Hi,

Yesterday I was lucky enough to find a 99% rust free 1968 here in
New Hampshire. Her windshield is cracked. Can anyone recommend a
source for these windshields besides eBay? I'm going to try to post a
few pictures for you. Thanks!-Mike

Sorry, having trouble posting pics...

Post subject: Old School Glass Shop... (Fri Jul 14, 2017 10:14 pm) Reply with quote

When I needed a new one for my '67 4 door Valiant I went to a local mom and pop Auto Glass place and they were able to get a new one out of Seattle and install it for me. National Chains like Speedy Glass, etc won't even bother FYI.

Wait....I didn't think old sailing ships in 1868 had windshields?!?!?!

Safelite had one last time I did it (2007), but don't know about now. Is it a 2dr hdtp, or 2dr/4dr sedan? Wshlds are different...

Any glass company should be able to get a windshield for an A Body through their jobber. Catalogs are full of replacement glass for these cars.

Like Dart 270 said; 4 door, 2 door post body glass size is different than hard top and convertible. I think the difference is 4 and 2 door post glass is taller by an inch or two.
