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...

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?!?!?!

:lol:

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.
