    Roy nailed it. Phillips Auto Glass has them as well as other SDC vendors. There should be a vendors list attached to the home page.

    Go to Home Page, then click resources, then click other resources and scroll down to vendors. Good luck.

    Prices for a windshield for a 53 to 64 c/k usually hover around $300.00 at Studebaker vendors. Regular glass shops have quoted me prices over $600.00.

    Can anyone confirm that Phillips is still in business?

    Yes. You're looking for a DW306.

    Is that price from the regular glass shop an 'installed' price~?
