Here you go, check out this link: http://www.camarosandclassics.com/Me...ovaArmRestKits It looks like quite a few GM cars from 68 to 72 (Camaro, Firebird, Nova, Monte Carlo) used the same front arm rests. It looks like only the Chevelle and Nova used the same rear arm rests. Any time you're looking for old interior parts, Google "Vintage........interior parts" ( the dots refer to whatever car you're looking for) and you'll hit pay dirt.

Also try car part.com...Buick Olds and Pontiac used that body style back in the day so you may find what you need there..

68-74 4door Novas should all share the same rear armrests.

That would be true, possibly for the front armrests, but the rear armrests are specific to the 68 to 72 models.

rear armrests

yeah, i believe that is true. Because the rear armrests enclose the door handle. ive looked at some similar year chevelles and they are just the armrest with the ashtray. no opening for the door handle.
