covers lower corner on interior of door. I put a complete set on my 74. So this is what I have left. Then thereís the NOS stuff I canít remember where it came from and it looks older like 60s.

They were still making this stuff into the early 70s Iím sure because the ones I salvaged all came from them. I also remember seeing them available from J C Whip me. 😀
