Is this trim aftermarket?

    Hey everybody,
    My '72 Riviera has the usual metal trim down either side. It also has this rubber trim over the top (pictures attached.) Was that a standard Buick option, or dealer fitted option, or is it entirely aftermarket.

    I would prefer to remove it all as I believe the metal underneath will look better but did not want to do that if there is some important reason it is there.

    I believe that is factory stock on the Riveria.

    Ah ok, I will have to check out some pics online. It seems odd that it is short in places. I know it can shrink but it is more than shrinkage I think. Perhaps it was changed at some point and for a repro part.
