Fellas---- I bought a 56 2 door wagon----a spare door window came with the sale
I took out the old glass and lined it up with the spare glass for comparison, and to my shock
they were not the same size---- like one inch or so difference
was this an old 4 door glass or something ? or from a 54 55 ?

thank you all

Some older Glass Shops will have the Pattern to cut a New door glass, or your cracked Original may be good enough to duplicate.

Was it the Height or Length that was different and which was Taller/Longer? Original or "Spare".

The 2 Door Sedans "F" Body, do not interchange with the 2 Door Wagons "D" Body.

Also the '54 and early '55's with the Straight Windshield, do not interchange with the Late '55 to '57 and '58 Scotsman 2 Door Wagon with the Wraparound Windshield.

The side glass should be flat. Just make a paper/cardboard pattern (I usually use 1/4" plywood) and any glass shop can make you one. Many have patterns for almost anything made aready, just call and ask. I got all six pieces of doorglass for my wagon made in TEMPERED glass not the old laminated stuff from a local glass shop for $200.

I've got a pile of Stude door glass; not sure what it's from but it's not C/K. If you know you dimentions it's free for the taking. May not be worth shipping though.
