Went through the same thing with a '76 Monte with a white interior, the A post covers literally disintegrated and if I found a set they wanted $$$ for them. I believe they do repop those for the '78 and up but not for my '76. Find an old wrecking yard with lots of trees and look for a G-body of the same vintage with a black interior preferably in the shade. The trim in it will probably be faded at worst, just do the fingernail test to make sure it hasn't started to break down. It seems the black holds up to UV rays a lot better than white or other colors. Then just paint with vinyl paint the color you want. I grabbed 2 pair and an arm load of other interior trim at a local yard for $6, I handed the guy a 10 and told him to keep the change.
