Hey guys,

On this '52, I got one missing window. The front wing windows and the passenger side front window are cracked, but I can live with those for now. My problem is I can't put this car outside with all the rain we get with out that window! :( Does anyone have one? A little cracking would be ok, as if I take it to a show the windows will be down. Plus, this car has tinted glass, so having one with that would be awesome, but I can easily get over it if I can't.


Thanks!

Just have your local glass shop make it. It's cheap, quick and...well, it's quick and cheap. Just use the other side window as a template.

Hmm, good idea! I "think" there is a glass shop around here somewhere......

The only difference might be that the glass shops' modern flat glass is a bit slimmer than the old glass...might rattle in the channels sometimes?? Not a biggie

Have you checked to make sure it isn't fallen down inside the door? Believe me, you'd be surprised...

It looks like half of it is in the door :( I'll check again though. I really would like a original, since I just like originals, haha! But hey, beggars can't be choosers.

The correct thickness glass CAN be found at the right Shop Dylan.

So, I'm still in need of a window. I checked with a shop, and I'm not ready to plunk down the $$ they want for there windows. No doubt they are good, but I would rather keep searching for a original for a while longer. Anyone got a '51-52 4 door sedan drivers door window?

You mean you don't have one in stock sitting your front hall closet for him, Rich? :D

BTW: Unless the bottom channel where the regulator arm(s) attach is side-specific, a passenger side will also work. ;) (That increases your chances of finding one...)

Doh! Thanks for pointing out that obvious error, I appreciate it! Yes, the passenger side will work as well :D :D

I checked 12 used doors, and I have nothing in ;good' shape. I';d suggest Champparts.com in Idaho for the good stuff. Russ will hook you up if you tell him I sent you.
