  • Body / Glass: Champ Rear Window

    Can you replace the present sliding rear window in a '63 Champ with the fixed rear window without having to do any metal fabrication?
    Also can this be done the other way around, sliders replacing fixed, without metal fabrication? Thanks

    We installed a slider on our '64 T Cab w/o any metal fabrication. It's real fun getting the glass in the channel! Good luck! Rob in PA!

      Thanks for the quick reply. Did the '64 already have sliders before you did this?

      Also, still need to know if anyone has installed a fixed window where a slider had originally been present. PLEASE

        Why not?? The sheet metal was no different on either. No reason why one couldn't change from a slider to a fixed or vice versa.

            Sheet metal looks the same. Am about to swap sliders for fixed glass with another Champ owner (non-SDC member) and am trying to make sure we can both re-install the windows. Thanks

              Are the sliding windows supposed to lock? Can someone please post a picture of the latch and outside window rubber. I think mine is Billy Bobbed.

                May be obvious to most, but not all, so I will post this: Each type window setup has it's own rubber gasket design. IE: The stationary takes one type, the sliding takes it's own type.
