Is there a tool to remove the drip rail trim on a 65 coupe
The round end of a churchkey, bottle opener, not the pointy end.http://www.mustangmonthly.com/howto/14158/index.html
And it comes off very easily so don't over do it. Just release the strip from the door side of the sill and then manually pull it of of the other side.
I can usually get them loose with this plastic tool I got from a glass guy. A sturdy wooden paint mixing stick works too. Either of those are less likely to cause damage than a metal tool, but a metal tool may be required if they are stuck bad. In that case I normally reach for a butter knife. I dig the bottle opener idea, never heard that one!
Yup, bottle opener works great for this. Use plasti-dip on the end, or wrap in tape to protect your molding. All you need to do is use the bottle cap "catch" to gently pry the molding off the lip of the drip rail...IMHO the real fun is putting it back on! LOLMark

And to think how many years I pushed that bottle opener out of the way in my tool box looking for a good trim removal tool!
