    Pretty sure they do...just line new emblem pins to the holes and check fit.

    If your fenders are original non-Stage 455 fenders you are close. The original "455" had no pin behind the 4, and a thin bar between the 4 and the first 5, and they often broke there. I saw many "GS 55"s in the 80s. Newer NOS 455 emblems have a pin behind the 4, and a larger bar between the 4 and the 5, and GM added a little locating pin behind the additional material. So, if you have newer emblems you will need to drill a hole for the pin behind the 4, and may need to either 1) drill another hole for the pin between the 4 and 5, or 2) grind off the pin, or 3) cut out the bottom part of the bar between the 4 and 5 to look original and get rid of the additional pin. (This is what I did.)
