  • Question on windshield

    Does anyone know how you would tell the difference between a stationwagon , convertible windshield and that of a sedan type for 64-66 ?

    Sure, it is the same Windshield used on all 1963 Larks, the top corners WRAP way more than the '64 Sedan/Hardtop Windshield.

    My guess is that it is slightly taller also.

      is there some feature that stands out so you don't buy the wrong one? I have an opportunity to buy a windshield just don't want to buy the wagon type when I want the sedan type.

        Yes; the only real difference as I said, is the outboard top corners wrap more tightly around to the sides on '63 W/S & '64 Wagon/Convertible.
        The top curvature almost matches that of the bottom wraparound on the '64 Sedan, much more gentle.

        I just measured one of each and even though the Wagon/Convertible roof LOOKS taller, actually they both are very close to 21 1/2" from the outside of the Gasket/Moulding top to bottom, center. I could not acurately measure the glass since these are installed, but it's slightly less.

        It is not too big a deal if you get the wrong one unless there is a lot of shipping cost, plenty of people here could use one or a spare if it is good/perfect used or NOS. There are LOTS of '63 Larks out there, and also quite a few '64 Wagons/Convertibles.

        About $150.00 used, $350.00 New is fair for these, with Tinted being a Plus. All New fresh stock are Chinese and not the same. Look for the PPG or LOF watermark on original factory glass.

          Thanks for your help Rich ....guess I probably should just buy it and worry if its right later...it is a NOS one.
          I know I should have a 50/50 chance its what I want and I can always pedal it if its not next spring.
