I removed the trim a bit but didn’t take it completely off. I can see the clip and the screw, it’s not rusted but in those videos I see the clips practically rest against the the top of the body, where mine had a larger gap, not sure how I would bend it back in position, it would suck if I have to remove the window for the one clip, I’ll have to look into it moreFirst the molding needs to be gently removed before assessing what the issue is.
1965 did have screw in clips and yes you do need to remove the windshield to actually replace them. However, perhaps the clip isn't rusted out and is just bent or maybe the molding just isn't aligned or is bent a little where it contacts the clip.

I was able to pop up the chrome a bit to remove the screw and the clip. The chrome I think is original. Is there a difference in the 65 clips I can order aftermarket at say cjpony? I thought I read somewhere that aftermarket clips won’t work if the chrome is original.Maybe the original hole was stripped out and instead of welding it and redrilling in the same spot they redrilled it in an incorrect location. Take the top trim off completely and compare the clip location to the others for the top trim.
You won't be able to bend it if it's location is off from where it should be. I had meant that if it was bent during installation that it might be able to be bent back into proper shape.
