I read that the side molding was standard equipment for the 1977 924. I have a 79 924 and it doesnt have it. Is it possible that as an option, porsche would remove the side molding for the car? I want to keep it factory, and if it was removed i want to replace it.

No, Its a little black strip that runs down the sides of the car.

I'm a firm believer in that just because it was factory doesn't necessarily mean it's worth keeping... but at the end of the day it's your car!

someone please confirm if this is correct:

the 924 SE or Le Mans only had these 'side moldings' on the door and it was a different looking part.

look at the 'side molding' on rkunk's 924SSE

looks like the "side-molding" piece is on the door and only partially extends to the fenders and the quarter panel.

I think only 944s had that type of molding and maybe the later 924S

I don't care for the thin black factory mouldings, but this coloured aftermarket version looked OK on my previously owned white car:

The thicker molding was on all SE cars. It was also on 944 and late 924s cars. The thin molding peels off of my 87 easily.
