I don't think they used one on the flitesweep deck lids. The Chrysler 300s did not. Trim "ring" just butts up to itself. My 300F did not have one and others I looked at did not either.
Not trying to be contradictory but I see the word "moulding" in this list (but I don't know if that is metal or rubber):
No, that's the part number for the inner ring or insert.
1957 has a pie pan looking insert 1691 863
1958 has an inner ring 1860 767 and separate eagle emblem 1860 673
1959 had two different inner trims. (I do not have part numbers for these)
One is a combination of '58 pieces with an additional pie plate under the eagle
The other is a stamped one-piece unit similar to '57 but looks like other '59 design
The outer trim ring and joiner requested in this thread should be the same for all 3 years
This trunk trim is hard to find. I would never expect trim like any of the above to be sold at Collector Auto Supply
It would be surprising if even Frank Mitchell had this
Even finding used is a challenge as it's either missing, severely pitted or being sold with the whole deck lid
