Default Whos the best, weatherstripping?

A friend of mine would like to know who offers the highest quality and factory fit of rubber weatherstripping.
He is working on a 1965 GTO.

I was thinking SoffSeal but I need the experts on this site to chime in.

Thank you, Chris.

Hey Joe,

You have a source for all the GM weatherstripping from the 60s ?

Haven't tried them myself, but have been hearing positive reviews about Fairchild Industries weatherstrips. I'd be interested in comments. The fit seems to vary greatly on the type of vehicle.

One local guy got the weatherstrips from Fairchild and he's satisfied.

I used the OER Latex on the doors and roof. Pretty pricey but I'm pleased with the look and feel of this stuff. Much softer that other repops I've seen...
