Yes "quarter pillar windlace" it is. NPD sell very good ones and are on page 49, part # 31290 of the current catalog. About $33.50 a pair. I used these without any problems.

My experience was that it was not windlace. Windlace was used up to the 70 model year as a binder on the headliner at the door opening and at the area pictured on your car. It is actually a rounded foam core with a vinyl covering attached to the qtr. trim panel. The windlace is a metal u-shaped inner channel with a vinyl covering. I could not find it reproduced so I obtained some black vinyl and had my upholstery guy sew it around a foam tube core and then re-attached to the qtr panel trim. Edge along the door opening. I will try and get a picture later tonight.

The type that NPD sells (which I used) is a metal core covered with vinyl. It is still called 'windlace'. The foam core stuff is not what is needed on this application.
Funny thing is, Windlace , as it's spelled in the catalog, is not in the dictionary and also comes up as a misspelled word here. Hmmm !

Stanglover I would still respectably disagree. I took eddyW's picture and blew it up. I assume this is still the original part and not replaced yet in his cars life. The picture to me shows the same cotton cord inner core. I do not think they used a foam core in the original, but my interior guy had a foam rod that was the same diameter so we used that. I am aware of the reproduction part you are referencing. I think I still have a pair somewhere. To me they did not duplicate the original enough so I went the path I took.

bkdunha, I just looked at my repo "windlace" and yes, it does contain either foam or some other material to pad it, so perhaps I gave the wrong impression. I know the edging you are referring to, it's used along sharp metal edges to finish it off neatly. The windlace is a draft-stop in this case, so it should have some softness, foam or a cotton material. I can't remember what was in my originals, didn't pay any attention to it as they were just plain ratty looking.
Sorry if I gave the wrong impression.
