Nope.

 

Not from a '64 Impala, but it is GM.  The other side should look pretty much the same, but I'll check tomorrow.

AMT 62 Tempest

 

The chrome tree is completely different, but they do look like the same side pipes, so I guess I'll give it to you.  The part in my photo is from a '61 Tempest.

Ok, thanks. I don't have a tree from the 61 ;)

 

Here's the next one:

I hope you can see it. Part is white plastic unpainted, just a little dusty.

No. More american ;)

 

Hint:

This is not a stock part. When the model is finished the part can be seen at the outside. It is not hidden under or inside the model (like a hinge or axle).

Looks like it might be a roof light bar for a police/emergency type vehicle.

It is no tow bar stuff and no roof light equipment. But Steve is getting nearer.

I get the hint "more American", thinking it must be AMC or Jeep.

No, that was unintended ;) But I use it as a hint:

It is not from an AMC (or Jeep, Rambler, Nash, Hudson, etc.)
