I just have the Haynes repair manual at the moment and couldn’t find anything about the trim. I’ve removed the trim on 75 nova witch had clips that used a 90 degree pick to pull the clip and remove trim. I found the clips on the rear window of my 63 but when I go to try to pull them and get the trim off nothing happens and I don’t want to damage the trim
