If I'm not mistaken, this would be the material to reline the window run 
channel on the window side of the vent window divider bar.  If your problem 
is bad Vent Window Main Seals (that go around the glass) or the vent window 
divider bar seal. (the vertical piece of rubber that the vertical edge of 
the vent window closes on) , which is the short seal on the vent window side 
of the bar.....

It's possible that the Main seals and divider seals either are not made by 
Steele Rubber, or it's possible also that even though Steele may make them 
here in the US, Clark's may be having them made outside the country at a 
lower price.  After spending 7 years selling Steele Rubber seals, I can 
assure you that seals not made in the USA are beset with quality issues. 
Give Clark's a call and ask them if they get them from Steele or from 
somewhere else (Soffseal or Metro Molded).  Those 2 retailers have much of 
their manufacturing done in China.

Sorry for your troubles---I have Soffseal  roof rail seals in my LM Monza 
and they aren't worth a crap.  Made in China for Soffseal, Sold by Steele.

Best Regards

Can anyone clarify what this item is for me?
(C196A<http://www.corvair.com/user-cgi/search.cgi?part=C196A>)  We've
learned that the source of the water getting into Missy's 61 coupe is the
admittedly terrible vent window rubber and when I looked up the
weatherstrips I saw this listed below them.
