    Door sill plate question

    I have seen some door sill plates plain ( no logo) and others have a metal logo. What years had the logo plate and what years didn`t. I know part numbers changed a couple times.

    F was plain ribbed. The plastic covers with logo were 80 up M-body.

    I have the ribbed plain and also the ones that are aluminum with the logo. I will take a pic if I can find where I put them. Thanks

    These are what I have on the Aspen. Really can't remember what the originals looked like anymore. I don't think they had the "CHRYSLER" plate. They were half corroded away and are long gone, along with my memory. These were the only NOS ones I found at the time.

    That is them. I wonder what they originally came on or were they a newer superseded part number? I know the part number changed a few times. The originals all seemed to be the plain ribbed.

    I have some of those tucked away somewhere too. Later still they had a black plastic overlay on upper trim levels.

    It is possible the ones with the name plate never came on any car when new. Cannot say that for sure though. Assembly line parts and dealer replacement parts aren't necessarily the same. Up until 2012, I worked in service at dealers, Ford for 21 years and then Audi for 5 years (unfortunately) and saw many times where the replacement parts were different. In some cases to replace one part, required also replacing another part (or parts) or replacing pairs so they matched. Some were due to redesign to fix a flawed, failure prone part and others seemed to be "just because".
