    What year vc's? Grommets were different thru the years I believe.
    67 had white plastic clips that snapped into the finned part.

      Those are 67's. Looks like @txas2step has a 65 according to his avatar so he would need the individual ones. Please let us know which ones you need.

                Dang link wont work on my phone. I see its Year None. Only and only reason I would ever buy from them is if no-one else sells it (M&H harness)
                After speaking to them about Interior door panels, I will invest zero time n money in them

                    Well, that's what they are...... $6/$7 each anywhere that sells them...X 8 = $48/$56 a set. I bought mine for $25 for 8 of them years ago.

                    Guess it depends how correct you want to be.

                      Thanks, but I am looking for those white grommets to use as inexpensive replacements for the 1964-65 273 wires.
