I should clarify. The front door panels and the rear hatch use buttons. All the other panels, including the cargo doors, use the screw/washer combo.

they started the door pulls in place of two of the clips early in the 66 model year. Very early 66s did not use them.
This is Lance's 66, which is a pretty awesome unrestored truck.

I think the outer roof trim strips used a slightly longer screw than the other places.

oh, if your front doors take those door pulls, they use the places of two of the button snaps.
They are screwed on, and there are these little clips that should be in place first, before the door panel goes on.
They go in those square holes at the top

and if there are extra holes in the door, tap them flat with a hammer and punch. if they poke out that will make the door panel not lay flat.

So some '66's didn't have flipper handles when they went to pulls?
