Torino Pillar Seals

PLA torino seals and body plugs

Who we are


Who we are Who we are
We are Gran Torino owners who have been searching for new pillar seals and body plugs to actually fit our car. We own a machine shop and thought why not expand and make a product that we could use on our 1976 Gran Torino, 2 door hardtop and our 1972 Gran Torino sport fastback.  They had old deteriorating pillar seals and body seals. We couldn't find them anywhere.

We have been restoring Gran Torino's for seventeen years and we have never found a decent pair of pillar seals. Now with the introduction of 3D printing we decided to make them for ourselves and make them available to the rest of the  Gran Torino owners. These are not restored seals. These are brand new 3D printed pillar seals. These should fit other 1972 Gran Torino sport fastbacks and 1974-1976 Gran Torino 2 door hardtops.

If there are any other impossible to find parts we would consider 3D printing or machining them if there is enough interest.

3D printed pillar seals and body plugs.

These aren't the original rubber pillar seals that were put on the cars when they were built. These are PLA plastic, Polyactic acid, not PVC.They are slightly flexible and reasonably UV resistant. They fit on our 1976 S&H 2 door hardtop and our 1972 Gran Torino Sport Fastback. We have installed them on our cars, for two years now, and they look and work great! We don't worry about the UV resistance because they are behind closed doors. They were originally named QUARTER LATCH PILLAR SEALS. Our seals replace the original pillar seals with the number D20B-6528183-AA

Below is a picture of the body plug that covers the 1 7/8 hole below the pillar seal. The outside diameter is 2 1/2, which is slightly oversize. The body plugs are made from flexible 3D printed material. The price for a pair of body plugs is $19.95, which includes tax and S&H. We have tried ordering these plugs from two different catalogs. They didn't fit like the original ones. They are just a little too small. So..try ours instead.
