Default Help with Trim (68 Cadillac)

So I will soon be looking at replacing a few missing/broken pieces on my 68 Miller-Meteor.

I have a broken grill molding and I found a molding for a 68 Deville, but I was not sure if the Devilles and the Fleetwoods were interchangeable. It looks right, but I want to be sure before I jump in and get a part I cant use:

http://www.cadillacville.com/default..._moldings.html

Can anyone confirm if front trim from Devilles fit Fleetwoods or if they are slightly different?

I'm also going to need emblems for the side of the top (I think that its a cross or something according to google images)

Holy crap! Those prices are ridiculous! You are in the part of the country where you can still find that stuff in salvage yards. It should not be more that $25-$30 in a junk yard for those hood moldings. Everything form the dash-forward will be the same as a Fleetwood or deVille as far as trim is concerned.

Check with the yard on North Yale in Tulsa. They might have it.

There is also an all-Cadillac salvage yard in the Olahoma City area. I have forgotten the name of the place, but Steve Loftin will know it. If you are unable to locate those hood moldings close to home, I do know where there are several '68 Cadillacs in salvage yards up my way.

Bruce,
That could very well be. I purchased it on eBay and the seller didn't know where it was from.

I'm going to go out to North Yale Auto soon, the completion of my repairs keep getting delayed so I'm hoping to have the hearse back in my possession today
