I believe those are custom made door panels. I don't think those are off the shelf items. Most door panels will be copies of originals with the scribing etc.

OER. Saw them at SEMA in 2016. Not the deluxe though and I asked why not the nice deluxe panels. They didn't have an answer. I can't speak for fit but on the display they looked like they should. Fully molded from the correct material not the vacuum formed junk.

We don't know that the panels you show are originals or OER's reproduction. Do we know if OER's are exact reproductions, meaning OEM parts will swap? That first picture is something GM never did, but is doable. That is the standard '72 Plain Jane panel someone drilled the holes and installed the stainless trim from the fancy scroll panels on. They fit perfectly. The question is whether they fit OER's. If so, that first picture could be either OEM or OER.

That second picture is so touched up (from a catalog?) it looks digital. Could be that is a reproduction. Hard to tell being so altered. I see it has a window switch rather than crank and don't see remains of the stamped circle pad for crank.

Third one is customized OEM most likely. Both the herringbone over the woodgrain panel and the sculpted upholstery on the lower area are one-off.

That's cool OER makes these. I wonder why they didn't do the scroll panels. The reverse of how seat covers are. LMC makes a crappy wannabe Pep Boys somewhat similar facimile, but no reproductions that I know of

Not sure where they came from but I believe they are stock. I have a pair like the first picture on my Blazer and a spare pair in the attic.
