Already contacted him, didn't have one readily available but because of the odd shape, shipping might be pricey.

I might go this route

NEW 94-96 IMPALA SS CAPRICE TRIPLE A PILLER GAUGE POD - Turbo 6 Performance

looks like it is the whole pillar and not just an overlay. I have gauges I want to mount and with a broken tab I don't want to put any stress on the remaining one with the extra weight (plus it sags)

If it popped off in the pillar, you can reweld it to the trim piece with a soldering iron. You may have to add some material, or at least reshape the material that is there. You asked me for a gray pillar. I said that I only had other colors. The gray ones are hard to find.

OP if you can't repair yours as Fred notes (JB Weld is also a way to secure the clip) you can use any color A pillar trim and paint it with SEM. I used their primer then the grey spray paint

That is what I did when I got a A pillar from Fred when I added a pillar gauge as I did not want to drill my stock Grey one incase I ever wanted to delete the oil pressure gauge I installed
