They don't carry them. though their listed, its a discontinued item, so are the door weatherstripping. You'll have to make do with what they have for universal weatherstripping. I found that Steele Rubber products are good. Just try to match size and profile. I went with 90-3525-110 for my 68. I will be installing them in the next few weeks or so. Remind me and I'll send you a pic.

I'll join in on the fun. I too am looking for roof rail rubber for a 1969 2dr Hardtop. This stuff is like unobtanium. A question for those that know more about the Ford part number prefix: I have found other rubber with the same base part number of 6551222 but instead of the Thunderbird C9SZ prefix, I can usually find the Mustang C9ZZ, I think I've found Galaxie as well. What changes with the different prefix? Is it the entire profile of the weatherstrip or just the overall length?

I'm not sure, possibly just the length. I too found mustang for 67 or 68 fastback as they have a similar window as mine with no quarter window but I have not ordered any to try

Here's my update. I found beltline kits on Ebay being sold by Repop. I thought I had two viable leads on door weatherstrip, but both fell through including one at Lincoln Old Parts the day after they processed my order for $478 for 1 set (D&P). Now I need Roof Rail and Door Weatherstrip. I think I also need a Flux Capacitor as that's my best bet at getting parts.

I have the same problem with the roof rail weather strips for my 1961 2dr ht, no one has the parts nor do they have any idea when they will be avaliable.. I had previously bought a set that fit, but were complete garbage. The rubber was hard as a rock, so bad the door would not close. If anyone finds generic strips that work, please share the information.

Good, sorry forgot to send these! The self stick adhesive backing is strong! Don't mess up.
