67-71 door panel without holes for arm-rest

I have a A 67-71 door panel without holes for arm-rest. Anyone have any ideas what the application would have been?

As far as I know, 67's did not have armrests. My factory original 67 does not...but I do not know if ALL 67's were like this....

Re: 67-71 door panel without holes for arm-rest

The 1967 sales brochure lists armrests for Custom cab interior, but not for Standard cab.

It appears that 1968 was the same way.

I've owned both 1967 and 1968 base model trucks, and neither of them had armrests.

The 1969 brochure has a photo of a door without an armrest. In 1970, armrests are listed under standard features.

I have a 67 GMC, Custom Cab.
It has armrests. It's news to me that they ever came without.

My 69 C/10 does not have holes for arm rests. It has the base interior with rubber floor mat and vinyl seat without shoulder strap seat belts. I'd like to add arm rests.

I believe that you could delet the passenger armrest and visor in the early years. I looked at a 67 with no passenger sunviser.

My base model 67 had no passenger sunvisor and no passenger side mirror.

Re: 67-71 door panel without holes for arm-rest

My 67 is very plain, not a Custom or CST...
Came with a 283 and a glide, HD rear coil springs, ammeter, side trim a foam seat (which was NOT in it when I bought it in 2002) and.............believe it or not, this stripper pickup came with.....factory AC!!!
It has one sun visor only, NO armrests.

My 68 1/2 ton Golden is a Custom, has both armrests and sun visors

Re: 67-71 door panel without holes for arm-rest

Armrests on '67s were a custom option. They were a different style from the '68-'71. On a Standard truck, [ not ''Custom'' or ''DeLuxe''] the Door Panels were not pierced for armrest bolts.
I put a junkyard find armrest on the Drivers Side door of my '67 K/10 Suburban. [Didn't find a matching one.] Some ''expert'' saw it and said ''Oh! You have the very rare Model Year 1967 Armrest.'' ''Just lucky, I guess'', I said. ''Why not on the right door?'' ''Oh, they were optional, like passenger side visors,'' I lied.
Didn't have the heart to tell him it was found in the mud of a junkyard, and they let me have it for a Buck. No clue of the source. '48 to '58 Olds sedan, maybe?
