'67 GTO stainless vs anodized door molding

Had a discussion with a fellow club mbr about door reveal moldings. He said the molding for a convertible was stainless while that for a HT or Coupe was anodized. Checked in the Ames catalogue and sure enough that's what they have. So question is does anyone know why Pontiac would use 2 diff materials for the same pcs?

On an early LeMans or GTO convert, Pontiac designers wanted a continuous look of stainless steel on the door reveal moldings butting up next to the stainless pinch weld trim. On LeMans and GTO hardtops & two door Coupes, and even on the seldom seen LeMans 4 door hardtops, anodized aluminum trim sufficed for the reveal moldings (and was cheaper to originally produce)

As usual, right on the money. The pinch weld trim is around the back window tub area of the ragtop. I like the stainless a lot more than the anodized.....it holds up better over LONG periods of time!
