Studebaker International has it.

...but it is NOS and pretty toasted. I bought one and if I knew how crispy it was I would have figured out a work around.

There was a "work around" article in the Turning Wheels a million (really about 25) years ago.
Those with the electronic index may be able to find it.
It was a good "how to" that covered running the drains clear outside of the rockers and quarters, and using generic weatherseal.
The idea is to limit the leakage to the point that the gutters and drains can keep it off your shoulders.

Congratulations Ray, I hope the car is great. One thing to ensure is that the drainage from the roof leaves the body of the car. Seem to recall that collected water stayed inside the fenders without a drain, if so probably a good idea to install some.

I used one of Kurt's kits on my Wagonaire. Everything fit nicely! Thanks Kurt.

For the rear window. One channel does attach to the roof section for the window to close into.
