  • 1964 to 66 Windshield question ..

    I bought a windshield for a 1964 Daytona long time ago and I'm wondering if it fits all models 64 to 66 ??
    For some reason I keep thinking that this windshield came out of a wagon .. Not sure if it is or not but
    would like to know .. Thanks ..
    Love my Lark

      Yes the '64 Sedan and Hardtop W/S fits all of the same, on '65 & '66 Models.

      Also the '64 Wagon, Wagonaire and Convertible Windshields are also ALL Model '63 Lark Windshields, these "wrap" more at the Top and are taller than Sedans.

        So what are the measurements so I can measure this windshield ?
        I will sell it if its for a wagon or convertible but keep it if its for a sedan or hardtop .

          You could measure your Sedan/Hardtop and compare it to the loose one.

                As a point of interest..., I was looking for a sedan windshield and wound up getting two from Bob Peterson. Turns out they were convertible/wagon windshields. It was just the last 1-1/2" or so across the top that was about 1/2" high (mostly as it swooped to the corner). Since he needed one too he cut the corner, I believe with just an angle grinder and an abrasive disc. He then set out to doing the same for my two telling me that if they broke/cracked there would be no charge. Turns out all three were cut without damage. The ends were a bit coarse when I got them but the glass was soft and sandpaper smoothed that over.

                So, I can't say the glass wouldn't break but given that there were six corners cut without breakage there is at least hopeful. I tell you this because when I called Phillips Glass about a year ago and inquired about the 64-66 sedan windshield I was told they had ONE left. I then inquired if they would be getting anymore and the woman said, "Not likely." While a number of people have stated that the windshields are readily available I had found them extremely limited (and potentially diminishing). Also, not sure how far you are from a source but it was going to cost me roughly $550+ to get one to the west coast.

                  Thanks for the info .. I don't have any sedans/hardtops for those years but with how much I like them I might end up with one .. SO if it was for a wagon or convertible I would sell it to someone in need as I have little interest in them ..
