    Still working full time, so will not make it in May. We are tentatively going to make it to Tennessee.

    Windshields are available in clear, green and green with shade, the business coupe backs are available in clear, green and grey and they are tempered.

    Hope to help some of you to get your car back together and a smile on your face with this news.

    By the way, the prices are very reasonable.

    Russ,

    Are you coming to the Studebaker swap meeting in SB in May or the upcoming International meet, where people could pick up windshields in person and save shipping costs?

    Just asking, you know the frugal Studebaker clan...

    I ended up with a few used back glass when I got the inventory from Russ. I will look through them, and also look for the rubber seal.

    Does anyone know of a source for the rubber window moulding?

    You may not like the answer, but these are very hard to find. Find a 1958 Studebaker or Packard hardtop that is not worth much or is being parted out and buy the window or the entire car to get the window.

    The starlight coupe rear four piece glass set is the same from 47-52 and Champion to Commander. Even before the "Starlight coupe" name was adopted, the glass and rubber was/is still the same.

    Nah... I'm not too worried, I have seen Rich driving around in a '66 (CANADIAN built of course!) Cruiser. He obviously knows a high quality Studebaker when he sees one, I know he would not drive anything less...

    Good news for sure. Years ago when I inquired I believe none of the Studebaker sites listed the '64-66 sedan windshield. Someone recommended Phillips Glass. When I called the woman said they had, "ONE." When I asked if they were going to every get more her reply was, "Not likely." Thus every time I'd see a new '64-'66 sedan project pop up and the pictures showed a cracked windshield my heart would ache for the guy.

    Disclosure, CASO content below:

    Not for the fainted hearted..., but when I needed a '64 sedan (CANADIAN BUILT, BTW) windshield Bob Peterson had a few used '63/64 Convertible/Wagon windshields. Initially he thought they were '64 sedan but found out different when he tested them on his own car. He had a worker cut off the upper corners that he described as about 1" wide by 1/2" high. I think he just used an angle grinder and did six corners on three windshields. So, the '63/64 Convertible/Wagon windshields have been successfully altered to fit '64-66 sedans. I wouldn't recommend it on new glass but if you have some 'close, but not close enough' glass you can choose to take the risk. The glass I got did have course edges when my son delivered them but simple sand paper removed that and all was well.

    I'd think in a pinch you could use a '64-'66 sedan windshield in a convertible or wagon you would just have to creatively fill in the upper corner with some rubber filler. Not ideal, but better than not using the car for lack of clean glass.
