In need of the back glass (big window that reaches high into the roof) for a 1958 Adventurer two door hardtop. Tinted is preferred but any will do. I believe 1957, 1958, and 1959 models are the same big glass for 2 door hardtops and some Chrysler models also had this big glass like the New Yorker.

Please advise if you have one or know a source for one.

Thank you,

Fred

This might help somebody confirm in which 57-58 cars the big rear window glass was present. My money is on the FireFlite and New Yorker and, e.g. 1681 703 for the unshaded Solex.

Note: Read the note and about *some* Windsor and Saratoga cars also getting the big 32" New Yorker rear glass.

Interchange works like this:

57 NY'er or Fireflite
58 NY'er and optional on other models. Still Fireflite only
59 NY'er and optional on other models. Like Chrysler this year, Fireflite and optional on other models.

Thanks guys, now I just need one of them. The one that needs replacing is tinted and shaded but any will do. So far I haven’t received a reply from anyone that has one or knows of one.

Still looking. Found some but are too far away and the sellers will not ship.

I'll try Copperstate though they don't show any listed. They may have updated or know of a source. The one on eBay is out - in California with no shipping and way too high in price.
